I\’ll sustain APC\’s gains beyond 2023 – Al-Makura


Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

A former governor of Nasarawa State, Umaru Al-Makura, has promised to sustain the gains and keep the All Progressives Party (APC) in power beyond 2023 if he emerges the national chairman.

Al-Makura spoke in Abuja on Thursday, at the APC Press Corps, second Annual Public Lecture/Summit themed: APC beyond 2023- The Tasks Ahead: The Role of Stakeholders.

Al-Makura, who is an aspirant for the office of APC National Chairman ahead of the proposed National Convention in February 2022, said “we are in a period of transition and the best thing that can happen is for us to start thinking about an APC beyond 2023.

“I am also perturbed that our leader, our role model, the unifier of this party that has held this party together in the past six years and a half would be on his way out. Are we prepared to carry the mantle and at least, try to do what he has been doing? That is the question. What needs to be done is sustaining the gains and securing the future.

“In sustaining the gains, we cannot but commend the caretaker committee for the efforts that they have been able to make to ensure that this party has been able to attain all these landmarks within the period in which they served.

“I am here as one of the aspirants. It may interest you to know what my motivation is. What is my motive? What is my objective of wanting to be the national chairman of this great party? It is not about myself. It is not about the ego or what goes with that.
