APC stakeholders decry slow voter registration in North West
All Progressives Congress (APC) stakeholders in North West have decried the slow voter registration in the geopolitical zone.
During a parley with the party’s National Vice Chairman (North West), Dr. Salihu Lukman, in Dutse, yesterday, they blamed the development on INEC data capturing systems.
This, they argued, was responsible for the poor outcome recorded in the zone, comprising Kano, Jigawa, Katsina, Zamfara, Kaduna, Sokoto and Kebbi states.
Lukman, however, assured the participants that the issues raised at the interactive session would reflect in his report for documentation and action.
The stalwarts backed the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu’s picking of Senator Kashim Shettima as his running mate for the 2023 poll.
They reiterated their commitment towards ensuring victories of Tinubu and other flag-bearers during the elections.
Governor Badaru Abubakar lauded the Lukman-led party officials for visiting Jigawa State on a fact-finding mission.
Represented by his deputy, Umar Namadi, the governor suggested establishment of a committee to reconcile aggrieved party members and a body that could give more vent to voter registration and ensure its successful end.
