Ganduje backed against Adamu by APC North leaders

Dr Abdullahi Ganduje

Ganduje backed against Adamu by APC North leaders. The Coalition of North-Central Leaders of the ruling All Progressives Congress has backed former Kano State Governor Dr Abdullahi Ganduje to succeed the party’s immediate past National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

The development comes only two days after APC chairmen from seven North-West states approved the 73-year-old lawmaker at a conference in Kaduna.

The alleged endorsement of Ganduje as the preferred choice of President Bola Tinubu and the APC governors has generated mixed feelings among party faithful and members of the ruling party.

While a few party chieftains felt the next national chairman should be allowed to emerge from Nasarawa State in line with the zoning arrangement of APC, others backed the choice of the former Kano governor.

Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, Convener of the coalition, Okpokwu Ogenyi, stated that though the current zoning formula cedes the office to their zone, the APC North-Central leaders have agreed to forfeit the office of national chairman in favour of Ganduje.

“We, the people of North Central, have held national chairmanship positions of all ruling parties in the country and have done well in terms of party administration,” he remarked. We are delighted to say that a zone chairman led the party to victory in the most recent residential election.

“Today, our father, who was the APC’s National Chairman, resigned, leaving the position vacant.” As you maybe aware, there is no vacuum in governance so a competent hand must be employed in order to over our party forward.

“On this note, we wholeheartedly support Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as National Chairman of our great Party, the APC.” Abdullahi Ganduje is a party member who has established himself as a renowned intellectual.

“As North Central Youths, one could wonder why we should not fight for the position to be kept in the zone. The truth is that we have contributed our quota and would want to see other zones given the opportunity to participate in the governance of the Party. When it comes to national interests, we in the North Central are far above trivialities, avarice, and selfishness.”
