Senator Abubakar Kyari Steps in as Acting National Chair of APC Following Adamu’s Resignation

Senator Abubakar Kyari, Deputy National Chairman (North) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has become the party’s acting National Chairman following the resignation of Senator Abdullahi Adamu. This aligns with the party’s constitution, which stipulates that in the event of a national chairman’s resignation, the deputy national chairman from the corresponding zone assumes the position in an acting capacity.

Kyari is currently leading a meeting with several members of the National Working Committee (NWC) at the APC’s national secretariat in Abuja.

Born on January 15, 1960, in Borno State, Kyari, the son of late Brigadier Abba Kyari, a former military administrator of North Central, holds a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Tennessee Martin and an MBA from Webster University St. Louis Missouri, USA.

Kyari served as a member of the House of Representatives under the now-defunct United Nigeria Congress Party (UNCP) in 1998, and again on the platform of the defunct All Peoples Party (APP) from 1999 to 2003. He also held the position of Commissioner in Borno State from 2003 to 2005 and 2007 to 2011. He was elected Senator representing Borno North on the APC platform in 2015 and re-elected in 2019, holding the position until his appointment as Deputy National Chairman in 2022.
