The meeting will hold in Lafia before August ends.
Governor Umaru Al-Makura of Nasarawa State on Monday said that the maiden meeting of the All Progressive Congress (APC) governors’ forum will be held in Lafia, the state capital, by the end of August 2013.
Mr. Al-Makura dropped the hint during a stakeholders meeting of the APC in the government house, Lafia.
The meeting, which was attended by former executives of the defunct three merging political parties, ACN, ANPP and CPC, agreed to set up a committee to commence the process of winding down of the parties in the state.
Mr. Al-Makura explained that the APC was born out of patriotism and that it would be a success through legitimate means and internal democracy. He said the party will work with the ideals of the people and ensure fairness without religious or tribal biases in other to move the country forward.
He said the success of the merger is a signal for true patriotism for those who struggled for the realization of the APC.
“We are doing it out of patriotism and to redirect the affairs of the country for the better thorough visionary development,” he said.
Mr. Al-Makura said the APC will genuinely serve Nigeria and better the lot of the ordinary citizens.
“Our power evolves from the grassroot because of the respect and recognition we have for our teaming members in trying to depart from the mentality of the past as the case may be in other political parties”.
“Before I was operating as an orphan as the only CPC governor but now I can raise my head above the roof with about ten colleagues to champion our collective course,” he added.
A highlight of the meeting was the distribution of brooms, which is the symbol of the party.
