The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC)’s National Executive Committee (NEC) has elected former Kano Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as the new National Chairman of the party.
Senator Ajibola Basiru was also elected as the National Secretary of the APC.
Acting National Chairman, Senator Abubakar Kiyari, announced the NEC decision to newsmen shortly after the executive session of the committee.
Kiyari also said that in line with Article 13(2), NEC transferred its powers to NWC to fill other vacant positions in the administrative organ of the party.
Barrister Mustapha Abubakar later administered the oath of allegiance on the two leaders.
