Speaking after the meeting, the Chairman of the state chapter of the All Local Government of Nigeria (ALGON), Alhaji Muhammad Umar, said discussions centred around the development of the party in the state.

“You know, Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari is the leader of our great party in the state, therefore we have to be meeting with him from time to time for fatherly advice and consultations.

“Yari told us to continue to be law abiding and support government and security agencies to succeed in the fight against banditry activities in the state.

“The ex-governor also gave us message to our people at grassroots that they should continue with prayers and seek for Allah’s intervention on the security challenges facing the state”, the ALGON Chairman said.

NAN further reports that APC lost control of the state following Supreme Court’s Judgement over its leadership crisis prior to the 2019 general elections, it however, still controls 14 LGCs of the state.
