AGGRIEVED APC ASPIRANTS: 'The more Oshiomhole talks, the more crisis he creates'

The Zamfara Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has challenged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) led government to reveal the names of politicians alleged to be sponsors of the Boko Haram threat in the state.

Governor Bello Matawalle had through his Director-general of Press Affairs, Yusuf Idris, alleged that some disgruntled politicians had perfected plans to destabilise the state.

Idris while addressing newsmen earlier on Tuesday in the state, said credible intelligence gathered showed that some politicians were collaborating with dispersed elements of Boko haram, to launch series of attacks on innocent and peace loving people in the State.

“According to the intelligence report, cruel and mischievous elements have perfected plans to launch attacks in seven local government areas and other strategic places within the state capital. Two important personalities of the state are targeted for elimination should this dastardly act succeed,” Idris claimed.

Reacting, the APC Publicity Committee Chairman in the state, Ibrahim Birnin-Magaji, speaking on Tuesday during the Zamfara North Zonal Stakeholders meeting in Kaura-Namoda, challenged the governor to expose the said politicians.

He said: “we heard the state government saying that some politicians are working against peace and stability in the state.

“Let the state government expose the names of those politicians behind insecurity as it said according to that intelligence report.”

The state party Chairman, Alhaji Lawal Liman on his part maintained that the APC was a law abiding, peace loving party supporting peace and stability in the state.

“If the state government said some politicians are working against peace in the state, it should count APC out of their allegation”, he said.

Liman urged members of the party in the state to continue to be united and law abiding.
