APC Crisis: North Central Stakeholders Convene in Lafia to Address Discontent

Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from the North Central region, including Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, governors, past governors, senators, and other key figures, are scheduled to gather in Lafia, Nasarawa State, on Saturday to tackle the ongoing crisis within the party.

Prominent attendees expected at the meeting include governors from Kwara, Kogi, Benue, Nasarawa, and Niger States.

The primary agenda of the meeting is to address the discontent within the North Central zone following the reassignment of the APC National Chairman position. This reassignment, which saw the chairmanship move from the North Central to Kano State in the North West last year, has left many stakeholders in the region feeling marginalized.

The stakeholders aim to formulate a unified stance to present to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu regarding the chairmanship issue. Governor Abdulfatai Abdulrazak of Kwara State is expected to lead the meeting.

Recent protests at the APC National Secretariat against the leadership of current APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje, have underscored the depth of discontent within the party ranks.

The outcome of the Lafia meeting is anticipated to play a significant role in shaping the future trajectory of the APC, particularly in the North Central region. The resolution reached at the meeting will be presented to President Tinubu, who is awaiting reports from various zones before making decisions on the party’s direction.

According to a party source, the President has maintained a stance of observation, preferring to gather input from different zones before taking decisive action. The resolution from the North Central meeting will thus carry considerable weight in influencing the party’s path forward.
