*Group warns Katsina APC against overheating the polity*
The Initiative for Good Governance has cautioned the Funtua Zonal Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC), Malam Muazu Bala Abubakar against “destabilizing the APC”.
Chairman of the group, Salisu Tanko Wusono, who gave the warning in a media statement in Kaduna, said all of the President Muhammadu Buhari appointees being threatened by the APC Zonal Chairman of Katsina State “are people who have performed very well under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration. Fir example, NPA’s Hadiza Bala Usman has been fighting corruption and by dealing squarely with prominent Nigerians thought to be untouchable”.
Wusono said: ” As a group, we are deeply disturbed by the sudden attack puportedly by an APC chiftain against President Buhari’s appointees and we find this an unnecessary distraction. We are also upset, this kind of destabilization agenda is coming from our President’s immediate constituency”.
The Good Governance group Chairman also noted that at this critical point in the history of the Buhari administration, “it is strange that it took the Funtua APC Zonal Chairman, more than four years to start complaining”.
Wusono asked the Zonal Chairman to be considerate of national interest and the stability of the Buhari administration and “stop this political game of destabilization”.
The statement indicated: ” We are shocked that Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State is gradually falling into the hands of these anti-Buharist”.
It would be recalled that few days ago on Monday, Nigerian newspapers were awash with reports of purported plans to dismiss some notable President Buhari appointees from the Katsina State. The Funtua Zonal was quoted as saying it was decision the State chapter of the party took at an emergency meeting at the Government House, Katsina on Sunday night.
