He said that the situation must change for the better.

He said the Zonal Co-ordinators would be in charge of the Six Geo-Political Zones of the Country.

Ganduje named Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo as the Co-ordinator for the South-East, while Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara was the Co-ordinator for the North-Central, and Governor Mai Mala Buni the Co-ordinator for North-East.

He also named Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna State as the North-West Co-ordinator, while Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu would serve as South-West Co-ordinator and Governor Bassey Otu of Cross River as the South-South Co-ordinator.

Ganduje said the Governors were expected to initiate periodic Interface with the Party’s Leadership.

“They should liase with the Party to commence immediate process of genuine reconciliation of aggrieved Members in the Geo-Political Zones.

“Mobilise Governors of the Zones to effectively and physically participate in the Party’s activities in the Zones, consult with Governor’s and resolve Issues that will further enhance its progress and unity.

“They are to also assists the Party on Resource Mobilisation in serving the Party and participate in any other activity that may be assigned by the Party,” he said.

“We want to change the narrative, we want our Political Party to be active throughout the year, therefore, all our Offices must be physically operational, all our Offices must be functionally operational.

“Right from the Local Government to State Level, there must be activities throughout, but this cannot happen by chance,” he said.

Responding, Uzodimma, also the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF), expressed delight and commended the Party’s Leadership for the Initiative.

“We are very delighted and happy that the Party in its wisdom, introduced this new Policy of proper co-ordination, we at the PGF has a Membership of 20 Governors which means 20 States currently being governed by APC.

“We have to start from there to ensure an inclusive participation of all our Party Members, and to take this participation to the Grassroots, I think that is the wisdom behind this Inauguration,” Uzodimma said.
