The former Kogi governor’s posters were also seen on walls and fences of structures around the APC national secretariat along Blantyre Street, Wuse 2, Abuja.

The bold picture was adorned with the inscription “APC Next Level. Alhaji Yahaya Bello as APC National Chairman. Leading the Change, Building a Stronger APC,” Leadership newspaper reported.

Move to unseat Ganduje

The move is said to be a plot by some APC politicians from the North Central zone to regain the party chairmanship from Ganduje, who is from the North-West.

Sources said the plot to unseat Ganduje is organised by those within the APC and outside the ruling party.

Ganduje was elected at the August 3, 2023, National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party to replace Abdullahi Adamu, who resigned from office.
