ABUJA, (CAJ News) – A public affairs analyst has endorsed the emergence of Prince Deji Adeyanju, the current Head of New Media at People’s Democratic Party, as the party’s new National Publicity Secretary (NPS).
Jude Ndukwe, spokesperson of former PDP publicist, Femi Fani-Kayode, said as the party went in search of a new set of national working committee members at a convention later this month, one position that would attract huge attention after the chairmanship position was office of the NPS.
“This is because the NPS performs the dual function of being the face of the party when one is searching for its image, and the megaphone of the party when one is searching for its voice,” said Ndukwe.
“With the experience of the last general elections, Nigerians now know that the strength of a political party lies in its publicity machinery.”
Ndukwe said the publicity strength of a party had the capacity to make or mar the party.
“It is for these reasons that party faithful throughout the federation went agog when Prince Deji Adeyanju, the current Head of PDP New Media, picked his nomination form for the office of National Publicity Secretary on Monday, August 8, 2016, at the party’s temporary office in Abuja.”
Ndukwe said Deji was a vibrant and principled party loyalist who had taken many risks for standing by the party even at its most critical point of need.
There is jostling for the position with immediate past publicist, Olisah Metuh, under probe from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission for alleged corruption.
