Edo Governorship: APC names primary election, appeal committees

NEWS DIGEST – The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday affirmed Senator Abiola Ajimobi as the Party’s Acting National Chairman.

This comes on the heels of an Appeal Court’s ruling affirming the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as National Chairman and in line with Section 14.2 (iii) of the Party’s Constitution.

Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu the National Publicity Secretary of the APC who disclosed this development also stated that due to Sen. Ajimobi’s unavoidable absence, the NWC unanimously appointed the Party’s National Vice Chairman (South-South), Prince Hilliard Etta to act on Sen. Ajimobi’s behalf.

According to the APC spokesman, this action was backed by the Party’s constitution which empowers the NWC to appoint one of its members in an acting capacity and stipulates that the acting National chairman must be from the zone of the National Chairman.

Also, committees for the Party’s Edo State Governorship Primary Election scheduled for Monday 22nd June 2020, and Election Appeal scheduled for Wednesday 24th June 2020 were also named by the party.

Those chosen include:

PRIMARY ELECTION COMMITTEE
1. GOVERNOR OF IMO STATE, SEN. HOPE UZODINMA – CHAIRMAN
2. SEN. AJIBOLA BASHIRU – SECRETARY
3. ALH. ABDULLAHI ABASS
4. HON. IBRAHIM SABO
5. HON. OCHO OBIOMA
6. HAJIA AMINA LANTANA MUHAMMED
7. HON. GBENGA ELEGBELEYE

2. DR. KAYODE AJULO – SECRETARY
3. HON. UMAR AHMED
4. NASIRU IBRAHIM JUNJU
5. HON. RASAQ MAHMUD BAMU

The party also noted the recent ruling of a High Court which declared Hon. Igo Aguma as the Party’s acting chairman in Rivers State. In compliance with the court ruling, our party has recognised Aguma as Rivers State acting Chairman pending when new congresses will be held to elect party executive members at the ward, local government, and state levels.

Sixteen members of the NWC attended the meeting held at the Party’s National Secretariat (13 members attended physically and three others joined the meeting online).
