Chairmen of the ruling All Progressives Congress in the 36 states of the federation and Abuja on Tuesday joined the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party to pass a vote of confidence on the APC National Chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduja.

The chairmen, who paid a solidarity visit on Ganduje at the APC National Headquarters said members of the party were saddened by the travails of the national chairmen.

Lagos State Chairman of the party, Pastor Collineus Ojelabi stated that the chairmen felt that the attacks on the chairman were unwarranted and undeserving more so as those behind the actin were not members of the ruling party.

He called for severe sanctions on the perpetrators of the attacks and commended the party for petitioning against the judge to the National Judicial Commission (NJC) saying that the political space must be spared from such crisis.

Responding, the National Chairman Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje blamed the Kano State Government for sponsoring the rebellion in the hope of undermining the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“We were really not surprised about what is happening in Kano. It shows the opposition parties feel threatened by the growing might of the ruling party. Kano government is behind the drama which is comparable to African magic. It is not helpful to democracy and the APC cannot be distracted. Our attention be distracted because we are very focused.”

APC National Secretary, Dr. Bashir Ajibokla, while giving a vote of thanks, told tbe gathering that the NWC members were equally behind the national chairman and would not allow anything to happen to him.
