A political pressure group, APC Association of Ex- Councillors and Political Appointees in Nigeria, has concluded plans to unveil the right persons to occupy the leadership positions at the 10th National Assembly.
The decision was reached after a meeting of the Association held on the16th May 2023 at Wuse II Abuja.
A statement signed by the National Co-ordinator, Hon. Yusuf Dabo, to newsmen says the group resolved after careful consideration of the position of the All Peoples Congress on the Leadership of the the fourth coming 10th Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, to support a Selfless and Upright Senator for the Senate Presidency.
“Accordingly, We do hereby declare that in few days to come, the great Group will announce the candidates at a World Press Conference to be held next week in Abuja. We shall endorse the Next Senate President of the 10th Senate of the federal republic of Nigeria with the support of the ruling party, Political stakeholders and party members”, the statement added.
Dabo explained that, “As you may be aware, the members of the Association are drawn from the 774 local Governments in Nigeria. We are indeed one of the recognized pioneer Pro- APC Support Groups from 2015 to date. We are a formidable one with all LGA Political Appointees both past and present with its Headquarters in Abuja”.
“Our leadership is made up of Loyal APC Men and Women of tested quality. Moreso, our group’s operations and activities are backed by the laws of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”, Dabo remarked.
The race for the Leadership positions is seriously being contested ahead of the inauguration of the tenth National Assembly next month in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
