Ajimobi is APC acting National Chairman

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress on Tuesday announced its Deputy National Chairman (South) Abiola Ajimobi, a former governor of Oyo State, as its Acting National Chairman.

The party, reacting to the appellate court decision in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary Lanre Issa-Onilu, said: All Progressives Congress (APC) has received the news indicating the Appeal Court has upheld the suspension of the Party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by an FCT High Court pending the determination of the substantive suit.

“Guided by advice from the party’s legal department in line with the provisions of Section 14.2. (iii) of the party’s Constitution, the Deputy National Chairman (South), Sen. Abiola Ajimobi will serve as the Party’s Acting National Chairman.

“According to Section 14.2. (iii) of the APC constitution, the Deputy National Chairman, North/South “Shall act as the National Chairman in the absence of the National Chairman from his zone.”

Ajimobi, whose state of health was reported ‘critical’, had been hospitalised since June 2, 2020, after he was tested positive for COVID-19.

He is presently undergoing treatment at the First Cardiologist and Cardiovascular Consultants Hospital, Lagos, South-West Nigeria.
