Victor Giadom, acting national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), has handed over the leadership of the party to Mai Mala Buni, chairman of the caretaker committee.
The handing over ceremony took place at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Monday.
Assuring the committee of support, Giadom prayed to God to give Buni, who is the governor of Yobe, the wisdom to manage the affairs of the party.
“I Chief Honourable Victor Giadom the outgoing acting national chairman, today Monday 29th of June 2020 hands over to the chairman and members of the national caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress,” he said.
“I assure the committee of my readiness to partner with them to achieve the party goals and objectives towards a successful national convention.
“I pray that the almighty God grants you wisdom to pilot the affairs of the party.”
The national working committee (NWC) of the party was dissolved on Thursday following a leadership crisis.
The court of appeal had upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party.
While the late Abiola Ajimobi, former Oyo governor, was named acting chairman, Giadom said he had taken over.
President Muhammadu Buhari eventually recognised Gaidom as the acting chairman of the party.
