The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has appointed the Chairman of the Southern Governors’ Forum and Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, as the Zonal Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council in the Southwest.
Tinubu said that Akeredolu was picked owing to his impressive political achievements and the exemplary leadership he had demonstrated as Governor of his state and as a party member over the years.
He noted that the governor would be responsible for the coordination of his campaign activities within the region, to ensure that the party had smooth engagement across the Southwest states.
The APC presidential candidate informed the governor through a letter written to the governor and made public on Monday in Akure, the Ondo State capital.
According to the letter, “By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as the Zonal Campaign Cordinator (South West) of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
“This appointment is fitting and appropriate given your impressive political achievement and the exemplary leadership you have demonstrated as governor of your state and as a party member.
“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility as we conduct an effective, message-driven campaign leading us to victory in the 2023 presidential election.”
The appointment was revealed barely 24 hours after the APC presidential candidate’s appointment of the Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello, as the youth coordinator was made public
