The vacuum created by Bolaji Abdullahi’s defection from the All Progressives Congress, APC to the People’s Democratic Party, PDP has just been filled,with Lanre Issa-Onilu being appointed the new National Publicity Secretary of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Issa-Onilu’s appointment was ratified at the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) in Abuja on Friday.
He ran for the position at the party’s elective convention in June, but lost to Bolaji Abdullahi.
Abdullahi who held the post later resigned from the position and defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) with the loyalists of Senator Bukola Saraki, Nigeria’s Senate President.
Both men however, are from Kwara state.
Yekini Nabena was appointed acting national publicity secretary after Abdullahi resigned on August 1.
Issa-Onilu has worked as journalist for 15 years and is a specialist in strategic public communications planning.
