APC Chair: Saraki, Dogara, Okorocha to Attend Oshiomhole’s Declaration





Senate President Bukola Saraki and House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara are among top members of the All Progressives Party (APC) expected at  the declaration of former Governor of Edo, Adams Oshiomhole, for the national chairmanship of the party in Abuja Thursday.

Disclosing this to newsmen on Wednesday, Oshiomhole, also said that Imo Governor Rochas Okorocha would lead governors elected on the party’s platform to the declaration which would hold at Transcorp Hilton.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the former governor is favoured to replace chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, after he received the endorsement of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Oshiomhole said he was joining the chairmanship race to contribute to the growth of the party.

According to him, it is true that I intend to make my ambition known to our party members and Nigerians.

“I strongly believe that with the experience I have gathered in my public life, having served as President of NLC, governor of Edo, I have what it takes to take our dear party, the ruling party, to the next level.”
