A member of the House of Representatives, Ibrahim Al-Mustapha, has come out to make a bold claim and m disclosed confidently that the All m Progressives Congress will take over m Sokoto State come 2023.
Al-Mustapha, who represents the Federal constituency of Wurno/Rabah of Sokoto State, told media house and News Agencyof Nigeria in Abuja on Monday that, “Sokoto is an APC State”.
“It is just exigencies of politics that we lost the state in 2019. I believe even those in the PDP will soon join us.
“So, Insha Allahu, come 2023, APC will take over Sokoto State, God willing.”
He further went on to share his delight with the resolution that had put in place to resist the crisis ravaging the party in the state, as regards the state chairmanship, which led to a litigation.
“It was an impasse. It was a little challenge and that is the beauty of democracy”.
“Some people will feel disenchanted and you cannot stop them from airing their opinions, positive or negative”.
“Some people felt they were supposed to take over the leadership of the party at the state level against the constituted authorities”.
“They just came and held a parallel congress, after you have gone through all the constitutional processes, and you were able to produce good leadership at the wards, local government and state levels, which is even against the law,” the lawmaker noted.
He added that some of it’s members aggrieved had gone to the court bringing about the emergence of two factions. Noting that a third faction, led by the one time former governor of the state, followed suit and the court granted them an injunction.
He said: “At the end of the day, the court gave its ruling on Friday, and Alhaji Isa Sadiq-Achida, was sworn-in as the Chairman on Saturday.
“That brought an end to the impasse. The issue now is to go back home and aggregate ourselves.
“Thank God, our leader, Sen. Aliyu Wamakko, is a very magnanimous person; very accommodating.
“I am sure when they come, they will be accommodated.”
