Members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) have visited former President Muhammadu Buhari at his residence in Daura, Katsina State.
The APC National Chairman, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, led the NWC members on a courtesy visit to the immediate past president.
The visit was, according to Ganduje, to show solidarity with the former President and to congratulate him on Nigeria’s 63rd Independence Day.
Apart from paying homage, the visit was to introduce the newly reconstituted NWC of the ruling party to Buhari, Ganduje added.
Ganduje who expressed excitement with the winning degree recorded by the party in recent tribunal rulings believes the APC will also win the upcoming governorship elections in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo states.
He said: “We are here in Daura to mainly pay homage to the former President, Muhammadu Buhari, and to introduce to him the newly reconstituted National Working Committee of our great party.
“It’s to also show our solidarity and thank him for what he did for the country in the period of eight years and congratulate him for the Independence celebration.
“We are happy with the tribunal rulings where our party is leading across the country.
“Of course, seeing is believing but that’s not enough. We have off-season elections coming up in Kogi, Bayelsa, and Imo states and we will also win in Sha Allah.”
The former Kano State governor also paid homage to the 92-year-old Emir of Daura, HRH Umar Umar, at his palace and thereafter proceeded to the APC local government office where he met with party members and officials.

November 11: Ganduje Attends Bayelsa Campaign Council Inauguration
In preparation for the November governorship election, the APC National Chairman stormed Bayelsa State ahead of the inauguration of the party’s campaign council.
Naija News reports that the APC national chairman, who arrived in Bayelsa on Friday, was received by the party’s governorship candidate in the state, Chief Timipre Sylva, his running mate, Great Joshua Maciver, and other stalwarts of the party.
It would be recalled, that earlier in the month, Ganduje had similarly inaugurated the party’s campaign council for the November 11 governorship election in Imo State.
The APC national chairman, on that occasion, had appealed to Imo people to support Gov. Hope Uzodinma’s reelection bid to consummate the development trajectory.
