NWC confirms Ajimobi, Bulama, Chukwuma as new national officers


The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has confirmed the nomination of three new national officers.

Arch. Waziri Bulama was appointed as the Party’s Acting National Secretary. He replaces Mai Mala Buni, who is now the Governor of Yobe State.

Former Oyo governor Abiola Ajimobi has also been appointed as deputy national chairman (south). He replaces Adeniyi Adebayo, who is now the minister for industries.

Mr. Paul Chukwuma is the new National Auditor.

The decisions were contained in a press statement in Abuja on Wednesday night by the party’s national Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.

According to the statement, the decision to appoint the national officers was reached on January 14, 2020 during the meeting of the NWC at the party’s National Secretariat.

The office of the national Secretary became vacant following the resignation of Alhaji Mai Mala Buni in May 2019 prior to his election as the Governor of Yobe State.

The party subsequently gave notice for a replacement from the zone.
