The All Progressives Congress (APC) on Monday, March 14, said the party is finding it difficult to find a replacement for its former spokesperson, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

Speaking at a press briefing at the APC secretariat in Abuja, the National Chairman of the party, Chief  John Odigie-Oyegun said a spokesperson to fit into Mohammed's shoes is hard to come by.

He however assured that the party will intensify efforts into finding a spokesman soon.

“I think arrangements have been completed to hold the necessary congresses to nominate a spokesperson.

“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,’’ Oyegun said.

Pulse recalls that prior to the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as the President, Mohammed was the party's spokesman during its years as opposition. He was later appointed the Minister of Information and Culture.

Oyegun, who just resumed after a 10-day working leave, also said all party activities will hold as planned this month.

According to him, the APC caucus will meet on March 21, the BOT on March 22 and NEC on March 24.
