The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is difficult to get a replacement that can match the performance of its former spokesperson, Lai Mohammed.
Mr. Mohammed now serves as Nigeria’s Information Minister.
The APC Chairman, John Odigie-Oyegun, said on Monday at the party secretariat in Abuja that the party had a problem getting a spokesperson to fit Mr. Mohammed’s status.
He, however, said that the issue was being resolved and the party would have a spokesperson soon.
Mr. Mohammed served as APC’s spokesperson during its years as opposition until the party emerged winner in last presidential elections.
“I think arrangements have been completed to hold the necessary congresses to nominate a spokesperson,” Mr. Oyegun said.
“I think that should be done very shortly. In fact the issue is getting somebody that can be as close as possible to the outstanding performance of the present minister of information, Lai Mohammed,’’ he said.
The chairman, who just resumed from a 10-day working leave, said he was glad to be back to work.
“I told you I was going on a break because I needed it. I’ve had a good break, I’ve had a bit of rest and I’m back to the office,’’ he said.
He assured that all party activities would hold as planned in the month.
“All the scheduled meetings of the party will run as planned, the caucus will meet on the 21st, the BOT on the 22nd and NEC on the 24th.
“Everything will go as planned,’’ he said.
