APC crisis: Marafa faction heads to Supreme Court

 

The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State has dragged up to the Supreme Court.

The faction led by Senator Kabiru Marafa says it would seek the interpretation of the judgement on the APC congresses in the state.

Publicity Secretary of the faction, Bello Bakyasuwa, made the announcement at a press briefing in Gusau on Monday.

The Court of Appeal, Sokoto Division, last Thursday, affirmed the congresses that produced the party executives led by Lawal Liman.

The judgement set aside earlier judgement by a Zamfara High Court, which nullified the congresses.

“We have decided to go to the Supreme Court for the interpretation of the judgement on the APC congresses made by the Appeal Court, Sokoto Division. I think the State High Court, Gusau nullified the congresses because of lack of merit.

“We believe that setting aside the earlier judgement does not mean that the party leadership should be handed over to Yari’s faction. Those saying our faction wants to disrupt peace in the state chapter are misunderstanding us.”

Bakyasuwa said all they want is justice and fairness and an end to impunity in Zamfara.

The spokesman accused the national leadership of the party of bias.

He noted that they failed to address the issues, lamenting that the situation is at the worst stage.

“We are not satisfied with any decision to give the Yari led faction the control of the party. To avoid future embarrassment, we are appealing to the Mai Mala Buni’s Caretaker Committee to initiate peaceful ways of addressing the crisis,” Bakyasuwa said.
