Engr. Umar Abdullahi Umar, son of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje has assured President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the party leadership he would not abuse the trust bestowed on him.

Three weeks ago, President Bola Tinubu named Ganduje’s son Executive Director, Technical Services of the Rural Electrification Agency (REA).

Speaking when party supporters and well wishers in Kano organised a reception over the appointment, Ganduje said as someone with background in engineering, his input in the agency will be felt soon.

He said, “As you are all aware, when this appointment was announced I was out of the country in Ghana alongside the party National Chairman on an assignment that has to do with party matters.
