The body also congratulated Ondo State Governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, on his appointment as the South West Coordinator for the Tinubu/Shetima Presidential Campaign Council.

At a meeting in Abeokuta, Ogun State capital, on Wednesday, the APC image makers advocated for “issue-based campaigns, devoid of fake news and hate speech, to enhance peace and harmonious relationship among ethnic leaders and stakeholders across board in the overall interest of Nigeria.”

In a statement by the Secretary of the Conference of APC Publicity Secretaries in South West Zone, Alex Kalejaye, the body resolved to “explore the advantages inherent in unity and cohesion, to maximize potentials in the interest of the party and its candidates.”

It promised to cooperate with Governor Akeredolu and “other stakeholders to ensure overwhelming victory of the party in the South West in the forthcoming elections”

 “We acknowledge the vocal and consistent push for the party to zone the presidency to southern Nigeria by Arakunrin Akeredolu and all other governors and party leaders from the zone. The appointment of Akeredolu, therefore, does not come to us as a surprise. We see it as strikingly appropriate, and of strategic values,” the statement added.

To steer its affairs, the meeting unanimously endorsed the spokesman for APC in Ogun State, Tunde Oladunjoye as the Zonal Coordinator, while Kalejaye of Ondo State will serve as the Secretary.
