The immediate past secretary of the All Progressives Congress in Nasarawa State, Aliyu Bello, has been appointed and ratified as the chairman.
According to The PUNCH, Bello made the disclosure while speaking with journalists at the party’s secretariat in Lafia on Tuesday.
The decision of the party leaders followed the appointment of the immediate-past APC Chairman, John Mamman, as a Commissioner and member of the State Executive Council.
Bello said “This development of course also necessitated my having to vacate my seat as the state party secretary, which I occupied for years and am now taken over by an experienced retired civil servant and also a politician of great worth, in the person of Mr Yairus G. Dagusa.
“I appreciate the leader of the party in the state, His Excellency Abdullahi Sule, the members of the State Executive Council, and the entire members of the APC for the confidence reposed in me.
“I intend to follow in the footsteps of my predecessors by ensuring teamwork and synergy among officials of the party at all levels. I promise to deploy and utilise all my many years of experience in party politics to sustain and boost the popularity of the APC, particularly in Nasarawa State and the country in general. I shall not falter or disappoint you.”
