New APC National Chairman, Ganduje To Hold First NWC Meeting On Tuesday

Must read

The new National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, is slated to chair his first National Working Committee (NWC) meeting on Tuesday, 8th August 2023.

According to a party source who pleaded anonymity, disclosed that members of the NWC will be holding a meeting on Tuesday at the APC headquarters in Abuja.

It will be Ganduje’s first official assignment to officiate the meeting.

Recall that the former Kano State governor and the Spokesperson for the ninth Senate, Senator Ajibola Basiru, were elected at the APC 12th National Executive Committee (NEC) Caucus meeting in Abuja on Thursday as the party’s national chairman and national secretary, respectively.

The duo replaced the former chairman and secretary, Abdullahi Adamu, and Iyiola Omisore, who resigned due to an internal—party crisis.

However, giving more details about the upcoming NWC meeting, the PDP chieftain, who pleaded anonymity, told The Punch, “We are having an NWC meeting on Tuesday. It will be Ganduje’s first official meeting.


“I am sure it is an effort on his part to get familiar with the committee members in a more relaxed atmosphere following the stress of the NEC meeting that approved his appointment. Basiru has also promised to make himself available for the meeting.”

Responding to what the agenda of the meeting will be, the source said the gathering would look into appointing officers for the vacant positions in the NWC.

Recount that the APC national women leader, Betta Edu, is part of President Bola Tinubu’s ministerial nominees. At the same time, the party’s northwest vice chairman, Salihu Lukman, had also resigned last month.
