APC Denies Reports of Abdullahi Ganduje's Appointment as National Chairman
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has debunked rumors of Abdullahi Ganduje's appointment as the party's new national chairman. The APC spokesperson in the state clarified that the reports were false and mere speculation. He further stated that the party would address the issue of vacant positions in due course.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Oyo State has cleared the air regarding the appointment of former Kano state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje as the party's new national chairman. The party's spokesperson, Mr. Wasiu Olawale Sadare, dismissed the reports as false and mere speculation in a conversation with Legit.ng on Wednesday, August 2nd.

Sadare emphasized that it was important not to dwell on unfounded rumors and assured that the party's leadership would address the issue of vacant positions at the appropriate time. He stated, "For now, every piece of information about a new national chairman for the APC is a rumor, and I would like to refrain from dwelling on mere speculation. When it's time, the party would work around the issue, and from there, we would know the next thing."

While the scramble for key positions within the APC's National Working Committee (NWC) intensifies, rivalries among major party stalwarts continue to rise. Some individuals are lobbying for vacant positions, while others are being considered as the preferred choice.

Responding to these dynamics, Sadare emphasized that the APC is a democratic institution where internal wrangling is a normal occurrence. He stated, "APC is a democratic institution where eerie silence is not expected at a time like this. It is the ruling party, and when you consider the population of stakeholders and their diverse interests, you would understand that what you call internal wrangling within its fold is a normal phenomenon."

However, Sadare also highlighted the party's ability to handle such matters, affirming that the APC possesses the necessary machinery and mechanisms to manage any crisis. He added, "I can assure you that the party has potent machinery and mechanisms with which it can manage the so-called crisis, and the relevant stakeholders are up to the task. As every crisis raises its ugly head, it would be tackled headlong, and the party would become stronger for it."

Amidst discussions about vacant positions, calls have emerged for the former governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Ganduje, to be appointed as the next national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress. These requests followed the exclusion of Ganduje from President Bola Ahmed Tinubu's recently released 28-man ministerial list on Thursday, July 27.

In response to the ongoing developments, the Coalition of North-Central APC Youth Leaders commended Ganduje as a loyal party man and stated that his experience could be instrumental in steering the party forward.

The recent change in leadership within the APC's National Working Committee saw Senator Abubakar Kyari assume the position of deputy national chairman (north) of the ruling party. This confirms the earlier reported resignation of the former national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

The APC in Oyo State remains focused on addressing the issue of vacant positions while debunking reports about Abdullahi Ganduje's alleged appointment as the party's new national chairman.
