Dr. Richard Montgomery, the British High Commissioner to Nigeria, paid Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a visit yesterday at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.
Montgomery made a statement during the visit, saying he was there to congratulate Ganduje on taking on the role of party helmsman.
Additionally, he said his country is very interested in the governorship elections in the states of Imo, Kogi, and Bayelsa on November 11.
He said, “Of topical concern are the off-season elections in the three states. We are watching closely to see how the process will be carried on.”
He also described the APC as a national party “helping to shape the politics of Nigeria”, adding that the legal issues regarding elections in Nigeria including reclaiming of mandates at the courts were part of the democratic process.
In his remarks, Ganduje said, “If a political party is not well-structured, democracy will be affected. We are looking forward to stronger ties.”
He said democracy is about good governance, stressing that the APC represents a strong democratic institution that is the hope for all Nigerians.
