Says Kebbi remains frontline APC state
The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mr. Abubakar Malami, revalidated his membership of the All Progressive Congress (APC) yesterday, Tuesday, February 9, 2021.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu, and made available to newsmen.
According to the statement, after revalidating his membership, Malami was issued with a new APC membership card at Filin Mariya polling unit, Nasarawa 1, Birnin-Kebbi Local Government Area, Kebbi State.
While speaking to journalists on the exercise, Malami urged party members and those who want to join or rejoin the party to come out en mass to get themselves registered in the ongoing membership revalidation exercise across the country.
He said the exercise required collective efforts of all party faithful, with a view to supporting one another to re-strengthen the unity among party members, enhance internal democracy and bring more meaningful development in the country. Malami said the APC is proud of Kebbi State, as the only state in Northwest Nigeria that in 2019 surmounted voter apathy challenges and increased in a number of votes cast from 2015.
According to Gwandu, the APC-led Federal Government has contributed immensely and remarkably done well in executing development projects and programmes across the country and especially in Kebbi State. He said the Federal Government has come out with numerous development initiatives in Kebbi State including agricultural support interventions, road rehabilitation, small and medium scale business support programmes.
With the support of the Federal Government, according to Malami, through rice production, Kebbi State is among the top states that contribute to saving the government N5b worth of rice importation. Malami noted that Kebbi is not only an APC state but has the state governor appointed as Chairman of Progressive Governors’ Forum.
He said in view of the development projects executed in the state by governments at all levels, Kebbu people are committed to supporting APC and the Federal Government achieve their objectives of bringing more development in the country.
He said the party leadership in the state would provide the necessary support to ensure that members get registered before the end of the exercise.
