The acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abiola Ajimobi, has called for peace among stakeholders of the party.
The former Governor of Oyo State made this call in a statement released on Wednesday through his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji.
Recall that the National Chairman of the party, Adam Oshiomhole was suspended in a ruling delivered by a three-man panel of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday which upheld the earlier judgement delivered against Oshiomhole by a High Court.
Meanwhile, the SA to the immediate governor of Oyo State has revealed that Senator Ajimobi took over the leadership of the party in 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”
Mr Tunji further stated that the Acting National Chairman will soon meet with the National Executive Council to resolve all contentious issues.
He said, “We should, therefore, let peace continue to reign until we call the NEC meeting and take a position on the way forward”.
Recall that Senator Ajimobi was appointed 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 following the appointment of Otunba Niyi Adebayo as Minister.
The appointment of Ajimobi was, however, condemned by the Ekiti State chapter of the party.
