The Secretary to the Niger Government (SSG), Ahmed Matane, on Saturday urged members of the APC in the Mashegu council area to unite to ensure the party’s victory in the 2023 general elections at all levels.

He made the call at an APC stakeholders’ meeting held in Kontagora.

Mr Matane tasked members of the party in the area to always deploy patience and wisdom in resolving differences, stressing that this would also strengthen the party’s unity in the area.

He urged party executives to take their roles and responsibilities seriously and be determined to pursue them decently, considering every political party’s objective to win elections and form government.

The SSG said intra-party wranglings were threats to democratic consolidation and stability of the party, hence the need for aggrieved party members in the area to sheath their swords and work to make the party emerge victorious in 2023.

The SSG revealed that the government would soon embark on the rehabilitation of Kawo-Mashegu-Kaboji and Adogon Malam-Babugi-Pellegi roads.

He said the regeneration of the network of roads in the area was a testimonial of Governor Sani Bello’s commitment to ensure that Mashegu Local Government felt the dividends of democracy.

APC chair in Mashegu council, Aliyu Danmasani, appealed to members of the party to continue to have confidence in the party’s leadership and unite to achieve the objectives for which the party was established.
