A retired army officer, Col. Dauda Gora, is the State Chairman of the R-APC in Kaduna State.
Other members of the state executive committee of the party are a former Commissioner for Women Affairs under Governor Nasir el-Rufai, Mrs. Rabiu Abdulsalam as deputy chairman, Mr. Jafaru Abbas, as secretary, Shehu Abubakar as assistant secretary, Alhaji Uba Maiwashi as zonal vice-chairman (I), Abdullahi Jafaru as zonal vice chairman (II), Hosea Buba as zonal vice chairman (III) and Auta Maisamari as state legal adviser.
Others are Ayuba Imam as Treasurer, Pastor Ephraim Haruna as state Financial Secretary and Mock Kure as the state publicity secretary.
Gora, prior to inaugurating other members of the executive members, pledged their loyalty to the Buba Galadima-led national executive committee of the party.
He said the APC in the state had nothing close to semblance of democracy under the leadership of the Mallam Nasir el-Rufai.
Gora added, “You are all aware of the reasons informing the emergence of the Reformed-All Progressives Congress from the All Progressives Congress. You are equally aware of how different political platforms collapsed to form the APC prior to the 2015 general elections.
“Sadly, the yearnings and aspirations of our people have not come to fruition both at the national level and in our dear Kaduna State in particular.
“We were made to believe that we were dealing with democrats, and so we entrusted them with our votes, little did we know that we were casting our votes to unleash the worse form of dictatorship on the hapless people of Kaduna State. Today, those ideals of democracy which include the right to vote and be voted for in free, fair and credible elections have all been stultified.”
