The All Progressives Congress (APC) is in the final stages of creating a National Institute of Progressive Study.
Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the National Party Chairman of the APC, revealed this significant development.
He said the institute is poised to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of Nigerian politics.
Ganduje, while making the announcement, outlined the institute’s primary objectives.
He stated that the National Institute of Progressive Study aims to serve as a platform for channelling and integrating progressive-minded politicians into the core values, principles, and practices of progressive political ideology.
“The institute,” Ganduje said, “will facilitate the channelling and integrating of the nation’s progressive-minded politicians into the substance, orientation, and practice of progressive ideology and political best practices.”
The former governor of Kano state expressed confidence that the institute’s graduates would have a transformative impact on Nigeria’s political landscape.
“We will ensure that with the kind of graduates our National Institute will be producing from time to time, the Nigerian political space will be populated by truly progressive-minded politicians,” he affirmed.
Experts say the establishment of the National Institute of Progressive Study signifies a strategic move by the APC to consolidate its position as a significant political force in Nigeria.
By equipping aspiring and existing politicians with a firm grounding in progressive ideology and political best practices, the party aims to shape the direction of Nigerian politics for years to come.
