APC: New Agitations To Return Chairmanship To North Central As Yahaya Bello Posters Surface

In a swift move, former Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello, who recently handed over to his successor, Usman Ododo, has unleashed a barrage of posters at the All Progressives Congress (APC) national secretariat, signaling his intent to vie for the position of the national chairman. This development comes merely 72 hours after Bello’s formal exit from the Kogi State governorship.

The incumbent national chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, hails from the North West geopolitical zone. However, a surge of posters in the party’s Abuja headquarters suggests a brewing challenge to the status quo.

Investigations by the Nigerian Tribune reveal that certain APC chieftains from the North Central zone have been advocating for a shift in the party’s leadership to their region. This push is fueled by the argument that Ganduje’s predecessor, former Nasarawa State Governor Senator Abdullahi Adamu, hailed from the North Central zone, and it is time to restore balance.

Salihu Lukman, a former National Vice Chairman from the North West, who resigned on the eve of Ganduje’s emergence, has been vocal about his belief that Ganduje’s ascent to the position contradicted the zoning arrangement within the APC. Lukman’s earlier resignation, coupled with the influx of Bello’s posters, sets the stage for potential internal party dynamics leading up to the APC’s next national chairman election.

The emergence of Yahaya Bello’s posters amplifies the underlying tensions within the party, as APC members await further developments in what promises to be a pivotal moment for the party’s leadership structure.
