Speaking at the state APC secretariat, Al-Makura said;
“I have been under pressure by my party men and people from my senatorial zone to represent them at the National Assembly.
After thoughtful consideration, I Umaru Tanko Al-Makura have accepted to contest for the seat of the southern senatorial zone in 2019.”
The governor also debunked any friction between himself and Senator Abdullahi Adamu. He took the opportunity to also mock the PDP, saying that the party was ‘finished’.
“My plan initially was that we will convert the PDP state secretariat to APC state office because PDP is finished, but I thought otherwise that how can we occupy such a desecrated, polluted temple as APC office.”
