Stakeholders in the North Central Region Call for the Appointment of an APC National Chairman

Posted by

After Senator Abdullahi Adamu’s resignation, the North Central Zone lost its status as national chairman. A group named Concerned Stakeholders in the All Progressives Congress (APC) has urged President Bola Tinubu and the NEC of the APC to restore the post.

Mohammed Saidu Etsu, a former candidate for the APC national chairmanship, addressed the gathering yesterday at a news conference, and he urged that the party chairman’s seat remain in the North, where the job was micro-zoned.

They were adamant that the party take into account the president’s popularity in the zone while deciding whether or not to restore North Central to the presidency.

The group’s demand arrives as Abdullahi Ganduje, the national chairman of the APC and a former governor of Kano State, fights against efforts to have him suspended from office in his ward. The geopolitical zone encompassing Kano State is the North West.

The president received 1,760,993 votes in the recent general election, which is 41.3% of the votes cast in North Central. He narrowly defeated his closest opponent in the zone by 345, 436 votes, according to Etsu, who spoke at the conference yesterday. All six states in the zone—including the FCT—gave the president the necessary 25% of the vote, and he also won by a wide majority in Niger, Kogi, Kwara, and Benue.

According to the results, the zone ranked third in the country for the president, behind only the South West and North West. Taking all of this into consideration, the All Progressives Congress must not abandon a trusted ally, the North Central.
