The National Caucus of the governing party, All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday perfected moves to clear legal hurdles to pave way for the emergence of the immediate past governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, as national chairman of the governing council.
Ganduje’s appointment as national chairman, will be ratified alongside that of spokesperson of the 9th Senate, Senator Ajibola Basiru, as the national secretary today at the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) meeting billed to hold today at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.
It was learnt that at its meeting at the presidential last night, the national caucus of the governing party mandated the party’s leadership to work out modalities to clear all legal hurdles impeding the smooth takeover of the former governor as national chairman today.
According to sources who should know, the caucus chaired by the party’s leader, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, said it is conscious of some legal and constitutional obstacles, which might serve as bottlenecks to the realisation of Ganduje’s leadership.
The caucus was directed to do away with such impediments that might lead to legal action against Ganduje’s leadership.
Ganduje is expected to assume leadership of the party during the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party today if the caucus eventually delivers on the assignment last night.
