Ganduje: Protesters storm APC Secretariat, allege plot against Tinubu

Members of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, stormed the Secretariat of the ruling party in Abuja on Monday to register their displeasure with some individuals for allegedly plotting anarchy in the party.

The protesters, led by former Commissioner of Lands and Urban Development, Nasarawa State, Prof Salihu Ahmad Alizaga, alleged that some external forces were behind the recent purported suspension of the National Chairman of the party, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Addressing protesters at the party secretariat, Alizaga said those who want Ganduje removed are interested in unseating President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in 2027.

He said, “We are here to tell the whole world that APC is one united family, devoid of rancor as being erroneously portrayed and speculated by few individuals in Kano State.

“Gentlemen of the press, in the last few weeks the media has been awash with the news of purported suspension, counter suspension and re-resuspension of the national chairman of our party by some individuals who are clearly non-members of the APC, capitalising, on the fickle agitations of a few disgruntled members of the APC who claimed to be from the North Central Zone.

“It could be recalled that the concerned North Central Elders/Stakeholders Forum, led by a former Senate President, Senator Ameh Ebute, Senator Jack Tilley Gyado, Prof Nentawe Yiltwada, amongst others, had recently passed a vote of confidence on the national chairman and pledged their loyalty and commitment to the party’s leadership.

“Surprisingly, when we hear of North Central Zone agitation against our National Chairman, mostly it is being championed by someone from the North East and a pocket of a few people from the North Central Zone.

“We are confident that those who want the National Chairman removed are those who are interested in unseating President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in 2027. We can not sacrifice competence on the altar of mediocrity.”
