The All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a decisive step to bolster its leadership by appointing seven new members to the National Working Committee (NWC). This move aims to both fill vacant positions within the Committee and ensure equitable representation across the party’s different zones.

Following the NWC meeting held at the National Secretariat on Wednesday evening, APC National Secretary Ajibola Basiru conducted a media briefing to unveil the newly appointed officials and provide details about the reallocations.

Presided over by the APC National Chairman, Umaru Abdulahi Ganduje, former Governor of Kano State, the NWC meeting marked a significant juncture for the party’s internal dynamics.

Two notable changes in the NWC include the replacement of former National Deputy Chairman, North, Abubakar Kyari, with Ali Dalori, the APC State Chairman in Borno State. Additionally, Mary Alile Idele from Edo State has taken over the role of National Women Leader, a position previously held by Betta Edu. Both Edu and Kyari had been appointed as ministers by President Bola Tinubu in the new federal cabinet.

The appointments extended beyond these changes, with the following roles being assigned to new individuals:

  1. Deputy National Chairman, North (North East Zone) – Hon. Ali Bukar Dalori (Borno State)
  2. National Vice Chairman, North West (North West Zone) – Hon. Garba Datti Muhammad (Kaduna State)
  3. National Legal Adviser (North Central Zone) – Prof. Abdul Karim Abubakar Kana (Nasarawa State)
  4. National Welfare Secretary (South East Zone) – Hon. Donatus Nwankpa (Abia State)
  5. National Women Leader (South South Zone) – Mary Alile Idele, PhD (Edo State)
  6. Deputy National Publicity Secretary (North Central Zone) – Duro Meseko (Kogi State)
  7. Zonal Organising Secretary (North Central Zone) – Ikani Shuaibu Okolo (Kogi State)

All appointments took immediate effect, signifying a swift implementation of the party’s new leadership structure. With the inclusion of these new NWC members, the APC leadership composition now encompasses representatives from all zones across the nation. This strategic move aims to uphold principles of fairness, equity, and harmony within the party structure, eliminating potential friction and ensuring inclusive governance.
