The Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu and a former governor of Ekiti State, Adeniyi Adebayo, have been appointed chairmen of the All Progressives Congress (APC) committees for the South West Zone in support of the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu’s ambition.

The national vice-chairman, South-West Zone of the party, Isaac Kekemeke, who made the announcement after the party’s zonal meeting held in Ibadan on Wednesday, said while Akeredolu chairs the SW Special Committee on Eminent Persons’ Engagement, Chief Pius Akinyelure co-chairs the SW APC Advisory Committee with former Governor Adeniyi Adebayo.

He listed other members of the Akeredolu-led committee as Sen. Iyiola Omisore, APC National Secretary, Mrs Olubunmi Oriniowo, National Ex-Officio Member (South-West) and himself.

Other members of the committee include Mrs Yetunde Adesanya, Zonal Woman Leader and all the six state chairmen of the party in the South West.

He said the two committees were constituted to ensure that what happened to late Chief Obafemi Awolowo and late Chief MKO Abiola were not repeated.

“This is a lifetime chance to produce the president of Nigeria and we cannot afford to play with it as a party.

“As people in charge of managing the party in the zone, it has become a passion for us to deliver impressively to the APC,” he said

“If the best, most experienced man with antecedents is from your zone, why won’t you be proud of him and tell your people to love themselves,” he said.
