The All Progressives Congress (APC) is celebrating its party’s first interim National Chairman and former Governor of Osun State, H.E. Chief Adebisi Akande on his 81st birthday.
This was contained in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
“Today, we celebrate an astute administrator, father figure, voice of reason, a grassroots politician, and an exemplary elder statesman.
“Our great Party recognises the efforts of Baba Akande alongside other founding fathers in the formation of the APC, our Change Agenda and in entrenching progressive politics in the country,” it stated.
The APC tasked Baba Akande and other members of the party’s recently-constituted National Reconciliation Committee to meet with aggrieved party leaders and bring lasting peace and reconciliation across party ranks.
“We count on Baba Akande to bring to bear his experience and goodwill in achieving the committee’s mandate,” it added.
The APC family worldwide prayed that the Almighty God grants Baba Akande good health, long life and wisdom as he continues to contribute to the growth of APC and the country.
