The APC has changed the date of the 422 member Presidential Campaign Council inauguration from Monday, September 26, to Wednesday, September 28.
In a statement issued on Sunday night in Abuja, Mr. Bayo Onanuga, Director, Media and Publicity, APC PCC, made this revelation.
He said, “The APC Presidential Campaign Council wishes to inform all members nominated to serve in the various directorates to report at the campaign headquarters on Wednesday Sept. 28, 2022 at 8 a.m.
“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns.”
After the prayers, he announced that there would be a peace walk, and that all nominees would receive their letters of appointment on the same day.
He praised the campaign council members and urged them to serve the party with sacrifice and entire dedication.
Onanuga said, “We know this is a call to serve our great party that will demand total commitment and sacrifice from all of us.
“It is the council’s strong belief that all members will work hard to deliver a resounding victory for our great party in the 2023 presidential election.
“We also want to use this medium to express our profound gratitude to all support groups registered with the campaign council.
“We are aware you have been working assiduously to promote our candidates and the party across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).”
He claimed that their remarkable effort and selfless sacrifice of significant financial and human resources had been recognised by the APC and the candidates.
Onanuga advised the support organisations to keep up the good job and added that the PCC will collaborate with them as the campaign season progressed.
He urged organisations that haven’t yet registered properly with the PCC to do so right away for proper harmonisation.
The list of members of the council earlier released by the party shows that President Muhammadu Buhari will head the council, while Bola Tinubu, the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, and Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the party National Chairman, will serve as Deputy Chairmen of the council.
Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau is the Director-General with James Faleke as Secretary to the council.
Sen. Kashim Shettima, the party’s Vice-Presidential candidate is the vice chairman of the council and Adams Oshiomhole, former APC National Chairman is the deputy Director-General (Operations).
