APC Appoints Bisi Akande As Interim National Chairman

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has appointed Bisi Akande as the interim chairman of the new merger party.

Addressing a news conference at the end of a closed door meeting in Abuja, the former governor of Borno State, Ali Modu Sheriff said the appointment is part of the requirement for the registration of the new party.

He said the appointment of Mr Akande is a consensus decision among the merging parties.

The National Secretary of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Tijani Tumsa was appointed interim national secretary.

The meeting was held at the Lagos state governors lodge and attended by governors and chieftains of major political parties.

The meeting was held behind closed door for over three hours. The governors dismissed reports of disagreement among members of the opposition, insisting that significant progress has been made towards the realisation of the merger.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had directed the merging parties to put in place a national executive as part of the registration procedure. Now that this has been done, it expected to give energy to the fight by the opposition to wrestle power from the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

    I thought the APC, as a reformist party in an incredibly corrupt Nigeria, should have asked all potential office holders to publish the sources of their wealth or income. When men and women with skeletons in the cupboard occupy high offices, the fight against corruption has already been lost.
