APGA appoints Obi as national leader, BOT chairman

Former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi

Committee set up to review party’s constitution

The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, has appointed the governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as its national leader and Chairman of its Board of Trustees, BOT.

The National Vice-Chairman of the party, South-West Zone, Tayo Sowumi, announced the appointment while briefing journalists after the National Executive Council meeting of the party in Awka on Saturday.

He said the appointment followed an earlier recommendation by the National Working Committee of the party in Abuja.

“The motion was unanimously taken by all members of NEC present at the meeting. The council equally approved the appointment of 30 persons as members of the BOT who were nominated from the six geo-political zones of the country,” he said.

He, however, said the appointment of the former Minister of Health, Tim Menakaya, was stood down following objections raised by members at the meeting.

Mr. Sowumi said a committee was set up to review the party’s constitution while the list of the members for the review was approved by the NEC.

“The BOT chairman and secretary were also approved as members of the NEC. Members of the National Assembly who are members of APGA were approved as members of the National Executive Council of APGA,” he disclosed.

He said the next convention of the party was tentatively fixed for February 15.
