Ahead of the National Convention of the All Progressives Congress APC, the Forum of Third Republic House of Representatives Members in the party has endorsed the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume for the National Chairman of the APC.

At a news briefing in Abuja, the forum said as former federal lawmakers and statutory delegates for the convention, they will ensure the emergence of Senator Akume as the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

The Chairman of the Forum, Alhaji Isa Matori, explained that the decision of the former Federal lawmakers to support the Minister was because of his unifying factor and loyalty to the party.

Alhaji Matori said Senator Akume, being a committed founding member of the APC had sacrificed a lot to ensure the victory of All Progressives Congress in all elections.

The forum however pledged to abide by any decision of the party as loyal members of the APC for the progress and development of the party.
