Kabiru Marafa

Senator Kabiru Marafa (APC-Zamfara Central) has stated that indirect primary election will mark the end of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The lawmaker told Punch that he was not aware of the freedom given to the APC governors to adopt indirect primary mode by the leadership of the party.

Marafa said: “One, I am not aware of it. Two, I don’t want to believe that the party under Oshiomhole would concede to that because, like I have always said, he is a man of integrity.

“My little interaction with him shows that he is committed to building a stronger party. I don’t know how he is going to build a stronger party by shying away from the electorate. Anybody who is afraid of facing the electorate has no business in politics.

“Being a human being – that is Oshiomhole, and knowing what the governors are, and the combination of the National Working Committee as it is today, he can be overpowered because politics is a game of number.

“If the majority of the NWC are for something, he cannot dictate otherwise. But one thing I can assure you is that if that is what the party has now conceded, mark my words, it will be the beginning of the end.”
