Lagos-based economist Abiola says Omisore is best man for APC national secretary
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that a Lagos-based economist and chartered banker, Ayobola Abiola, explained why Omisore is the round peg in the round hole for the job of APC national secretary.
It was reported that the position of the national secretary is considered as a vital organ of the political party.
He said Omisore’s progressive, democratic credential is not in doubt, given his antecedent as a co-founder of the Alliance for Democracy (AD) during the military era and subsequent return to the civil rule in 1999.
