The All Progressives Congress, APC, would today name a Presidential Campaign Council to anchor the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The campaign council, BusinessDay learnt, is the main agenda of the Wednesday prolonged meeting of the National Working Committee, NWC of APC.
Though the National Chairman of APC, Adams Oshiomhole who presided over the meeting and APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanrie Issa-Onilu did not address the press at the end of the meeting, a reliable source privy to the meeting said, the NWC discussed extensively on the issue of constituting a Campaign Council.
According to the source, “tomorrow they will announce the campaign council. That was the main thing that made the meeting so long. After then campaign will now start fully. The council has to be formed before Buhari returns so that when he returned campaign will immediately kick off”.
The source who refused to name those likely to be members of the Campaign Council, however affirmed that the present Director General of the Buhari Campaign Organization, Rotimi Amaechi is not going to lead the campaign because of reservations raised by some top APC leaders.
Recall that Amaechi anchored the 2015 victorious election of Buhari and was recently reappointed by the President as the Director General of his Campaign Organization for the 2019 general election.
