In a significant development, the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has chosen Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governor of Kano, as the party’s new national chairman.
The election occurred during the 12th NEC meeting at the Congress Hall of Transcorp Hilton in Abuja. Ajibola Basiru, the former Senate spokesperson, was also elected the party’s national secretary.
Prominent party leaders, including President Bola Tinubu and Vice-President Kashim Shettima, attended the meeting. Additionally, members of the progressive governors’ Forum (PGF) and the national assembly were in attendance.
While immediate past President Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo could not attend due to prior commitments, Bisi Akande, the party’s first national chairman, was present in the hall.
During his acceptance speech, Abdullahi Ganduje pledged to strengthen internal democracy within the APC, emphasizing the importance of fostering inclusivity and transparency within the party’s decision-making processes.
The party convened its national caucus meeting on Wednesday, where critical discussions and preparations were made for the subsequent NEC meeting.
In July, Abdullahi Adamu and Iyiola Omisore resigned from their positions as the party’s national chairman and national secretary, respectively, paving the way for the new leadership to be elected.
As the APC moves forward under the guidance of its new national chairman and secretary, the party aims to consolidate its internal structures, maintain unity, and strategize for upcoming political challenges and opportunities on the national stage.
