It stated that the failure to recognise the efforts of some key members, including former Governors Kayode Fayemi, Umaru Tanko Almakura, Bello Masari, Ahmad Sani Yerima, and Abdusalam Abdulkarim Zaura, who contributed significantly to the president’s victory, demonstrated that the party’s reward system needed to be completely overhauled.
Abubakar Kurawa, Chairman of the PYLA, stated this yesterday while speaking to journalists in Abuja.
He expressed his displeasure with President Tinubu’s ministerial and other appointments, which he said did not consider those who worked tirelessly and gave their time, physical energy, and hard-earned resources to support the party’s victory in the February 25 presidential elections.
Kurawa also expressed concern that Fayemi, Almakura, Masari, Dambazzau, Abdulkarim Zaura, Senators Aishatu Binani, Ovie Omo-Agege, Andy Uba, and others had yet to receive even a letter of commendation for their efforts.
He claimed that if the ‘democratic injustice’ is not addressed properly, the APC will be doomed in the race to 2027 and beyond.
Also, on the list of politicians who gave the APC participation in 2023 polls their best shot was Abdussalam Abdulkarim Zaura (popularly known as AA Zaura).
