The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, yesterday vowed to protect the mandate of the party in Nasarawa State.

Ganduje made the vow when he spook at a grand reception organised in honour of the Nasarawa State’s Chairman of APC, Hon. Aliyu Bello, in Lafia, stressing that the party won the March 18, 2023, governorship election in the state.

According to the APC’s national chairman, who was represented at the event by the National Vice Chairman of APC for North-central Zone, Mr. Muazu Rijau, “the party would protect its mandate in Nasarawa State.”

Ganduje said: “We have won the election, and we shall protect our mandate. There is no doubt about it. Nasarawa State belongs to APC, and APC belongs to Nasarawa State. We are in charge, and we will continue to be in charge by the grace of God.”

This was just as the Nasarawa State Governor, Mr. Abdullahi Sule, his immediate predecessor, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura and the lawmaker representing Nasarawa West at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly, Senator Ahmed Aliyu Wadada, eulogised the leadership qualities of Hon. Aliyu Bello.

Governor Sule said that Bello is a politician that is capable of providing the necessary leadership for the APC to facilitate his administration to translate its vision into reality for the state.

According to the governor, “Nasarawa State only began to witness genuine development in 2011 after the coming of the defunct Congress Progressives Change (CPC), which later metamorphosed into the APC.

“The real development that started in Nasarawa State did not start until 2011. It was at the time we started to see resemblance to some kinds of development in education, development in health, development in infrastructure, development in roads. 

In a goodwill message, the immediate past governor of the state, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, said that considering Aliyu Bello’s trajectory and pedigree, Nasarawa State could not have a better APC’s chairman at this time.

Al-Makura called on members of the party to cooperate and support the state chairman, even as he used the opportunity to call on people to shun rumour mongering and acts capable of causing disunity within the party.

For Senator Ahmed Aliyu Wadada, the APC state chairman symbolises leadership, because leadership is about service and loyalty.
