Tunde Balogun emerges Lagos APC chairman
Alhaji Tunde Balogun has emerged the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos.
The Chairman of the APC Congress Committee in the state, Senator Uche Ekwuenife, had earlier said there would be no voting during the exercise.
Thus, the new executives were picked, on Saturday, based on affirmation by the delegates.
Meanwhile, Alhaji Haddi Ametuo has emerged as the factional chairman of the party in Kogi State, at the APC parallel Congress held at Felele area of Lokoja, the state capital.
The faction is believed to have the backing of the Audu/Faleke APC Political Organization, while Alhaji Ibrahim Ahovi, the Acting Chairman of the party in the state, was supported by the state governor, Yahaya Bello.
The Congress produced a secretary and 25 other state executive members.
The Director-General of Media and Publicity to the Governor, Kingsley Fanwo, has however said that Ametuo and his “co-travellers” have committed a “political treason.”
Fanwo, in a statement in Lokoja, described the group as a “shameless fraud that had no regard for the APC constitution.”
