The Inter-party Advisory Committee (IPAC) in Nigeria has undergone a leadership shift as Yusuf Mamman Dantalle, the National Chairman of the Allied People’s Movement (APM), secured the position of chairman in the recent National Executive Committee (NEC) election. Overseen by Chief Dan Nwanyanwu, the electoral committee chairman, this election saw Dantalle triumph over Yabagi Sani of the Action Democratic Party (ADP), the incumbent Chairman.

Dantalle clinched victory with ten votes in a closely contested election, surpassing Sani’s eight votes, while one vote was invalidated. Hon. Dipo Olayoku of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) became the Deputy National Chairman without opposition.

The newly elected committee includes Martins Egbeola as National Organizing Secretary, Maxwell Magbuden as National Secretary, Obed Agu as National Legal Adviser, Mariam Babel as National Treasurer, and Ibrahim Suleiman as National Financial Secretary.

Grateful for the trust bestowed upon him, Dantalle thanked IPAC members and pledged to adhere to the council’s rules, emphasizing inclusivity by planning to establish a women’s affairs department to enhance women’s involvement in politics. He also outlined plans to register IPAC with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) in the initial three months of his tenure.

Former Chairman Sani gracefully congratulated Dantalle, stressing the significance of democracy and displaying maturity in the election process. He expressed optimism about IPAC’s growth under Dantalle’s leadership, hoping for a positive trajectory for the committee.
