Abuja council polls: APC group backs Yamawo for chairmanship

Ahead of the 2022 Abuja Area Councils election, a forum of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) support group has called on the leadership and members of the party in the Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) to support Tanko Yamawo to fly its chairmanship ticket. Addressing a press conference at the National Secretariat of APC in Abuja, Muazu Labo, who led the group, said AMAC deserves the leadership of Yamawo who has remained loyal to the party despite contesting for the chairmanship position and losing on three different occasions. Labo described Yamawo as a grassroots politician who has maintained close contact with his people including women and youths, expressing confidence that the politician will do a great job for AMAC and for the party.

Rather he continued to support the party to ensure it won the last local council election. And today, he has come out again. “We want the party leadership to recognize someone who has been a loyal party member who has been in the party from inception helping the party to win elections in his terrain. “He’s not like others who contest and when they lose, they go to another party but he has stood by the party. He has the party in his heart,” he said. Speaking on the capability of the aspirant, Labo maintained that Yamawo with his vast knowledge and experience and the team of seasoned civil servants he will work with at the local government, will take AMAC to the next level.
