THE All Progressives Congress (APC) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), on Saturday, conducted an elective state congress through voice votes, as party chieftains considered it to be peaceful and successful.
The party officials returned unopposed during the congress were Honourable Abdulmalik Usman as Chairman; Honourable Musa Ibrahim Jatu as Deputy Chairman; as well as Honourable Hashimu Yakubu Shuaibu as Secretary and Honourable Felix Udozie as Vice Chairman1.
Others include Honourable Patrick Ogunyimi as Vice Chairman 11, Honourable Shuaibu Sabo Suleiman as Vice Chairman 111; Honourable Mohamed Adamu as Assistant Secretary; Prince Umar Bayero as Treasurer; Honourable Nasiru Oludemi as Financial Secretary; Honourable Hail-Mary Aipoh as Women Leader; as well as Honourable Emmanuel Sheneni as Youth Leader and Engineer Adaji Usman as party Organising Secretary.
Despite that there was a pocket of dissenting voices from the Yoruba community who opposed the adoption of Alhaji Nasiru Oludemi for the position of Financial Secretary of the party, the exercise still went on smoothly.

Addressing newsmen after the congress, the party’s Organising Secretary, Engineer Adaji Usman, commended loyal party members for achieving the feat, describing the FCT APC congress as one of the most peaceful throughout the country, calling on other political parties to learn from the FCT congress of the party.
According to him, “this is one of the most peaceful congress organised by the party. It can’t be better anywhere than what we have all witnessed in the Federal Capital Territory. I challenged other political parties including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to emulate what we have done today.”
While reacting to the dissenting voices by the Yoruba community, Engineer Usman said: “you cannot get it 100 percent in a gathering of divergent opinions, but the most important thing is that the Congress was successful.”
