Following the reconciliation of the two factions of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara state, members have shelved their differences and collapsed the ruling party into one structure.
In light of this, Abdulazeez Yari, former Zamfara state governor, has been picked as the party’s new state leader, the Anaedoonline.ng reports.
Mikailu Barau, a chieftain of the party, made the disclosure in an 11-point resolution on Sunday, February 7, at the end of a meeting in Kaduna state.
Members of the ruling party in the northern state have also agreed to form a formidable force ahead of future elections.
This development is coming almost a week after Yari and Marafa finally agreed to embrace peace after months of power struggle. Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe state on Monday, February 1, met with the two factional leaders of the APC in the state to end the lingering crisis rocking the party.
Buni, who is the caretaker committee chairman of the APC, met with Yari and Marafa at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
