The Forum of All Progressives Congress Organizing Secretaries, APC-FORS, comprising all the Zonal, State, Local Government and Ward Organizing Secretaries of the party, has eulogised the National Working Committee led by Senator Abdullahi Adamu, for revitalizing the party.
The Chairman of the Forum, Dr. Blessing Agbomhere, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja, said “the sleepless nights, hard work and selfless service of the current leadership of the party is yielding result.
According to Mr Agbomhere, these leadership traits have rekindled hope, faith and commitment in the party membership, hence the interest of all Nigerians in the affairs of the party.
The statement said: “The level of interest in the party, where we have several presidential aspirants contesting freely, women and special persons getting nomination forms for free, and youths being encouraged to run, is not a manifestation of miracle, but the deliberate and concerted efforts of the new leadership of the party to develop the politics of our Nation.
Mr Agbomhere noted that the Forum which has the National Organizing Secretary of the party as Patron was birthed by the six Zonal Organizing Secretaries of the party in an effort to bring together all Organizing Secretaries of the APC from the six geo-political zones of the country for the purpose of promoting the course, interest, unity and activities of the party at various levels.
According to the South-South Zonal Organizing Secretary, “the creation of the Forum was necessitated by the rising need to build formidable structures across the various levels of our party in the country by engaging the Nigerian voters with the achievements of the All Progressives Congress/Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Mr Agbomhere added that the “Forum is driven by the collective willpower to ensure that the Party never loses any election at the National, Zonal, State, Local Government Area and Ward levels.”
He emphasised that the offices of the Organizing Secretaries of APC at various levels, “like a river which receives rain from the sky, draw their strength from the Office of the National Organizing Secretary headed by His Excellency, Suleiman Muhammad Argungu”.
He explained that, “the Office of the National Organizing Secretary is enabled by Article 14 sub 14(i) of the All Progressives Congress Constitution (2014 As Amended) to initiate programmes for the mobilisation of party members, devise appropriate strategies for elections and coordinate all field activities for the Party”.
He added that, “Article 15B of the APC Constitution further infers that the Zonal, State, Local Government Area and Ward Organizing Secretaries shall have the same functions as the National Organizing Secretary at their respective levels.”
Mr Agbomhere said: “Committing to the spirit of the APC Constitution, it becomes imperative that all the Organizing Secretaries work as a league under the guardianship and mentorship of the National Organizing Secretary for cross-pollination of strategies, swift implementation of programmes and efficient assessment of party field activities from ‘TOP-TO-BOTTOM,’ to make the APC a darling of all Nigerians.
Mr Agbomhere further said, “the Forum is developing innovative ideas and creative strategic engagements to promote APC’s Achievements in the Zonal level to the Ward level to strengthen the party in all the Zones, and reposition it for victory in 2023”.
