The Governor’s Advisory Council, the highest decision-making body of the All Progressives Congress in Lagos, has reportedly appointed Musiliu Obanikoro, a former Minister of State for defence, into its ranks.
Obanikoro, a former chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party and now an ally of Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC, was also a former Ambassador to Ghana.
His appointment into GAC was announced on Twitter by his son, Babajide, who is currently a member of the house of representatives.
The younger Obanikoro also revealed that Demola Seriki, Ambassador of Nigeria to Spain, and Femi Pedro, a former deputy governor of Lagos, were also appointed into the council.
“Congratulations Daddy @MObanikoro on your well-deserved appointment to the Governance Advisory Council (#GAC). Your appointment to the highly placed Council is proof of your well-documented work ethic.
“Hearty Congratulations also to Ambassador @DemolaSeriki, @femipedro (Former Deputy Governor of Lagos State), Mrs. Sarah Sosan (Former Deputy Governor of Lagos State), Mrs Adejoke Adefulire @Adejoke_O_A (Senior Special Assistant to the President on Sustainable Development Goals).
“With the #GAC comprising these extremely cerebral individuals, it is clear that the party is in competent hands and will continue to work towards a great future,” he added.
