“The congress that produced Alhaji Mainasara Abubakar Sani as Sokoto State APC Chairman was supervised by the party officials sent by the National Headquarter and had in attendance the Speaker of Sokoto State House of Assembly, members of National Assembly, officials of INEC and 1,342 delegates across the 23 local government areas of the state.
“It’s therefore very imperative for us to make it clear that the congress that produced Mainasara is the only genuine state congress in Sokoto state, while the other congress that was supervised by a single individual claiming to be APC godfather` is nothing but Kangaroo nomination.
“We rejected in totality, the congress conducted by the other faction because of its exclusiveness and flagrant violation of all known civilized norms, rules and party guidelines.
“Therefore it is null and void as it neither satisfied the requirements of the law nor supports the national secretariat of the party.
“As staunch and loyal members of APC, we have unanimously agreed to maintain our support to the leadership of Alhaji Mainasara Abubakar Sani as the authentic State Party Chairman, and we hereby restate our true allegiance to his leadership and dissociate ourselves from the kangaroo appointment made by a single individual,” the group said.
The group added that the founding fathers agreed to a consensus in the constitution to give room for people to talk among themselves and agree.
It lauded members of the party for conducting a peaceful congress.
