Members of the All Progressives Congress in Zamfara State have given a condition for them to support the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu.
Stakeholders of the party stated that they will vote for the former governor of Lagos State only if he would put an end to banditry and insecurity in the state.
The stakeholders made this known late on Wednesday during the fact-finding tour of a delegation from APC North West to all the seven states in the geopolitical zone.
VANTAGE NEWS reports that the APC members in a statement issued on Wednesday by Musa Mailafiya Mada, the APC Zonal Publicity Secretary (North West), said a delegation led Malam Salihu Lukman-led delegation met with party stakeholders in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital.
The statement read, “As the Fact-Finding tour of the North-West Zonal Officials of All Progressives Congress reaches Zamfara today, stakeholders of the party in the State assured the Zonal Chairman Malam Salihu Lukman and his team that they have their unflinching loyalty.
“They also said that they are united on all fronts to give the party the required result necessary to claim the state in totality.
“Yet, they demand the commitment of the presidential and all other candidates vying for electoral posts from the party for them to deliver the state to them.”
The statement added that “the party’s stakeholders demand a serious commitment on deteriorating security situation in the State and the region from anybody vying for any electoral post especially the presidential candidate from the party to work for his success,” they stated.
Tinubu faces a tough challenge from Atiku Abubakar, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, and Peter Obi, the candidate of the Labour Party who keeps gathering momentum as the days go by.
