Former Edo State Governor, John Oyegun has emerged as the national chairman of Nigeria’s opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC). Mr Oyegun was elected Friday during the party’s first national convention.
Messrs Sam Jaja and Timipire Sylva, who were also in the race for the position both stepped down, thus paving the way for Oyegun’s victory.
Other officers who also emerged through the same process were Deputy Chairman, South, Segun Adebayo Oni; Deputy Chairman, North, Lawal Shuaibu; National Secretary, Alhaji Mai Mala Goni and National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.
Meanwhile, the APC will hold another convention in November to elect its presidential candidate.
