Bolaji Abdullahi Resigns as Nigeria Sugar Development Council Chairman
By Dipo Olowookere
Former National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Bolaji Abdullahi, has resigned his appointment as Chairman of the Nigeria Sugar Development Council.
Mr Abdullahi announced his resignation from the agency on Friday morning.
It came two days after he also announced his resignation as the spokesman of the ruling party in Nigeria, APC.
The former Minister of Sports was appointed as Chairman of the sugar council by President Muhammadu Buhari.
“Following my resignation as National Publicity Secretary of APC and my decision to quit the party, I announced to the board this morning that I have resigned my appointment as Chairman, Nigeria Sugar Development Council,” Mr Abdullahi disclosed in a Twitter post on Friday.
The former mouthpiece of APC decamped from the party to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday, a day after the Senate President, Mr Bukola Saraki, left the ruling party.
Mr Abdullahi is believed to be the political godson of the Senate President, who is very influential in Kwara State, where Mr Abdullahi also hails from.
