As Crises within the All Progressives Congress (APC) Zamfara State Chapter Deepens, another faction within the party of the Federal lawmaker Aminu Sani Jaji Representing Kaura Namoda/ Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency and his supporters has emerged.

The emergent of new faction of the party came up on Wednesday when the Chairman Sani Jaji led APC faction Aminu Abubake MC, declared at a press conference held at the party Secretariat, said they they decided to create their faction because the leaders of APC in the state failed to unite its member due to selfish interest.

The new leader of APC faction, said lack of stability and good leadership by the state Executives of the party led to disunity of its members and later created some factions within the party.

According to the Chairman led APC Sani Jaji faction, efforts have been made from their side to there was unity amongst the party members, but the leaders failed to listing the calls.

“We did our best to draw their attention (party leaders) on the dangers of disunity withing our great party but unfortunately they refused to listen to our calls”.

Abubakar MC expressed disgust on the recent meeting by the party Stakeholders held in Kaduna initiated by former Governor Bello Matawalle, but refused to invite any of Sani Jaji supporters for the meeting.

He stressed that, the said meeting was not done in good faith because of non-invitation of Honorable Sani Jaji as one of the stakeholders of the party.

“If Honourable Sani Jaji is not a stakeholder of APC in Zamfara State, who else can we call a stakeholder. For this reason, we have decided to open new APC Secretariat in the state and we reappointed the Vice Chairman of the party and the assistant Secretary to take charge until after the election of the new executive members”

He therefore called on other executive members of the party to stop parading themselves as leaders of APC in the state.

With this development the APC in Zamfara State has now been factionalized in to three different factions, with Senator Abdul’aziz Yari/Bello Mohammed Matawalle faction, Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa faction and now the Honourable Aminu Sani Jaji led APC faction.
