Buhari enthusiast joins race for APC spokesman’s seat
A popular blogger and member of the Buhari Media Organisation (BMO), Abubakar Sidiq Usman, yesterday, picked the nomination and expression of interest forms to contest the position of national publicity secretary of the ruling APC.
Usman, who was accompanied by BMO members to the national secretariat of the APC in Abuja, pledged to use fact and figures to challenge what he described as lies being dished out by the PDP and ADP, in the event he emerged APC spokesman at the June 23 national convention of the party.
He also pledged to create a synergy in the management of communication flow between party organs and arms of government at various levels, adding that relevant targetbased communication techniques would be employed to extend the political influence of the APC.
The Kogi State-born young politician, who said he had consulted widely and had the support of all stakeholders before picking the forms, said his emergence would be a bad market to the opposition parties selling lies against the APC.
“If members of the party don’t even know what is happening in their party, there is no way they can go out and sell the party and convince more people to come and join it,” he said.
His entry into the race seemed to have confirmed the current feeling that the northcentral zone of the party might have micro-zoned the position of national publicity secretary to Kogi State.
Daily Trust learnt that Kwara State might have settled for the position of National Woman Leader with a former senator and the daughter of the Olusola Saraki dynasty, Gbemisola, being touted as the likely successor to Hajiya Ramatu Tijani Aliyu, who presently occupies the seat.
