A group of stakeholders within the All Progressives Congress (APC) representing the North Central zone has submitted a letter to the National Working Committee (NWC) urging the resignation of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the party’s national chairman.

The letter, titled “Vote of No Confidence and Request for the Removal of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje from Office as National Chairman of the APC,” was signed by Mohammed Mahmud Saba and obtained by our correspondent on Thursday.


In light of the recent turmoil surrounding Ganduje’s purported suspension, North Central APC members have intensified their calls to “retain” the leadership slot within the party.

The correspondence, copied to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Vice President Kashim Shettima, and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Senator George Akume, highlights a stark contrast with the vote of confidence passed by APC state chairmen in favor of Ganduje on Tuesday.

Mahmud Saba emphasized that unlike the state chairmen’s stance, the North Central populace has expressed a vote of no confidence in Ganduje’s leadership, demanding his immediate resignation.

Saba further argued that Ganduje’s ascendancy to the national chairmanship position contradicted the principles outlined in the APC constitution, as it “betrayed” the North Central region, which was rightfully positioned to retain the office following Senator Abdullahi Adamu’s removal.

Th letter reads in part, “We the North Central APC Concerned Stakeholders have resolved to unanimously agitate for our right and reclaim our mandate which was handed unto us by the National Convention of our great party the APC in 2022.

“Various sections of our constitution have clearly established the procedure of replacing an Executive member at all levels of the party in an event of death, resignation, incapacitation or expulsion from party by any executive member.

“This singular act has impacted negatively on us as a people in the North Central, we feel betrayed and spited because we gave His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR the third highest votes after North West and South West in the country which put us on better position to enjoy the fruit of our labour.

“The North West where Ganduje comes from has the Speaker and Deputy Senate President zoned to them, the North East have Vice president and Deputy National chairman North, but the North Central which has only the SGF appointed from the zone should naturally produce the National Chairman of the party.

“We therefor make the following demands;
That Dr. Umar Ganduje resigns immediately and stop parading himself as the National Chairman of our great party. That the zoning arrangements made by the National Convention in 2022 which zoned the office of the National Chairman to the North Central be respected by the NEC and all other organs of the party.”
