The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has appointed Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State as the South West Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
In a letter he personally signed, Tinubu said Akeredolu deserved the appointment given his impressive political achievement and exemplary leadership as governor and as a party member.
Tinubu appreciated Akeredolu for joining his campaign team, adding that he would conduct an effective, message-driven campaign that could lead the ruling party to victory in the 2023 presidential election.
The letter reads: “By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as the Zonal Campaign Coordinator (South West) of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
“This appointment is fitting and appropriate given your impressive political achievement and the exemplary leadership you have demonstrated as governor of your state and as a party member.
“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team. We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility as we conduct an effective, message-driven campaign leading us to victory in the 2023 presidential election.”
The development comes after Tinubu appointed Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State as the National Youth Coordinator of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.
