Ganduje, Basiru will lead APC to path of stability, says Omo-Agege


Ovie Omo-Agege, a former deputy president of the senate, says Abdullahi Ganduje, former Kano governor, and Ajibola Basiru, former senate spokesperson, will lead the All Progressives Congress (APC) to a path of stability.


On Thursday, the national executive committee (NEC) of the APC elected Ganduje as the party’s national chairman, while Basiru was elected as the national secretary.


In a congratulatory statement signed by Sunday Areh, media adviser to Omo-Agege, the former deputy senate president described the election as the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle on a productive and progressive team Nigeria needs to return to the path of growth.


Omo-Agege, who was the governorship candidate of the APC in Delta state in the last election, said Ganduje and Basiru will key into the “success of the bold reform agenda of President Bola Tinubu and the buy-in of the national assembly”.


He added that the new APC national officers have the task of ensuring that federal lawmakers and party members endorse and support Tinubu in his bid to chart a fresh course for the economy.


“Just as Nigerians rightly put their faith in President Tinubu to right the ship of state, the emergence of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Senator Ajibola Basiru as national chairman and secretary respectively of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is the final piece in the jigsaw puzzle on a productive and progressive team Nigeria needs to return to the path of growth”, Omo-Agege said.


“Ganduje’s broad national outlook and dispassionate perception of issues made him have the remarkable record of being the first and only governor to win a second term in Kano state. He is an achiever.


 “As for Senator Basiru, I worked closely with him in the 9th session of the national assembly where he was the senate spokesman. He is very diligent and straightforward.


“With both of them running the APC, the path to a stable polity is now assured. When the party is in trusted hands and there is a robust and cordial relationship between the legislature and the executive branch, the reform agenda of President Tinubu will be successful.”


In his acceptance speech, Ganduje said his focus is to promote unity and carry out reforms in the party.
