Abubakar Kyari becomes acting APC chair, Fuanter named acting secretary

BY Dyepkazah Shibayan


Abubakar Kyari, deputy national chairman (north) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has assumed office as acting chairman of the governing party.

Also, Festus Fuanter, deputy national secretary of the party, has assumed office as the acting national secretary.

The decision to appoint the duo followed an emergency meeting of the party’s national working committee (NWC) in the wake of the resignation of Abdullahi Adamu as chairman of the party.

The decision was premised on the party’s constitution.


Addressing reporters at the APC national secretariat in Abuja after the meeting that lasted for more than three hours, Kyari said Adamu and Omisore resigned “voluntarily”.

“The NWC wishes to inform you of the resignation of senator Abdullahi Adamu CON and that of the national secretary, senator Iyiola Omisore CON,” the former senator said.

“With this development, and according to the constitution of the APC, it is now incumbent on my humble self, senator Abba Kyari, as the deputy national chairman (north), to assume as acting chairman of the APC.


“Also, the deputy national secretary, Barrister Festus Fuanter, will now assume the office of the acting national secretary of the APC.”
