APC Chairman presents Ajumobi to Buhari as deputy chair (South)
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, was at the State House on Friday to officially present the new National Deputy Chairman (South), Abiola Ajimobi, to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Oshiomhole, who spoke to State House correspondents after the meeting with the President, said the event was formality as the president was very much familiar with Ajimobi since he was governor of Oyo State for eight years.
Oshiomhole said Buhari described Ajimobi as a `complete gentleman’, and was delighted to receive him.
“I came essentially to present the former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi whom the South West has nominated to fill the void arising from the vacancy of the Deputy National Chairman, South, created by the appointment of the Minister of Industry, Trade and Investment.
“Of course, Mr President already knows him, he hosted us a couple of times when he was governor of Oyo State and played a pioneering role in the formation of the All Progressives Congress (APC), obviously, he is not a stranger to the President, it’s just a way of formality that I have to present him.
“Mr President was delighted that someone with his background – a complete gentleman, he has been in the oil industry, a senator and a two-term governor.
“So, he will bring on board a wealth of experience that will help to reinforce the quality of leadership of the All Progressives Congress,” he said.
