Other members of the new caretaker committee include Adebukola Ajaja as National Secretary, and Yusuf Saulawa the National Treasurer.
Also elected were Hassan Bello as National Financial Secretary, Ibe ThankGod as National Oganising Secretary, Omoregie Solomon as National Publicity Secretary, and Garba Mohammed as National Auditor.

He said: “A political party is the foundation for the nation’s democracy. Once you get it right the nation will be better for it.
“Get the leadership of political parties right, get their managers to obey the rule of law and it will spread to the larger society.
“When we have men and women that are conscious of the provisions of the constitution, desirous of making the political party work and for the rule of law to prevail, it will help the society.
“Through the men of integrity and capacity so elected, we will be at the helm of affairs of the society.
“The problem we are having today is that a lot of party leaders have commercialized politics. But today we want to tell the world that Accord is a party desirous of building the new cradle that will help in rebuilding the nation.
“From today, the struggle has started and the work has begun. Our election is not to come and relax but to work to build a new Accord Party which will build the nation.”
