The Director-General, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council and Governor, Plateau State, Mr Simon Lalong have offered an insight as to why there is a shift in the start of the All progressive congress (APC) campaigns.
Lalong in a terse statement explained that the decision was aimed at accommodating more stalwarts of the party.
Lalong who did not specify the new date the Campaign Council would be inaugurated assured that a new date and timetable of events will be announced soon.
He noted: “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 appointments.
“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the timetable 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.”
