APC holds mini convention to pick new spokesman

01 December 2016, 11:36

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress, (APC) will on Thursday name a new National Publicity Secretary for the party.

The new spokesperson of the party would be elected  during a mini convention of the party, reports Punch.

The mini-convention was specifically convened for the purpose of electing a new spokesman for the party.

The convention is expected to hold at the New Chelsea Hotel, Abuja at 11am.

It was gathered that a former Sports Minister, Bolaji Abdullahi, from Kwara State, is being tipped for the job.

The position became vacant following the appointment Lia Mohammed as Minister of Information more than a year ago.

Leadership reports that only delegates from the six states of North-Central zone are expected at the emergency convention

Attempts by the suspended Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Timi Frank, to assume the position in acting capacity were rebuffed by the National Working Committee (NWC) based on the zoning arrangement for the party positions.
