'No crises in Kaduna APC'

05 November 2013, 16:29

Kaduna - The Kaduna State Coordinator of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, on Tuesday said there was no crises in the state chapter of the party.

Reacting to calls for his removal, Baba-Ahmed said those making the agitation were not members of the party but sponsored by the opposition to distract the APC.

"My suspicious is that the opposition is trying to cause a problem within the party, it is not a problem from people within the APC.

"We are united, we have no problem at all,'' he told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in an interview in Kaduna.

He said that the party was not deterred by the situation, adding that it had made the APC more united and stronger.

"Every body in the APC know that this kind of thing will happen. Those from the outside hoping to cause problems for us must have been disappointed by now, as their action has made the party more unified, stronger and focused.

Hakeem said tremendous progress had been made to reposition the APC to "change the face of politics in the state and the nation''.

"Kaduna APC has done a tremendous amount of work; we are making progress, we have already harmonised all the three parties, we have no problems within our three parties and we are striving to set up local government committees.''

He declared that the APC in the state would commence the registration of members as soon as it receives clear guidelines from its national secretariat.

The coordinator urged those wishing to join the party to remain steadfast and not to waiver in the quest for positive change in the leadership of the state and Nigeria.

NAN reports that a group led by a former second republic commissioner, Mataimaki Tom-Maiyashi had been canvassing for the removal of the APC coordinator, alleging that due process was was not followed in the selection process.
