The Speaker of the 9th Kaduna State House of Assembly, Rt Honourable Yusuf Ibrahim Zailani has congratulated Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on his emergence as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Zailani in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ibrahim Dahiru Danfulani, yesterday, described Ganduje’s emergence as a testimony to the tremendous respect that he enjoys across the polity for his integrity, experience and leadership capacity.
“I heartily congratulate His Excellency, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, on his emergence as the National Chairman of the APC from the just concluded National Executive Council Meeting of our great party.
“I share this common belief in his suitability for piloting the affairs of our great party APC, from this very important juncture.
“Ganduje’s antecedents as a political leader and astute administrator, shows that our party has made a great choice in his emergence as our National Chairman.
“That is unavoidable, given the status of the APC in the Nigerian polity and the warm place it has occupied in the hearts of Nigerians since its formation and assumption of national governance,” Zailani said.
Zailani also commended the NEC Members for their sacrifices, cooperation and abiding love for the party, which he said, provided the environment and impetus for the attainment of consensus in the leadership selection process at the meeting.
“Posterity will recognise their great sacrifices.
“I also thank President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other leaders of our great party whose exemplary leadership and wise counsels led to the success of the transition,” he added.
The former Speaker further wished the new chairman and other members in his team success in discharging their responsibilities.
