The All Progressives Congress (APC) Pressure Group, Katsina State was initiated on the following basis:-
- To mobilise Katsina State Citizenry on the APC membership registration and revalidation exercise which commensed Saturday the 30th day of January, 2021 by issuing President Muhammadu Buhari APC membership card that signified him being the first bonafide member of the Great and Ruling Party – the APC. This will resolve in checking the excess of the Party’s leadership at all levels on lacking in democratic principles by muzzling the party and ensuring that the process is not run in accordance with it’s Constitution and guidelines, which we believe led into the fiasco widely noticeable in the present situation.
- To also mobilize the people on the process of selecting party delegates and executives right from the Ward, Local Government, State and National levels when it comes to Congresses and the National Convention. The Group considers the exercise as a very important one for the State’s democracy and it’s yearning for good leadership as a requirement for the process of nation building.
- The Group concurred with President Muhammadu Buhari’s broadcast last week where he urged all good people, not only to speak but to rise up and get involved in the task of improving their society, adding that “for most citizens, their greatest weapon is their vote”. Register now for your party and register when time comes for election.
- The Group also hastens to commend the National Caretaker Committee Chairman, the Governor of Yobe State, His Excellency Mai Mala and his members for resorting to the fresh APC membership registration and revalidation exercise which will definitely bring unity and understanding amongst people and therefore guaranteeing peace, progress and development of the Nigerian nation. Members of the Group also reaffirm their loyalty and commitment for His Excellency, the Governor of Katsina State, Rt. Hon. Aminu Bello Masari for his desire to bring Katsina State out of the woods.
- Finally, the Group is calling on all well-meaning citizens of Katsina State to come out in mass and obtain the APC membership card. It also urge the people to give their maximum support in ensuring a hitch-free exercise.
We pray for our dear Governor’s well’being, guidance and protection. This is in addition to the continuous prayers for peace and progress of our dear State and the Nigerian nation at large.
6.Our source of concern is the issue of Internal Democracy. The APC PRESSURE GROUP will make sure that, Internal Democracy is maintained within the APC. Examples were sited with PDP when the Party got lost to the Election in 2015 simply becouse there was no internal Democracy in PDP then as they imposed candidates to the Party members contrary to there interest.
The group however thanked president Muhammadu Bihari for his good will and his determinations to put Nigeria in to a better place.
