Buhari names Victor Giadom APC acting chairman
President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated that Victor Giadom is the authentic acting national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
A majority of the party's National Working Committee (NWC) ratified the appointment of former Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi, who's also the party's deputy national chairman (South), as its acting national chairman.
Due to Ajimobi's current hospitalisation with the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Hilliard Etta, the party's vice-chairman (South-South), was appointed to act on his behalf.
However, Giadom declared himself the acting national chairman, claiming that he was entitled to take over from Oshiomhole because a court had granted such a request in March 2020.
Despite the opposition of a majority of the party's NWC against Giadom's claim, Buhari announced on Wednesday, June 24 that the position of the law favours the deputy national secretary.
