Members of the All Progressives Congress have begun to jostle for the position of the suspended Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Babachir Lawal, at the National Working Committee of the party, Punch has reported.
 
Before he was appointed the SGF, Lawal was the National Vice Chairman (North- East) of the APC, a position that has been vacant since then.
 
Saturday PUNCH gathered in Abuja on Friday that the delay in holding the inaugural bi-annual APC National convention is affecting plans to hold the ward and zonal congresses from where the new National Vice Chairman is expected to emerge before it is ratified by the National Convention.
 
For now , three persons namely: Alhaji Usman Iya -Abbas, Umar Sani (Sanda ) and the pioneer APC National Vice Chairman, North- West , Umar Duhu, are leading the park of contenders.
 
Of the three, Duhu is said to be making a strong case for a comeback having stepped aside in favour of Lawal, as part of the APC merger agreement.
 
Duhu who hails from Adamawa State , is considered a loyalist of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who is a chieftain of the APC. He hails from the same constituency with former Political Adviser to ex -President Goodluck Jonathan , Ahmed Gulak , as well as a former Adamawa State Acting Governor , James Ngilari.
