EXCLUSIVE: Ajimobi Replaces Adebayo As APC Deputy Nat’l Chairman, Repete Becomes Special Adviser


Former governor Abiola Ajimobi will replace former governor Niyi Adebayo as deputy national chairman (south) of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The appointment, OYOINSIGHT.COM learnt, was reached at Tuesday’s caucus meeting of the southwest APC which held in Osogbo.

This follows the appointment of Adebayo as minister in the administration of the Muhammadu Buhari.

Hon. Afeez Bolaji Repete, who is the state’s nominee in the national executive of the party, was said to have tendered his resignation at the meeting to pave way for Ajimobi’s emergence. While Repete would become the special adviser to Ajimobi, the only post attached to the office of the deputy national chairman, Ekiti caucus is expected to nominate a replacement for the position of deputy national youth leader which he is vacating.


  1. It is definitely a very bad and not well thought out decision by the party to appoint Ajimobi under whose watch APC became disintegrated in Oyo State thus leading to the loss of the State to PDP in the Governorship election as a Deputy National Chairman South West of the party.
    He is a man that lacks tact and public speaking ethics and decorum. He lacks the necessary diplomatic tact to be a real leader and mobilizer except to his core followers who are mainly his cheer leaders.
    A man that has loss every honour among his people – koseleri koleselemo now being given a national office. It’s simply absurd.
