The United Kingdom chapter of the All Progressives Congress has announced its members have been appointed to be part of the campaign for the re-election of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu in Ondo state.
This was disclosed in a press statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party in the country, Hon. Jacob Ogunseye. He disclosed that its leader, Prince Ade Omole and 5 others were part of the committee. The Original message read thus:
As our great party, the All Progressives Congress braces up for the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Edo and Ondo state, the National Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) had earlier appointed some of our senior members and leaders including Lagos state governor, Gov Babajide Sanwo-Olu to lead the campaign team that will work towards the re-election of Arakunrin Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN, in Ondo state.
I am pleased to inform you that the committee (CECPC) also appointed six of our members in the United Kingdom to serve on the campaign council.
The members of the council from the All Progressives Congress United Kingdom chapter include our leader, Prince Ade Omole; Barr. J K Adebola; High Chief Chris Onumonu; Prof Ali Alao; Dr Mustapha Abdullahi and Ms Jamila Mohammed.
The latest appointment by our great party is in tandem with the appointments in 2019. During the last general elections in Nigeria (Feb 2019), the party appointed five members of APC UK namely Prince Ade Omole, Hon Jacob Ogunseye, Dr Badeji Lee, Dr Mustapha Abdullahi and Hon Felix Ajayi into the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) in recognition of our hard work, support, loyalty to party and country, financial clout, importance and social media presence. We reach over a million Nigerians daily (home and abroad) on all our social media handles especially through our verified twitter and face book pages. We also kick-started the 2019 election campaigns with a hugely successful House of Lords event attended by VVIPs from Nigeria.
The inauguration of the committee comprising members of the Ondo State Campaign Council held on Saturday, 15th August, 2020 at the NEC Hall of the Party National Secretariat, Abuja, Nigeria.
Three of the six members from APC UK who were in Abuja, Nigeria (Prof Ali Alao; Dr Mustapha Abdullahi and Ms Jamila Mohammed) attended the inauguration. Video and pictures below.
Please join me in wishing the six (6) appointees success in this noble assignment.
