He further noted that Surajo Garba Maikatako Gusau was elected as the faction’s chairman while Abubakar Yargaida emerged as the state secretary of the party.

The faction’s spokesman urged stakeholders to ignore any ‘gimmick’ that might emanate from the camp of Governor Bello Matawalle.

Bakyasuwa said, “Let me reiterate that this new leadership of Senator Marafa’s faction of APC in Zamfara State is very much aware of what’s happening within the party in the state.

“Any state Congress arising from the camp of Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle is a gimmick to divert the attention of people.

“Therefore, with these solid Congresses of Senator Marafa’s faction, this party structure is very much in good shape.”
