The Commissioner of Health in Zamfara state, Lawali Liman, on Saturday emerged the new chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in the state at the party’s state congress.
The national chairman of the party’s state congress, Umar Dambo, said Mr Liman emerged as a consensus candidate following agreement reached by party leaders.
Mr Liman served as the chairman of Kaura-Namoda Local Government Council, before he was reassigned by Gov. Abdulaziz Yari as a commissioner in the state’s executive council.
He had in the last two years served as the state Commissioner of Rural and Community Development, before he was recently redeployed to the Ministry of Health as Commissioner, a position he held until his election by consensus as the APC Chairman in the state. (NAN)
