The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, said on Tuesday Kebbi remained an All Progressives Congress (APC) frontline state.

Malami, according to a statement issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Jibrilu Gwandu, stated this during the revalidation of his membership of APC at Filin Mariya Polling Unit, Nasarawa, Birnin-Kebbi local government area of the state.

He urged party members to take part in the exercise.

The AGF said: “The exercise requires collective efforts of all party faithful with a view to supporting one another.

“This will re-strengthen the unity among party members, enhance internal democracy and bring more meaningful development in the country.’’

Malami said APC was proud of Kebbi as the only state in the North-West which overcame voters’ apathy and increased number of votes cast in 2015.

He said the Federal Government had executed development projects and programmes across the country and especially in Kebbi.

He added: “The APC-led government has come out with numerous development initiatives in Kebbi, including agricultural support interventions, road rehabilitation, small and medium scale business support programmes.

“Also, through rice production, Kebbi State is among the top states that contribute to saving the federal government about N5 billion from rice importation.

“Kebbi is not only an APC State. The state governor was appointed as the Chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum.”
