APC national legal adviser El-Marzuq resigns

The National Legal Adviser of All Progressives Congress, APC, Ahmed El-Marzuq, has resigned from his position in the National Working Committee, NWC, of the ruling party.

El-Marzuq, an ally of the former National Chairman of APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, stepped down on Wednesday for a smooth reconfiguration of the party’s leadership.

His Special Adviser, AbdulHalim Adamu, in a statement attributed his resignation to the emergence of ex-governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje and Ajibola Basiru as APC National Chairman and National Secretary respectively.

“In light of the recent developments within our great party, the All Progressives Congress, with the emergence of His Excellency Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Senator Ajibola Basiru as National Chairman and National Secretary and the reconfiguration of party offices for national cohesion and adequate regional representation, the National Legal Adviser found it pertinent that he resigns his position within the party to allow for a smooth reconfiguration of the party’s leadership”, the statement read in part.

El-Marzuq thanked President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other party officials for the opportunity to serve.

Credible News recalls that Ganduje and Basiru emerged as NWC members of the party on Thursday at the 12th National Executive Committee meeting of the APC in Abuja.

The APC has been battling an internal crisis for weeks. Mid-July, two members of the party’s NWC resigned. Senator Abdullahi Adamu and Senator Iyiola Omisore resigned as the party’s National Chairman and National Secretary respectively.

Credible News reports that his resignation was the fourth after the exit of Adamu, Lukman and the immediate past National Secretary of the party, Senator Iyiola Omisore.
