He also gave assurances that if Senator Al-Makura eventually becomes the national chairman of the party, he will uphold the APC constitution, respect the party’s organs, and consolidate on the wins so far made by the party.
Governor Sule said that Senator Al-Makura stands tall in the race based on his experience, capability, integrity, and wide support he has among all interests in the party and above all being the only person Nasarawa State knows.
