The Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abubakar Kyari, has emerged as the party’s National Chairman.
Kyari assumed office today July 17 barely 24 hours after Senator Abdullahi Adamu tendered his resignation as the party’s chairman.
Kyari’s emergence was announced at the party’s National Working Committee meeting held today July 17. Kyari formally announced the resignation of Adamu and Senator Iyiola Omisore as the party’s National Chairman and National Secretary respectively. He further said that in line with the constitution of the party, the Deputy National Secretary, Festus Fuanter, will serve as the acting National Secretary of the APC.
Adamu was absent from the NWC meeting on Monday while Omisore stormed out of the meeting held at the party secretariat in Abuja. Kyari, who represented Borno North Senatorial District in the 9th National Assembly, presided over the APC NWC meeting.
