The All Progressives Congress (APC) faction in Zamfara led by Senator Kabir Marafa, said on Monday it would go to Supreme Court for the interpretation of the Appeal Court’s judgment on the congress in the state.
The Publicity Secretary of the APC faction in the state, Bello Bakyasuwa stated this at a news conference in Gusau, the state capital.
The Appeal Court, Sokoto Division, on Thursday, affirmed the congress that produced the party executives led by Alhaji Lawal Liman and set aside the earlier judgment of the Zamfara State High Court which nullified the APC congress in the state.
He said: “We have decided to go to the Supreme Court for the interpretation of the judgment on the APC congress in the state made by the Appeal Court, Sokoto Division.
“We are not satisfied with the Appeal Court judgment on this matter which set aside the earlier judgment.
“I think the State High Court, Gusau, nullified the congress for lack of merit.
“We believe that setting aside the earlier judgment does not mean that the party leadership should be handed over to Yari’s faction.
“Some people are accusing us that our faction wants to disrupt peace in the state chapter of the party but they are just misunderstanding us.
“We just want justice and fairness to prevail as well as to end impunity in Zamfara politics.”
Bakyasuwa accused the national leadership of the party of bias in resolving the party’s crisis in the state.
The spokesman added: “The national leadership of the party failed to address the party’s crisis in the state up till now, that it is reaching the worst stage.
“We are not satisfied with any decision giving the Yari -led faction the control of the party in the state.
“To avoid future embarrassment for the party, we are appealing to the Mai Mala Buni’s Caretaker Committee to initiate peaceful ways of addressing the party’s crisis in the state.”
