A Councillor from Gwale local government area of Kano State, Hon Abdulwahab A Abdul Shi, has died in a fatal accident on his way to the All Progressives Congress (APC) convention currently holding today in Abuja. The Councillor was said to have died along with two of his aides who were traveling with him as their vehicle caught fire in the course of the accident.
The National Convention of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to elect a new set of leaders is holding at Eagle Square in Abuja today.
A former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole, is already guaranteed a chance to emerge as the next national chairman of the party after all contenders to the office stepped down for him.
However, other key offices such as those of the National Secretary, Deputy National Chairmen, National Publicity Secretary and others are to be keenly contested for by several APC members.
