Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from Niger North Senatorial District have commended President Ahmed Bola Tinubu for nominating Senator Sabi Abdullahi Aliyu from the zone as minister.
They also called for unity among relevant stakeholders to ensure the growth and development of the zone.
The stakeholders gave the commendation after the meeting of the zone at the instance of the Speaker of the state House of Assembly. Hon. Abdulmalik Mohammed Saarkindaji in Minna.
They described his nomination as a great honour to the people of the zone, saying the action of the president has not only addressed the political zoning arrangement in the state, but has adequately compensated them for the overwhelming support given to the party at all levels during the 2023 general elections.
Earlier, the speaker of the House of Assembly, Hon. Sarkindaji, in his welcome address, stressed the need for all the political leaders in the zone to come together to ensure the overall development of the zone.
He observed, “What is left for the zone now is to ensure that it puts its house in order and remains united politically. After producing a state governor for the last eight years, it will take the zone another 16 years before the governor can return to the zone, going by the zoning formula”.
The meeting had in attendance both national and state assembly members, serving and former local government chairmen, former commissioners, the acting state chairman of the party, former secretary to the state government, as well as other political leaders of the zone.
