After several months with an acting chairman, the Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has elected Idris Shuaibu as its substantive chairman.
The new chairman is an attorney and was previously the state legal adviser for the party.
After being approved by the party’s state executive council, Shuaibu was sworn into office on Thursday night.
Raymond Chidama, the party’s state secretary, had previously explained that the executive committee of the party in the Adamawa Northern Zone had nominated Shuaibu for the position. Chidama said the zone had argued that because Ibrahim Bilal, the party’s immediate past chairman, was from the zone, someone from the zone should take Bilal’s place.
A letter naming Idris Shuaibu was read aloud by the party scribe during an emergency meeting held at the APC State Secretariat in Yola, and the members of the state executive council present unanimously approved the nomination, making Shusibu the new chairman.
After the procedure, Samaila Tadawus, the former acting state chairman, resumed his role as vice chairman.
The new chairman stated during his acceptance speech that one of his first priorities would be to bring together disgruntled APC members.
