“With this development and according to the APC constitution, it is now incumbent on my humble self as the deputy chairman (North) to assume the office as the acting national chairman of the APC. And subsequently, also, the Deputy National Secretary, Festus Fuanter, will now assume the office of acting National Secretary,” Mr Kyari said.
Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abubakar Kyari has taken over the leadership of the party on an acting basis following the resignation of the National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu.
Mr Kyari also announced the postponement of the National Executive Council (NEC) earlier scheduled for 19 July.
He said: “With the recent development with the change of leadership, we would like to inform everybody here that the proposed National Caucus meeting slated for 18 July 2023 and the National Executive Council for 19 July 2023 are hereby postponed. This postponement would not be indefinitely, but a new date would be communicated.”
Mr Kyari did not give the reason for the resignation of Mr Adamu, but said it was a voluntary resignation.
