Ganduje promises APC victory in Imo, Kogi, Bayelsa gov polls

The new National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, has said he will hit the ground running to ensure the victory of the ruling party in the November 11, 2023 governorship polls in Imo, Kogi and Bayelsa.

 

Ganduje said this on Thursday during his acceptance speech as the party’s chair after his emergence at the 12th APC National Executive Committee meeting held at the Congress Hall of Transcorp Hilton in Abuja.

 

The party’s NEC also elected former Senate spokesman, Ajibola Basiru, from Osun State as its National Secretary.

 

Addressing party leaders after his emergence, Ganduje thanked President Bola Tinubu and promised that internal democracy would prevail in the party during his tenure.

 

Ganduje pledged to ensure a scientific register of party members and pay utmost attention to election management and conflict resolution.

 

According to him, there would be level playing field for all party members during party primaries.

 

Ganduje also promised to hit the ground running to ensure victory for the party in the three forthcoming off-season governorship elections in Kogi, Imo and Bayelsa.

 

Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi are three of the eight states with off-season governorship elections due to past litigations and court judgements. Others are Anambra, Edo, Ekiti, Osun and Ondo.

 

For the November 11, 2023 governorship poll in Kogi, the APC is fielding a former Auditor General of Local Government in the state, Usman Ododo.

 

In Bayelsa, the party is fielding the immediate past Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, while incumbent Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma, is throwing his hat into the ring for a second term in office.
