President Muhammadu Buhari, late Sunday night, held a pre-campaign kick-off meeting with the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Plateau is set to host Buhari, Tinubu, Adamu and other dignitaries for the flag-off of APC presidential campaigns, an official of the campaign committee has said.
The party is expected to flag off its campaigns on Tuesday in Jos.
The Chairman, Local Organising Committee and Deputy Speaker, House of Representatives, Mr Ahmed Wase said on Monday in Jos that the committee had concluded the arrangements for the event.
Wase said that security and other arrangements were put in place for the success of the programme.
“With the calibre of guests, you can see that we have daunting task ahead of us, especially their security and safety while in the state.
“These task are surmountable as we have properly strategised to ensure nothing is left to chance,” he said.
Wase stated that the party’s vice presidential candidate Sen. Kashim Shettima, the Senate President, Sen. Ahmed Lawan, the Speaker House of Representatives, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamiia, as well as the deputy senate president, governors and other dignitaries would be in attendance.
He added that the committee is also expecting guests and party supporters across the length and breadth of the country to grace the occasion.
“I wish to commend the APC for its choice of Plateau for the launching of its presidential campaign.
“The choice of Jos which has a memorable history of hosting presidential campaigns and presidential primaries which produced presidents of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is not a mistake.
“This time around we are very prepared to repeat that feat as we confidenily March into the 2023 presidential and general elections,” he stated.
