The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has appointed Victor Giadom as the acting National Secretary.
The former National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, is the Governor-elect of Yobe State.
A statement by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said Giadom from Rivers State would act pending when Yobe State nominates a replacement.
Before the appointment, Giadom was the Party’s Deputy National Secretary
In another statement, the NWC congratulated the Governor of Kebbi State, H.E. Abubakar Bagudu on his election as the new Chairman of Progressives Governors’ Forum.
“Bagudu’s unanimous election is well deserved. We note Bagudu’s achievements in the agricultural sector, particularly rice production in Kebbi State which is in line with the diversification agenda of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration.
“In line with the PGF’s Objectives of promoting good governance, ensuring developmental synergy across APC States and promoting the social democratic programmes of the APC, we are confident that under Bagudu’s leadership, the PGF will continue to contribute to the growth of our great party, promote our progressive ideals and support the President Buhari administration to continue to deliver on the promises made to the Nigerian people,” the statement said.
