The Deputy National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (South), Senator Abiola Ajimobi, has called on all stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress to allow peace to reign in the party on Tuesday night after the APC NWC named him acting National Chairman.
He was named the acting national chairman following an Court of Appeal ruling upholding the suspension of the substantive Chairman, Adams Oshiomole.
Ajimobi’s call was contained in a statement signed by his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji, and made available to newsmen in Abuja, on Wednesday.
“Senator Ajimobi took over the leadership of the party in line with Section 14 subsection 3 of the APC constitution that states that, “the Deputy National Chairman shall act as the National Chairman in the absence of the National Chairman from his zone”.
Furthermore, the acting national chairman as declare that a meeting of the National Executive Council will hold very soon to resolve all contentious issues.
“We should therefore let peace continue to reign until we call the NEC meeting and take a position on the way forward.” Ajimobi stated
Senator Ajimobi took over as the Deputy National Chairman in March 2020 when the NWC wrote a letter to the South-West to nominate a candidate for the vacant position of the Deputy National Chairman (South) after the position became vacant with the appointment of Otunba Niyi Adebayo as a minister.
