The State Publicity Secretaries of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South-west have congratulated Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu (SAN) on his appointment as the South West Coordinator of the Tinubu/Shetima Presidential Campaign Council.

At a meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, the APC image makers resolved to “explore the advantages inherent in unity and cohesion to maximise potential in the interest of the party and its candidates.”

In a statement, yesterday, signed by the Secretary of the Conference of APC Publicity Secretaries in the zone, Alex Kalejaye, the body commended the appointment of Ondo State Governor as the Zonal Director General for the Asiwaju-Shettima Presidential Campaign, and promised to cooperate with the Zonal Director General, and “other stakeholders to ensure overwhelming victory of the party in the South-west in the forthcoming elections.

“We acknowledge the vocal and consistent push for the party to zone the presidency to Southern Nigeria by Akeredolu and all other governors and party leaders from the zone. The appointment of Akeredolu, therefore, does not come to us as a surprise. We see it as strikingly appropriate, and of strategic value,” the statement said.

The spokespersons called for “issue-based campaigns, devoid of fake news and hate speech to enhance peace and harmonious relationship among ethnic leaders and stakeholders across board in the overall interest of Nigeria.”

To steer its affairs, the meeting unanimously endorsed the spokesman for APC in Ogun State, Comrade Tunde Oladunjoye, as the zonal coordinator, while Hon. Alex Kalejaye of Ondo State will serve as the secretary.

The meeting also acknowledged the parental role of the Conference of APC state publicity secretaries (CAPS) and promised to work in one accord with the state publicity secretaries of the party in all other zones of the federation.
