Oyegun Becomes APC National Chairman In Nigeria.

John Odigie Oyegun was born 12 August 1939, is the first national chairman of All Progressives Congress in Nigeria. He was also the Executive Governor of Edo State between 1992 and 1993, during the aborted Nigerian Third Republic.


Background

John Odigie Oyegun was born on August 12, 1939, in Warri, Delta State. He attended St. Patrick’s College, Asaba, and then went to the University of Ibadan where he obtained a Bachelor's degree in Economics. He then served in various capacities as a federal civil servant working as a development planner.

Chief John Oyegun was elected as civilian governor of Edo State on the SDP platform, during the transition to democracy launched by General Ibrahim Babangida and served from January 1992 to November 1993. He was removed from office after General Sani Abacha seized power. Later, he became a leader of the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP). In 2009 he was chairman of the Technical Working Committee of CODER. On June 13, 2014, he was elected chairman of Nigerian mega party, the All Progressives Congress following its high profile national convention. The emergence of Oyegun, a Christian from the south, as the first chairman of the APC was widely viewed as a checkmate on Peoples Democratic Party and other critics who have carried on a sustained castigation of the party as an Islamist organisation.
