JUST IN: APC NWC AFFIRMS AJIMOBI AS ACTING NATIONAL CHAIRMAN

APC

The National Working Committee, NWC of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress, APC has affirmed Sen. Abiola Ajimobi as the Party’s Acting National Chairman after a meeting at the Party’s National Secretariat on Wednesday.

This follows the Appeal Court’s ruling sustaining the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman and in line with the Party’s Constitution.

A statement signed by Lanre Issa-Onilu National Publicity Secretary APC, however, disclosed that due to Ajimobi’s unavoidable absence, NWC unanimously appointed the Party’s National Vice Chairman (South South), Prince Hilliard Etta to act on Sen. Ajimobi’s behalf.

The statement explained that the action is backed by the Party’s constitution which empowers the NWC to appoint one of its members in acting capacity someone who must be from the zone of the National Chairman.
