The Forum of Persons with Disabilities in the All Progressives Congress (APC) has pledged to support Sen. Tanko Al-Makura for the National Chairmanship position of the party.

The forum Chairman, Alhaji Gambo Dahiru, made pledge on Thursday when he led some physically challenged party’s leaders on a visit to Al-Makura in Abuja.

Al-Makura from Nasarawa State in North Central, is one of the National chairmanship aspirants of APC.

Dahiru said if Al-Makura could emerged as the party’s National chairman, it would be a plus for people living with disabilities.

According to him, it will encourage them to know that there is ability in disability.

He said that Al-Makura’s
achievements, as former Governor of Nasarawa State, had impacted much on the state education sector.

“His chairmanship today will bring progress to us tomorrow; therefore, there is need to support him,” the forum chairman said.

Responding, Al-Makura assured them that he would never disappoint them if given the opportunity to become the national chairman of APC.

He said that his chairmanship would be an all inclusive administration, promising to run a party in which members would be rewarded for investing their time and resources.

“I thank you for coming to support me. I assure you that my chairmanship would never bring negative remarks to you.

“As a national chairman of our party, l will make sure that we maintain a winning stance, both at the Federal and State levels,” Al-Makura said. (NAN)
