Bolaji Abdullahi Re-Elected as APC National Publicity Secretary
The National Convention of the All Progressives Congress has re-elected Mr Bolaji Abdullahi as the party’s National Publicity Secretary.
Abdullahi defeated Abubakar Sidiq Usman to retain his position.
He polled a total of 2002 votes to defeat Abdul Sidiq, his closest opponent who garnered 243 votes.
With over 1700 votes, Emma Ibediro, preferred candidate of Rochas Okorocha, displaced Osita Izunaso, national organising secretary of the ruling party.
Ebijiro and Izunaso belong to different factions of the APC in Imo. Members of these factions clashed publicly on Saturday.
Speaking before announcing the results, Badaru Abubakar, governor of Jigawa and chairman of the convention, said despite “some skirmishes”, the process went well.
