The All Progressives Congress (APC) has confirmed the appointment of the former governor of Kano state, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, as its National Chairman.
The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the ruling party on Thursday confirmed the appointment of Ganduje and that of Basiru Ajibola as the new national secretary.
APC’s NEC took the decision at its 12th meeting which took place at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. The meeting was chaired by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Ganduje replaces Abdullahi Adamu as APC’s National Chairman while Ajibola replaced Iyiola Omisore as the national secretary.
President Bola Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, members of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, and chieftains of the party in the National Assembly, amongst others were present at the NEC meeting.
Tinubu said the APC has won the elections and it is now time to deliver the promises of good governance to the Nigerian people.
The President insisted that the 2023 elections was the best election in Nigeria’s history.
Visibly absent at the NEC meeting were ex-President Muhammadu Buhari and former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo. The first National Chairman of the party, Bisi Akande, was however, present.
