Chairman of the Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa led faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, Alhaji Surajo Garba Maikatako, has faulted the claim that Marafa was ever suspended.

The Abdulazeez Yari-led faction of the party in the state in a statement on Monday, insisted that the party had suspended Marafa since 2019, and asked the National Executive Committed (NEC) to ratify his suspension.

But reacting in a statement, Maikatako threatened that the Buni-led Caretaker Committee should “ratify the suspension, at their own peril.”

He also dispelled the claim that Marafa was used by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state against the APC.

“It is apparent that Buni committee has not achieved anything, has not reconciled any body in any chapter of any state and the crisis in APC has worsened even more than it was when he took over.

“The recent claim by the Yari’s self – acclaimed APC Chairman in Zamfara State, Hon Lawal Liman Kaura that Sen. Kabiru Marafa was working for the PDP is not only untrue but irresponsible and a figment of his own imagination.

“If anyone is oblivious to what really happened in Zamfara, it is on record that it was you and your master Yari, who out of desperation conducted parallel primaries in an apparent violation of the constitution of our great party and INEC guidelines on primary elections.

“Unfortunately, you later went to court to legalise your illegality. It was the same legal battle you initiated that caused the party all its elective seats in the state.

“Let me at this juncture, sound a strong warning to Kaura to henceforth stop parading himself as the state party chairman, and to the Gov Buni’s committee not to play with fire,” he said.
