Ahead of the upcoming All Progressives Congress (APC) congress, Alhaji Aminu Achida, the Speaker, Sokoto State House of Assembly, has advised party members to shun godfatherism.
Achida spoke at a meeting of the APC Caucus in support of the governorship candidature of Alhaji Balarabe Salame (APC-Sokoto), who represents Gwadabawa/Illela Federal Constituency.
According to him, the main challenge in Nigeria’s democracy is the act of godfathers and this unleashed more harm to the collective will of the people.
“We are facing a lot of challenges in terms of security, economy and humanitarian activities, which are all elements of our collective act of depending on so-called godfathers.
He commended the APC members at the gathering, while emphasising that the aim of the meeting was to discuss the party’s progress and challenges in the state ahead of congresses.
He promised an all inclusive government when elected and to enhance a security architecture that would improve the living standards of the people.
Earlier, the Chairman of the caucus, Alhaji Bello Dogon-Daji, said that the choice of Salame was not by chance but deserved.
