By Sadiq Umar – Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the African Democratic Congress (ADC) has reshuffled its National Working Committee (NWC) to reposition the party for future electoral success.

ADC National Chairman, Ralph Okey Nwosu, who announced the changes in a statement Thursday, said Chike Okogwu, a Havard-trained technocrat and human rights activist, is now Deputy National Chairman, Strategy, Innovation, and Change.

The party also named its former National Publicity Secretary, Anayo Arinze, as National Coordinator, Electoral Matters and INEC liaison.

“Arinze is required to use his wealth of knowledge and experience to guard electoral matters and INEC relations to ensure that the ADC leverages on its current position as party of choice to ensure electoral gains”, it stated.

Similarly, former Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yemi Kolapo, has been appointed as the National Publicity Secretary.

Also, a former Secretary to Kogi State Government, Justina Abanida, is the new Deputy National Legal Adviser.

While Abdul Ogar (Nasarawa) an activist and one of the chief promoters of Not Too Young To Run, has been appointed Deputy National Treasurer.

“We are certain that these party leaders are perfect fits and will use their wealth of experience to build an inclusive and virile political platform that all members and people of Nigeria will be proud of and enthusiastic to be part of,” the statement added.
