A former chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara State, Senator Kabiru Marafa has indicated that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is a mere political party not a religion that he will cling to despite humiliation.
On Sunday the former Governor of Zamfara State, Abdul Aziz Yari, Senator Kabiru Garba Mafara and their supporters had dumped the APC for the PDP.
Reacting to the development Marafa said “APC is not Islam, it is my religion that I can not leave for whatever reason, but a political party, I can leave and join anyone of my choice,” he said.
He described the national ruling party another man’s compound not a home
Marafa said the party was not fair to him as him and his supporters were treated as outcasts
He explained that even among his former party, some people fought to make sure they were frustrated out of the party they suffered to build and nurture.
According to him, the new National Chairman of the ruling party, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, cannot be of any difference from what the former Caretaker Chairman of the party, Mai Mala Buni, had done.
“Politics is about winning elections and everything, so we cannot stay in a house that we are not needed,” Marafa said.
“As far as I am concerned, I am a fulfilled person as far as this project APC is called. If there is anything left, I am waiting to see how the architect of this cruelty meted out to the people of Zamfara State, how they are going to fare in politics.
“But for now, I am happy, I told them to their faces in Kaduna that they will never benefit out of the machinations they were doing at that time, that is Mai Mala and his co-travellers. And I’m happy that they have lost out and they have lost out disgracefully.
