- Governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun state appointed a new chief of staff, Abdulrasak Salinsile
- The new appointee was the secretary of the APC in the state before his appointment
- He is from the same local government with the former SSG and governorship candidate of ADP in the state
Seventeen days to the governorship election in Osun state, Governor Rauf Aregbesola, has appointed Abdulrasak Salinsile as his new chief of staff.
NAIJ.com regional reporter in Osun state, Sola Adetona, reports that prior to his appointment as the new chief of staff, Salinsile was the secretary of All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
The new chief of staff to the governor is from the same local government with the ADP candidate in September 22 governorship election, Moshood Adeoti, who recently resigned his appointment as the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) and defected to ADP to realise his governorship ambition.
The position became vacant following the former occupier, Gboyega Oyetola's victory during APC's governorship primaries, thereby becoming the party's standard bearing during the forthcoming election.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had previously reported that the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, on Wednesday, August 29, inaugurated the party’s 63-member national campaign council for the September 22 Osun state governorship election.
The campaign council is chaired by the Kano state governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje. In his remarks, Oshiomhole, said: “We are very grateful to Governor Ganduje for graciously accepting to provide leadership and chair this very important committee.
“Your Excellencies, many of you present here have been very much involved in helping to provide leadership in most of the campaigns that we have had in recent times after the last general elections. The most recent is that of Ekiti state where your Excellencies did very well.
