Ex-NYSC director joins APC, says party means well for Nigeria

A former Legal Director of the National Youth Service Corps, Ahmed Ibrahim, has joined the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Ibrahim, who recently retired from public office, was received by the Secretary of Abuja Municipal Area Council, Zakari Babale, and members of the Federal Capital Territory chapter of the party on Thursday in Abuja.

While addressing newsmen, Ibrahim explained that he joined the APC out of conviction that it meant well for Nigerians.

According to him, there was a need for all to support the vision and policies of President Bola Tinubu in moving the nation forward.

He noted that despite the country’s challenges, Tinubu has done well in the areas of security, agriculture, human capital development and social investment.

He said, “In this regard, all hands must be on the deck to support the president in his Renewed Hope Agenda to move the country forward and move it to a greater and enviable height.”

“Let me also say I joined the APC to help sustain it by contributing my quota to national development.”

The event was attended by APC stakeholders from the FCT’s six area councils and some of its chieftains from Edo, Ibrahim’s home state.

After his acceptance speech, Ibrahim was presented with the party’s flag and a broom, which is the symbol of the APC.

“We are convinced that Alhaji Ahmed Ibrahim would help reposition and revive the party ahead of the 2027 general election. Although the FCT APC had its challenges, this is not the time for members to grumble. It is a time to join efforts with the President Bola Tinubu-led administration to build a better society for all.

“This is because the unity and commitment of APC members in ensuring the implementation of Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda is critical to the country’s development. So while opposition political parties are doing everything to pull President Tinubu and the APC down through propaganda, we as members will remain committed.

“I therefore call on the party’s members to remain united in projecting the Federal Government’s policies and programmes in the interest of all,” he said.
