The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has been indefinitely suspended, according to Director-General Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council and Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong, in order to reorganize the list before the start of the campaign.
Lalong claimed that more time was required to increase the roster in order to include more stakeholders in the council and broaden its geographic scope.
The governor of the Plateau has stated that the schedule of events, including the council’s inauguration, will be made public as soon as it is possible given the time needed to compile another list.
As gathered, the postponement came after some members of the party including state governors and the National Working Committee (NWC) faulted the list after a council chairman from Lagos, Kolade Alabi, was made chairman of a committee with incumbent and former governors as well as serving lawmakers as members.
Through a statement released on Tuesday, the director-general assured the members that all they were doing was to ensure the party goes to campaign with a formidable house.
According to the statement, “Recall that we had earlier earmarked a peace walk and prayers for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, to officially kick-off our campaigns for the 2023 Presidential Elections. We had also announced that the members of the Campaign Council report at the Campaign Headquarters on that day to collect their letters of appointment.
“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the time-table of these activities in order to ensure everyone is on board before activities officially commence. Consequently, the activities earlier announced for the 28th of September will no longer hold
“As the ruling and most attractive party in Nigeria, we understand the sacrifices and understanding of our teeming members who are more than willing to volunteer themselves for this great task ahead. It also shows the enormous love that the party members have for our candidates”.
