APC spokesman is a low standard for ruling party, says Ashaolu


APC leader, Adams Oshiomole

Spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kwara State, Tunde Ashaolu, has described the National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, as a depreciation of the standards that should be associated with a ruling party.

In a statement in Ilorin, Ashaolu stated that Nabena represents a new low for the APC, highlighting the fact that the spokesman does not have the necessary educational or political qualifications to hold such a position and that “this is why he continues to embarrass his party.”

He said: “People who know Nabena understand that he does not have the necessary pedigree, experience or qualifications to hold such a crucial position. What are his professional and political antecedents? Who knew him before he became the acting Publicity Secretary?


“This man continues to embarrass the APC and himself through his juvenile press statements and tweets.

I mean, for those of us who have been at this level, even at the state level, we know that it takes a certain degree of level and clear headedness to perform effectively as a party spokesman.

“When compared with people who have held these position as spokespersons of political parties in Nigeria like Chief Bola Ige, who was publicity secretary of Action Group (AG) in the First Republic, Chief MCK Ajuluchukwu, who served in that capacity for the Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) in the Second Republic, Prof. David Iornem and Dr. Doyin Okupe, who played the roles in the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and National Replublican Convention (NRC) in the aborted Third Republic, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, who is the immediate past Publicity secretary of APC and his opposite in the PDP, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, to mention a few, where will this Nabena fit in?”.
