Former Speaker, Victor Olabimtan, heads Akeredolu’s campaign organisation

Former Speaker of the Ondo State House of Assembly, Honourable Victor Adekanye Olabimtan, has been appointed the Director General, Akeredolu Campaign Organisation.

Olabimtan, one of the 24 aspirants who battled for the governorship ticket at the All Progressives Congress (APC) primary, held on September 3, 2016, in Akure, is a former commissioner in the Federal Civil Service Commission.

His rising political profile started with his contributions as the secretary of the defunct Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) Students’ Vanguard which brought him to limelight.

The appointment is with immediate effect and will henceforth take charge of Akeredolu’s electioneering campaign activities.

According to a statement signed by Aketi Media Group, the campaign organisation also named the party chairman in the state, Dr Isaac Kekemeke and Senator Tayo Alasoadura as members of the Governor’s Council, the apex body of the organisation, which will be chaired by the governorship candidate.

Other members of the council included Senator Ayo Akinyelure, Alhaji Jamiu Ekungba, Dr Tunji Abayomi and Mr Boye Oyewunmi, all of whom were co-aspirants in the September 3 primary.

The statement also named Mr Ade Adetimehin as the chairman of the campaign organisation and secretary of the Governor’s Council.
