Governors elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are unrelenting in their efforts to end the crises rocking their party, Jigawa State Governor Abubakar Badaru.
According to the governor, President Muhammadu Buhari has assured to do everything possible to leave a strong and united party at the end of his two-term tenure in 2023.
Speaking to reporters in Abuja, Badaru said: “The leadership of the APC Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) is working day and night to ensure that the crisis in the party is resolved.
“I want to also assure you that the President is looking at the situation and is working to ensure that the crisis is resolved. It will be resolved in no time. We are working on it and God willing, it will be over soon.”
On the survival of APC after President Buhari’s exit from office, Badaru said: “The President made a commitment to the governors that he will support us in any way possible to make sure that the party survives and wax stronger after him.”
Badaru said the APC government was working hard to address the security challenges in the country, saying “the government is working so hard to resolve these issues. There is a standing NEC committee that is working on security and it involved all governors in the country.
“The President is worried about the security situation in the country and is working tirelessly to see how the menace can be tackled. You will agree with me that in Zamfara, Katsina and Sokoto, it has dropped significantly, while in Kaduna, the situation is not as it used to be. When you go to the Northeast, we have been able to reduce it signicantly.
