We’ll work with God to arrest insecurity- APC


Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the new national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, said that his leadership would work with God to address the country’s challenges.

Mr Adamu, while formally taking office on Wednesday, said that while those perpetrating terrorism in the country were working with the devil, “we will continue to work with God to arrest the situation.’’

Speaking on Monday’s terrorist attack on the Abuja-Kaduna train service, the senator said the government was paying attention to acts of terrorism. He assured Nigerians that “we are not going to rest until the situation is arrested.”

The new national chairman and newly-elected National Working Committee (NWC) members of APC formally took office in Abuja.

Mr Adamu and the NWC members were elected at the March 26 national convention of the party held in Abuja.

Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State and some critical stakeholders of the APC accompanied Mr Adamu to the party’s national secretariat in Abuja for the ceremony.

Also on the entourage was Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe, who was the chairman of the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC).

Mr Buni, while handing over the party’s affairs to Mr Adamu through a symbolic handover of its flag, said the task ahead was enormous, especially with the approach of the 2023 general elections.
