Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima, the vice presidential candidate received the report from the committee tasked with conducting discussions and developing a structure for the Council yesterday in Abuja.

After presenting the report to the council, Kaduna Governor Nasir El-Rufai told reporters that the council would decide on the director-general and hold additional consultations on the other members.

Prior to the prior unveiling of the council members, the Governor stated that the report will be handed to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).

He said: “This is a delegation of the Progressive Governors Forum led by our Chairman Dr. Atiku Bagudu and the party represented by the National Secretary.

“We came to report on an assignment given to us by our presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate to begin the broad consultations and develop a structure for the presidential campaign council.

“We have done some work on it. We have briefed the candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken and our hope is that in the shortest possible time the candidate will consult more with the party leadership and brief Mr. President and get his input and then we formally unveil the presidential campaign council.

“A decision has been taken on the Director-General but other positions in the campaign council are still been discussed. The President and the National Chairman and National Working Committee will be briefed before a formal announcement.”

Also at the meeting last night were: Governors Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano); Bello Matawalle (Zamfara); Abubakar Badaru (Kebbi); Babajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos); former APC National Chairman Adams Oshiomhole; party’s National Secretary Senator Iyiola Omisore and Alhaji Kabiru Masari.
