Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has appealed to flag bearers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to embrace party members who lost in the primary elections.

The governor appealed when he hosted a stakeholders’ meeting with the North-West APC consultative committee on Wednesday in Katsina.

He emphasised that unity among party members had always been the gateway to victory in elections.

The governor appreciated the leadership of the party in the state for constituting reconciliation committees to heal the wounds of losses at its primary elections.

Mr Masari urged chairmen of the 34 local government areas in the state to work towards the party’s victory at the 2023 general elections.

APC’s national vice-chairman in the North-West, Salihu Muhammed, who was in attendance, said the meeting aimed at reconciliation as a way to victory at the 2023 general elections.

He said the consultative committee had already presented a preliminary report from five states that had earlier visited Mr Masari at an earlier meeting held in Abuja.

APC chairman in Katsina, Sani Aliyu, commended the governor for constituting a reconciliation committee in the state.

Mr Aliyu said the party in the state also constituted 15 committees to consult with aggrieved members and bring about reconciliation.

He was represented at the meeting by his deputy, Bala Musawa.
