Nigeria‘ll overcome its challenges soon, says Ganduje

Ganduje APC chairman

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, says Nigeria will soon overcome its challenges, going by recent developments.

Ganduje said this when he received the Concerned North Central APC Stakeholders and Elders Forum in Abuja.

“There is no doubt that there is opposition, but we believe that with your cooperation, we will not continue to listen to undesirable elements who are not focused.

“Who are not real party men and want to see us in disarray? We have no place for that; we are people, politicians who are committed.

“We know we are forging ahead with these assaults on Mr President and these assaults on Nigerians, and we believe we will soon be out of these problems.

“We have to thank the president for his renewed Hope Agenda, efforts, and commitment, and we assure him that we are 100 per cent for him,” he said.

Earlier, Sen. Ameh Ebute, a former President of the Senate who led the delegation, said that the visit was to express appreciation to Ganduje for his leadership style.

He said the visit was also to encourage him to continue to do more for the APC as its national chairman.

“Indeed, we have counted among us grassroots and eminent leaders of communities and associations that are passionately APC in their political leanings and identities.

“We are from communities in Benue, Plateau, Kogi, Niger, Nasarawa, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), and Kwara,” he said.

Ebute said the forum was not unaware of some moves by some individuals in the North Central, calling for the shifting of the APC national chairmanship to the zone.

“While we acknowledge the efforts of these advocates for returning the chairman’s office to North Central.

“We, however, believe that the more compelling reason for anybody to advance is the manner of person that will occupy the office of the national chairman of our party.

“It should be about consideration for a track record of performance as shown in winning political contests against the opposition.

“Equally important is how the rank and file members of the party are directly benefiting from the activities of the party across the country,” he said.

He said that Ganduje was not just a performing national chairman, but a chairman who had done well in the shortest possible time.

“Ganduje has positively impacted individual members of the APC, while the party recorded impressive electoral strides bereft of rancour under his leadership.

“By these considerations, we hereby declare our unalloyed support for you to continue to manage the affairs of our great party,” he said.

He expressed happiness that the party’s membership register had been digitalized in alignment with global best practices.

“This is a first in the political history of our great country. This translates to mean that while the opposition was busy doing nothing.

“You put your hand to the plough and got busy working and thinking for the party,” Ebute said, adding that Ganduje was blazing a new trail in ideological politics in the country’s political annals.

He added that with the Progressive Institute that Ganduje was structuring, APC members could boastfully tell opposition parties that they were not the same.

“Thanks to you. Your Excellency, our party is not only ideologically driven; it has a school where we impart knowledge and groom leadership for our members.

“You have done very well, and for that reason, you have our undiluted support,” Ebute said. (NAN)
