The Bauchi State APC Progressive Circle has expressed its readiness to identify people and encourage the party to give them tickets to contest for legislative and executive seats that can make difference in the state come 2023 general elections.
The state chairman of the circle, Alhaji Surajo Dada stated this in an interview with The Triumph, adding that the group was also working towards ensuring the survival and sustainability of democracy in the state.
To actualise this, Dada informed that the Circle would identify credible people and encourage the party to give them its tickets to vie for legislative and executive seats in order for the APC to make a difference in the state in 2023 elections.
The chairman said the Progressive Circle would not only become prominent in the scheme of politics in the state but would also remain as a political pressure group which would serve as a check on government.
“We will do all it legally takes to actualise the dream of becoming a prominent and formidable force that shall be seen and regarded as an indispensable factor in determining APC’s victory in any elections in the state.
“We will also constitute ourselves as a political pressure group that shall be obliged to objectively checkmate the affairs of any government,” he said.
He promised that the group would remain peaceful and law abiding in its activities, calling on the youths of the state to eschew thuggery during and after electioneering processes for the state to remain peaceful.
