The North-West campaign council of the All Progressives Congress (APC) says it has began sensitisation of members and galvanise support for the victory of the party in the upcoming general elections.
The first set of the election: Presidential and National Assembly is slated for Feb.16.
Retired Maj.-Gen. Muhammadu Magoro, Chairman of the council said in Daura on Thursday that the council comprised 21 senior and committed members of the ruling party.
He reiterated the commitment and determination of the council toward the electoral success of all candidates vying for electoral offices under the platform of the party in the forthcoming general elections.
Magoro said the council had impressive interactive sessions with state governors across the zone.
He said the best way for party stakeholders to face the election was to reach out to all those that mattered, to ensure victory toward the electoral success of the party.
Magoro said the council also paid similar visits to important party members who felt aggrieved, to broker peace and achieve reconciliation.
According to him, politics is a game of number, adding that the party needs more supporters to come on board.
He lauded Katsina, Jigawa, Kano and Kaduna state governors for the advice they offered the council, on how to achieve peaceful conduct of the general elections and ensure success for the party.
Magoro noted that the governors concerned advocated strict adherence to electoral laws as the only way that would guarantee peaceful, free, fair and credible election.
He said the council would soon visit Sokoto Kebbi and Zamfara to ensure effective sensitisation of party members and how to ensure peaceful election.
Magoro called on Nigerians to re-elect President Muhammadu Buhari on Feb.16 election, considering his administration’s positive impact in the key sectors of the national economy.
He listed agriculture, railways, roads, security, youth empowerment, anti-corruption crusade among others as some of the laudable achievements of the APC government under the credible leadership of Buhari.
The chairman assured that the next four years of APC in power would be the good years of fulfillment and consolidation on the successes so far recorded.
Magoro expressed optimism that pending pre-election issues in Zamfara and Rivers, concerning the party, would soon be addressed in the most civilised and acceptable manner.
