As the Lagos State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) set to join other States in holding nationwide States Congress on Saturday, May 17, a three term former Commissioner for Home Affairs and Culture from Lagos Central (Apapa), Babatunde Alade Balogun is set to takeover as the new State Chairman.
The DailyBells Nigeria exclusively gathered that 67 year-old Balogun was endorsed at the end of a crucial meeting of the Governor’s Advisory Council(GAC) of the Lagos All Progressives Congress (APC) held at the party Secretariat, Acme road, Ogba, Lagos on Thursday evening.
Aside the Chairmanship position, other candidates were also endorsed for the available executive positions in readiness for the Party’s state congress on Saturday May 19, 2018 at the party Secretariat, Acme road, Ogba, Lagos.
Mr. Sunday Akinsanya Ajose, a 72 year-old party stalwart from Lagos West (Badagry) was endorsed as the Deputy Chairman while a former lawmaker who represented Agege Constituency and later a Commissioner for Special Duties,Dr. Wale Ahmed was endorsed as the new Secretary of the party.
The outgoing Scribe, Hon. Hakeem Bamgbola (Itire/Ikate) was upgraded as the Vice Chairman,Lagos Central while Vice Chairman, Lagos West, Chief Olufunsho Ologunde (Ikeja) and his Lagos East counterpart, Alhaji Gaffar are to maintain their seats.
The Women Leader, Chief(Mrs) Kemi Nelson (Ikeja) is going to be replaced by a former House of Representatives member from Lagos Island (Lagos Central), Ms Jumoke Okoya-Thomas.
Interestingly, DailyBells learnt that contrary to the expectation that the entire Ajomale-led executives would be flushed out, most of the other members of the executives may retain their seats as they have only spent a term in office.
The endorsements might have put an end to the ambitions of Senators Tokunbo Afikuyomi and Ganiu Olanrewaju Solomon, Alhaji Mutiu Are, Hon. Oyinloye Danmole and others who have reportedly been jostling to contest for the party’s leadership positions.
