The former governor of Oyo State, and the Deputy National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (South), Senator Abiola Ajimobi has accepted to serve in acting capacity.
The former governor who is presently recuperating at a Lagos Hospital urged all stakeholders to close ranks in moving the party forward.
His Special Adviser, on Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji stated this in the aftermath of the Appeal Court judgement that affirmed Oshiomole’s suspension as APC National Chairman.
The National Working Committee of APC in a statement on Tuesday ordered Senator Ajimobi to take over Chairmanship in acting capacity.
The NWC maintained the development was 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”.
According to a Statement by the Spokesman to the Acting National Chairman, a meeting of the National Executive Council (NEC), would be called 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”, he said.
It would be recalled that Senator Ajimobi took over as the Deputy National Chairman in March 2020 when the NWC wrote a letter to the Southwest to nominate a candidate for the vacant position of the Deputy National Chairman (South) when the position became vacant with the appointment of Otunba Niyi Adebayo as Minister.
The appointment of Senator Ajimobi received the support of five of the Six South West states of Oyo, Ondo, Osun, Ogun and Lagos with Ekiti alone protesting the nomination. This was however not enough to stop the nomination as Ajimobi had majority of the states in the zone supporting his nomination.
Ajimobi’s appointment into the NWC was further affirmed by a Federal High Court.
