APC National Convention: Senator Al-Makura Purchases Chairmanship Form

The immediate past Governor of Nasarawa State and Senator representing Nasarawa South Senatorial District, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, has purchased expression of interest form to contest for the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Senator Al-Makura who according to reports made available to our correspondent, purchased the form on Tuesday (March 15, 2022), is now officially in the race to occupy the topmost party position in the APC.

Disclosing this to the press, the Director General (DG) of Al-Makura Campaign Organisation, Comrade Dominic Allancha, said the purchase of the form was to prove sceptics wrong that a particular APC Chairmanship candidate was purportedly endorsed by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Al-Makura, was the first APC Chairmanship aspirant to purchase nomination form yesterday Tuesday. That’s to tell you that we are battle ready to slug it out whatever way it comes.

“We are running a race, we are  not in competition with anybody and this is to prove to to you that no candidate was purportedly endorsed by President Muhammadu Buhari” he said.

Allancha, commended the leadership of APC for the commencement of convention activities and for providing a level playing ground for all aspirants by selling nomination forms.

Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura was one of the earliest persons to declare his interest to vie for the national chairmanship of the All Progressives Congress. This led to his endorsement by the stakeholders of APC in his home State, Nasarawa.

He has however been facing stiff competition from another former Governor of Nasarawa State and serving senator, Abdullahi Adamu whom reports say is enjoying the backing of the powers that be in the APC. It is still not known if Senator Adamu has purchased his form as at the time this report was compiled.
