Northern States Governors’ Forum has applauded the emergence of their erstwhile colleague, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as the new National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
A statement issued on Thursday by the Forum’s Chairman and Gombe State Governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya, said Ganduje’s election not only underscored the trust and confidence fellow party stakeholders and members have in him, but reflects his exceptional leadership abilities.
The statement also hailed the election of former Senate spokesman, Senator Ajibola Basiru, as the National Secretary of the party.
He reminded Ganduje that his distinguished tenure as the governor of Kano State demonstrated his commitment to the welfare of the people and the development of the APC, and the nation.
“As the newly elected national chairman, you hold a critical position in steering our great party towards a united and prosperous future.
“Your experience and strategic vision will be vital in addressing the challenges ahead and harnessing the collective strength of the APC to bring about positive change for all Nigerians.
“We are confident that under your able guidance, the party will chart a course of progress, inclusivity, and good governance that will resonate with citizens across the country in line with President Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope’ mantra,” the statement noted.
He praised the leadership direction and guidance of President Tinubu, which he said facilitated the smooth conduct of the caucus and NEC meetings that produced the new helmsmen of the APC.
