APC Kaduna North Senatorial District insists on democratic contest

As committed democrats, the APC Kaduna North Senatorial Zone stands firmly for a democratic contest.

Members in our zone expect the party to permit a free and fair primary. We do not think it is fair to the sole aspirant that was cleared and the others that were not to deny our delegates a democratic choice. Alhaji Suleiman Abdu Kwari is an eminently qualified leader in our party, and he has campaigned vigorously to secure the support of the delegates to the primary election. We welcome the clearance purportedly granted him, but we ask that the clearance be extended to the other aspirants, unless there are credible reasons not to do so.

Alhaji Muhammed Lawal Aliyu and Dr. Abba Ibrahim have also campaigned for the preference of delegates. We think it is only fair that these two party members should also be cleared to make the senatorial primaries in our zone a unifying and democratic contest.

It is important that the APC continues to be a beacon of democratic standards, upholding party spirit, respecting choice and promoting solidarity among members. We do not see any reason for excluding these two members. We therefore ask the national leadership of the party to promptly reverse itself and clear all the aspirants. Let the votes of our members be the final arbiter.
