The immediate past Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the State of Osun, Alhaji Razak Salinsile, was on Saturday, 16 October, 2021 elected Chairman of the Party at a well attended state Party Congress.
Alhaji Salinsile and 33 others were elected on Saturday using a direct primary mode of election as party members converged at the open field opposite Ladsol Water in the Ogo-Oluwa area of the State Capital, Osogbo.
The new Osun APC Chairman from Iwo Local Government was elected alongside other principal officers to steer the affairs of the party in the next four years.
