Ganduje/Basiru’s leadership, APC’s path to stable polity – Omo-Agege
Former Deputy Senate President, Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that the emergence of Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje and Sen. Ajibola Basiru as new National Chairman and Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), is a path to stable polity.
Omo-Agege, in a congratulatory message by his Media Adviser, Mr Sunny Areh on Friday in Asaba, said ”with both of them running the APC, the path of stable polity is assured.
“Just as Nigerians rightly put their fate in President Bola Tinubu to right the ship of the Nigerian state, the emergence of Ganduje and Basiru as national chairman and secretary of the APC is the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle on a productive and progressive team Nigeria needs to return to the path of growth.”
The ex-senator said that their emergence was key to the success of the bold reform agenda of the president and the the National Assembly.
According to him, when the party is in trusted hands and there is a robust and cordial relationship between the legislature and the executive arm, the reform agenda of the president will be successful.
Omo-Agege added, ” Dr Ganduje’s broad national outlook and dispassionate perception of issues made him have the remarkable record of being the first and only governor to win a second term in Kano State. He is an achiever.
“As for Sen. Basiru, I worked closely with him in the 9th session of the National Assembly where he was the Senate spokesman. He is very diligent and straightforward,” he said.
Omo-Agege, however, noted that Ganduje and Basiru had the task of ensuring that the federal lawmakers and indeed all party faithful endorsed President Tinubu’s bid to chart a fresh course for the economy.
Ganduje, a two-term former governor of Kano, on Thursday emerged National Chairman of APC alongside Sen. Basiru, who was elected the new National Secretary.
Basiru was the spokesman of the Senate in the 9th session of the NASS.
The APC National Executive Committee (NEC) during a meeting on Thursday, ratified Ganduje and Basiru to replace the immediate past National Chairman of the APC, Sen. Abdullahi Adamu and former National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore.
The NEC meeting was attended by President Bola Tinubu and the Vice President, Kashim Shettima.
