APCON Chairmanship: Lai Mohammed, industry stakeholders differ on choice

What seems to be a disquiet storm is blowing in the Nigerian advertising and marketing communications over the choice of who becomes the chairman of Advertising Practitioners’ Council of Nigeria (APCON) which was recently vacated by Udeme Ufot.

Since the seat was vacated by Udeme Ufot of SO&U Advertising Limited aftermath the exit of President Goodluck Jonathan as the country’s President with the election that ushered in President Mohammadu Buhari, it has not been easy to fill the vacant seat.

Daily times gathered that the Minister overseeing the Council, Alhaji Lai Mohammed prefers to have Mr Kola Ayanwale, the Group Managing Director of Centrespread Advertising Limited as the next chairman while some influential stakeholders in the industry are rooting for the return of Udeme Ufot as the man to head the council.

Daily Times learnt that nobody has been decisively penciled down as the Chairman because the Minister who has the power to make the choice has not made up his mind and the stakeholders in the industry are uncomfortable with this posture, which is negatively impacting on activities in the entire industry.
