Minister of state for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Mariya Mahmoud, has expressed commitment to rebuild the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the nation’s capital.
She called on the stakeholders to close ranks and work together for the success of the party.
Mahmoud who made this commitment at an engagement meeting with leaders of APC and other party faithful, also called for dedication and commitment on the part of members.
The minister, who expressed concern over the poor performance of the party in the last presidential elections in the territory, however, assured that the party will overcome its challenges in subsequent elections.
She further called for honesty and openness in communication, stressing that communication gap has been a problem in every aspect of life.
“Then I want us to be honest and open. In whatever it is, let us follow the due process to communicate. Make sure we pass that information appropriately that will be useful to the party and the nation at large.
“If we want to succeed, we have to be honest with each other, we have to be dedicated. And we have to give support to one another.
“So that is why we have to come together, work together with sincerity and the feeling of the party in our hearts. So, by God’s grace, we are going to make it,” she said.
The minister pledged that she would use her political expertise to replicate the success stories recorded in Kano State saying; “Dr. Mariya is now in Abuja, and I need my APC family members so that we can work together.
And I know we can do it.
“Kano is the largest and the most populous state in the country. We have 44 local government areas with 484 political wards, and we have only six area councils in FCT with 62 wards. So this is very, very visible and achievable.”
While acknowledging some of the problems facing the party, Mahmoud affirmed that with President Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the helm of affairs, the party will overcome its challenges.
“I know, we have problems, and every party has problems. But our own has already been solved by the Almighty Allah, because He has given us the power.
“We are the one in charge. And I assure you, Mr. President is with FCT 100 percent, the First Lady is with FCT 100 percent,” she said.
