APC National Convention: North Central Group Pushes for National Chairmanship


A group under the aegis of North Central Democracy Monitor has called on the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to zone the position of National Chairman of the party to the North Central.

The group is also drumming up support for the Chairman, Senate Services Committee, Senator Sani Musa, APC, Niger East for the position of National Chairman of the party.

The Coordinator of the NCDM, Mr. Tanko Suleiman, said in a statement on Friday that Senator is the ideal replacement for Governor Mai Mala Buni- led Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee to put the APC on the solid platform to retain its dominance of the nation’s politics.

Suleiman rejected moves by four Governors from North Central oppose plans to zone the strategic position to the North Central.

They said that the purported plan to stop the APC from zoning the National Chairmanship position to the North Central was nothing order that “the wild imagination of a fringe, obscure group.”

The group said, “a report making the rounds in the social media claims that Governors Abdullahi Sule, Nasarawa; Yahaya Bello, Kogi; Simon Lalong, Plateau and Abubakar Sani Bello, Niger have met with Chief of Staff to the President Thursday to challenge the zoning of the seat to North Central.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the entire northern interest is in support of zoning the chairmanship seat to the North Central and that position is non-negotiable.

“Those floating these lies are people desperate on the perpetuation of individuals who lack the capacity and necessary political will to instill internal democracy in the APC.

“The Youth, a significant component of the APC family is committed to the chairmanship of Mohammed Sani Musa who is a tested and trusted democrat and a fundamental link between generations.

“We re-instate our strong support for Senator Musa who is one of the remaining few northern politicians with proven integrity, honesty and experience.”
