She warned that the task of emancipation is not easy and that all leaders must belt up for success to be achieved, advising against all forms of intra-party squabbles that lead to factionalism and unnecessary distractions.
According to Barr. Aisha Dankani the many problems faced by Kano and states of the North are too numerous for us to be distracted by petty internal quarrels.
Speaking earlier, Interim National Publicity Secretary, Malam Kabiru Gwangwazo reminded members of the State Working Committee of their critical importance in the PRP hierarchy as the highest decision making body at the state level only next to the State General Congress.
He expressed confidence in the state executive and satisfaction at the recognition they have got from the Interim NEC as conveyed in their meeting with Interim National Chairman Prof. Sule Bello when they paid him a courtesy call assuring him of their solidarity with the Interim NEC. That they were recognized to continue to serve as the Interim State Executive with the understanding that they will in consultation with the Interim NEC accommodate all genuine party men and women at the various levels of the party structure including committees.
