Meseko Joins Race for APC National Publicity Secretary

- Ugo Aliogo

Former member, House of Representa­tives, Hon Durosinmi Meseko yesterday joined the race for the position of National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressiv­es Congress (APC) during the June 23 National Convention of the party.

Speaking after the Secretary of the Convention Committee, Sen Ben Uwajumobu presented him the nomination form, Meseko said his interest in the office was motivated by his desire to portray the party in the best possible light.

"In arriving at, and clarifying this aspiration, I first introspect­ively considered my ability, passion, energy, drive and desire to portray our party in the best possible light and make the real image of principles and fidelity to the people that we truly stand for".

According to him, he had taken time to consult widely before taking a final decision.

"Realising that our greatest asset has been our beginning history of consensus and continuing ability to build, and sometimes forge this consensus, i consulted widely with critical stakeholde­rs at every level to ensure that we could build a consensus in the best spirit and character of our Party.

It is the combinatio­n of these that has brought me before you to offer myself to serve and for service", he declared.

In his words, "there is no gainsaying the fact that as a ruling party with a strong opposition breathing down its neck, we can least afford the luxury of not putting a round peg in a round hole in our publicity unit, especially during this critical moment that the nation is transiting into election season proper. The implicatio­ns are better imagined".
