South West APC caucus denies endorsing Ajimobi as Deputy National Chairman
The South-west Caucus of the All Progressives Congress (APC), yesterday, denied endorsing former governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, as the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party.
The caucus said that the information that the South-west Caucus approved the appointment of Ajimobi at the recent Osogbo meeting of the APC leadership was misleading.
According to a statement by the Zonal Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr Karounwi Oladapo, which was made available to newsmen in Ado Ekiti, nothing like that happened during the said meeting.
“How can the leadership caucus in Abuja ratify a non-existent endorsement and approval as claimed by the Tribune publication?
“As the zonal publicity secretary statutorily responsible for dissemination of news and information from the Zonal Caucus, I did not issue any statement after the Osogbo meeting because I was not authorised to so do.
“Where then did Tribune obtain his information? We expect Tribune to take seriously any matter that can put its integrity into question.
“Once again, I will like to reiterate the statement of the National Vice Chairman South-west and the Chairman of the South-west Zonal Caucus, Pastor Bankole Oluwajana, that the party never approved nor endorsed any candidate at its Osogbo meeting and that the APC National leadership would resolve who among Senator Gbenga Aluko and Senator Abiola Ajimobi would occupy the vacant seat at the appropriate time,” he said.
