Abdullahi Abbas, former Acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kano, has been elected Chairman, with 14 others emerging as new state leaders of the party.
The emergence of the new leadership came after the Kano APC delegates conducted a consensus Congress into 15 vacant positions of the party at the Indoor Hall of the Sani Abacha Stadium.
The new Kano APC Executives were sworn in by the Attorney-General of the state shortly after the results were announced.
Nwafor Orzu, Chairman of the Kano Congress while announcing the results said, “Abdullahi Abbas scored 2,800 to emerge the chairman after some 2,813 delegates cast their votes in accordance with the APC Congress’ Guidelines.”
The election was witnessed by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje who signed the swearing note alongside the newly elected Chairman, said the poll was meant for 15 vacant positions that needed to be filled.
“This is not a general party congress but an election to replace key positions that were vacant for sometimes now and we give glory to God for giving us the opportunity to conduct it peacefully without any problem.”
“I assured you (party members) that APC will continue to remain united in Kano because we are committed to blocking any leakage that may likely create a problem for us.”
