Ganduje Elected As APC National Chairman, Basiru Becomes National Secretary

Abdullahi Ganduje, the immediate past governor of Kano State, has been elected as the National Chairman of the governing All Progressives Congress (APC).
On Thursday, the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) confirmed Ajibola Basiru, a former Senate spokesperson, as the National Secretary and elected Ganduje as the party’s new leader.
At the party’s 12th NEC meeting, which was held in Abuja at the Congress Hall of the Transcorp Hilton, the two party officials were elected.
Among those present at the NEC meeting were President Bola Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, members of the Progressive Governors’ Forum, and party chieftain in the National Assembly.
Addressing party leaders after his emergence, Ganduje thanked the President and promised that internal democracy would prevail in the party under his leadership.
Ganduje also pledged to ensure a scientific register of party members and pay utmost attention to election management and conflict resolution.
While promising to hit the ground running to ensure victory for the party in all forthcoming governorship elections across the country, the former governor said there would be a level playing field for all party members during party primaries.
Addressing the 12th NEC of the party, President 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 elections in 2023, in his opinion, were the best ever conducted in Nigeria.
Former President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo were not present at the APC NEC meeting.
However Bisi Akande, the party’s first national chairman, was there. The NEC meeting was held after the APC national caucus on Wednesday.
Recall that two National Working Committee (NWC) members of the party left their positions in the middle of July. Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Senator Iyiola Omisore resigned as the party’s National Chairman and National Secretary, respectively.
