The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the nomination of former Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as the party’s Deputy National Chairman (South).
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu, announced this in a statement on Wednesday, March 4, 2020.
He further explained that the party’s NWC gave the approval following Ajimobi’s nomination from the zone.
Senator Ajimobi’s emergence as the APC Deputy National Chairman comes more than one year after he lost his bid to return to the Senate in the February 23 polls.
Meanwhile, the APC leadership has approved the nomination of Paul Chukwuma as the APC National Auditor and Waziri Bulama as the party’s acting National Secretary.
Lanre added that the decision was reached during the meeting of the NWC held on January 14, 2020 at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
The APC spokesman noted that the party had given notice for a replacement from the zone, following the resignation of Mr Mai Mala Buni as the APC National Secretary in May 2019 prior to his election as the Governor of Yobe State.
