APC Campaign Council Fixes Date To Hold Inaugural Meeting
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council has fixed a date for its inaugural meeting.
Omadaily gathered that the inaugural meeting would take place on Tuesday, October 4 at the PPC Headquarters in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
A source told This Day that the meeting would involve all Directors and PCC leaders in all the states of the Federation.
Recall that the ruling party had on September 28 scheduled a peace walk and prayers to officially kick off campaigns for the 2023 presidential election, but was suspended indefinitely.
Thereafter, the ruling party released the list of the 422-member campaign council, which caused a disagreement between members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
The APC NWC disregarded the list and accused Tinubu of running a one-man show and ignoring the agreement he made with them before the list of members was released.
In a leaked letter purportedly written by the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the party asked Tinubu to withdraw the 422-member list.
Reacting to the development in a statement, the party’s spokesman, Felix Morka, said the party chairman did not write the letter for the withdrawal of the council list.
Nevertheless, APC decided to expand the membership of the council to over 2,000 to accommodate all interests and prevent the party from drifting as the February 28 presidential election approached.
