The governor who was represented by the Speaker of the state’s House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Nasiru Muazu Magarya at the event, maintained that all members of the party respect its constitution especially as regards leadership roles in order to uphold the tenets of discipline, loyalty and harmony.

He said, as responsible leaders, the leaders of the party at all levels respect hiararchy which recognizes President Muhammadu Buhari as the party’s leader at the National level and state governors in APC controlled states as leaders of the party in their respective states.

This according to him, has ensured the gains of the party throughout the country.

Earlier, leader of the team from the APC National Secretariat, Alhaji Kabiru Masari said they were deployed to the state for the exercise according to the dictates of the party’s constitution.
