He said Akume as a seasoned bureaucrat and having served as a two-term governor of Benue State, third -term senator, as well as serving minister, is in a better position to take over the affairs of the party from Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State.

IYA Worldwide scribe, said Senator Akume possesses the top qualities required to be the next chairman of the party. The leadership qualities he would bring with him as chairman of the APC are many and inexhaustible. But there are those that are germane in leading the APC to victory as the party forges ahead.

IYA worldwide maintains that Akume understands the messages encapsulate in the constitution and ideology of the party. He as national chairman knows that his job does not include forming any policy thrust for the party, he would gladly be a liability for this.

He would hardly even be seen ruminating publicly about public policy. Akume would as chairman only be seen echoing the position of the president, who is the leader of the party. This would be a complete departure from the past where party chairmen are in conflict with the president over policy issues.

Akume as the APC chair will deliver to the party the demonstrative mastery of machine politics and proving in the process effective as a fixer-footsoldier to the party.
