The appointment of the immediate past Governor of Kano State, Dr Abdullahi Ganduje, as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress on Thursday has sparked mixed reactions from Nigerians on social media, especially Twitter.
The PUNCH reported on Thursday that Ganduje and the spokesperson for the ninth Senate, Senator Ajibola Basiru, were officially ratified to replace the immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and former National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore.
This development has brought about mixed reactions from people, experts, and other users of Twitter.
Fisayo Soyombo, @fisayosoyombo tweeted, “From being filmed hastily stashing $230,000O under his babanriga in 2018, Abdullahi Ganduje has now emerged the national chairman of Nigeria’s ruling party…”
J a c k , @Jack_ng01 expressed his unbelief. He noted, “Lolz APC has to be the most unserious political party in the history of human existence What!!!!”
Alh_Extension_Officer, @Uncle_wali tweeted “Matawalle and Ganduje are among the bad eggs in Nigerian politics. For an era that defines itself as a beacon of hope, prides itself with intellectualism as the key ingredient that will fuel its jet. But later reward their likes, means a transmission of all talks no actions.”
Meanwhile, Dr. D. Udoh @Udoh_D noted, “So they decided to make Ganduje the National Chairman of APC (a position that doesn’t require security screening and Senate screening). How thoughtful & smart of Tinubu. Only a man with a sinister mindset …
However, David Offor @DavidsOffor in a tweet emphasised party loyalty of Ganduje. He tweeted, “You can say anything you like about the APC National Chairman,Abdullahi Ganduje, but you can never doubt his loyalty to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s vision and plans!! He was all over the place with PBAT pre primary, primary and campaign periods! And yes, this is a political position and glad it is given to a core party man.”
Boss Mustapha, @__yellows, praised President Bola Tinubu, stating that he values loyalty. He tweeted, “When we told them Tinubu isn’t like their master that doesn’t value loyalty and treats his subordinates like slaves, they thought we were kidding.
He furthered by congratulating Ganduje on his appointment. “Tinubu rewards loyalty and he does it a hundred fold. Congratulations Baba Ganduje, the new APC National Chairman. Ganduje 3 – 0 Kano State Obi.” the party loyalist tweeted.
