Al-Makura, Ganduje Battle For APC Chairmanship



Senator Tanko Al-Makura and Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governors of Kano and Nasarawa states, respectively, are the only candidates left in the race to become the national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

If nothing unexpected changes at the last minute, President Bola Tinubu may have chosen Dr. Ganduje to serve as National Chairman, according to information obtained by Objectv Media from stakeholders in the North Central.

According to reports, some APC leaders are fighting against Ganduje on the grounds that the North West, where he is from, already has the Speaker, House of Representatives, and Deputy Senate President offices filled.

There were earlier rumours that Al-Makura might succeed Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the party’s former national chairman, in the national secretariat.

However, it emerged later in the day that Ganduje’s name may have been dropped from Tinubu’s list of ministerial nominees, ostensibly to pave the way for him to become the national chairman.

Speaking on the development, a reliable party source said: “President Tinubu has settled for the former Kano state governor, Ganduje, to replace Senator Adamu as the party’s national chairman.

“The President had listed Ganduje as one of the nominees for ministerial appointments but, because of his trust and confidence in the former governor, President Tinubu had to change his mind and asked three state governors to persuade Ganduje into accepting the new assignment.”
