The National Chairman of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore has presented the party’s flag to its candidate for the October 31, 2020 senatorial bye-election in Northern Cross River, Dr. Dino Magam.
The presentation was done in Abuja shortly after the party submitted Magam’s details to the Independent National Electoral Commission as it’s candidate for the elections.
Magam emerged the party’s flag bearer by consensus as he was the only to pick the nomination and expression of interest form.
He will square off with candidates of other parties in the bye-election occasioned by the death of Senator Rose Oko.
A statement signed by the Cross River State Chapter Chairman, Agba Jalingo says the 37-year old holds a Bsc in Human Anatomy and an MBBS degree from the University of Port Harcourt.
“He commenced his early political life as President of the National Association of Cross River State Students ( NACRISS).
“He has also held other positions in his educational and professional life like the Publicity Secretary of the Federation of Catholic Medical Students, Secretary of the Jets Club in Calabar, Secretary of Nigerian Medical Association of Cross River State legal committee and member of the Student Union Government Transport Committee of UNIPORT.
“Magam is the current branch secretary of St. Patrick’s College Alumni Association Ikot Ansa, Calabar,” the statement read.
