Tinubu Take Over From Buhari As Chairman Of APC Campaign Ahead Of Elections

The National Leader of the All Progressives CongressAsiwaju Bola Tinubu, has been chosen to lead the party’s campaigns for the February general elections in place of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the Chairman of the APC Campaign Council.

 

This decision was arrived at by President Buhari, today while inaugurating the campaign council.

According to the President,  the reason was that he didn’t want governance to suffer because of elections.

Before this new development, Tinubu and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo are Co-Chairmen of the Council and by original plan, alongside the President, who ordinarily should lead the campaigns.

 

But on Monday, Buhari handed over that responsibility to Tinubu and said he didn’t want governance to suffer.

 

Buhari inaugurated the council at the International Conference Centre Abuja, an event that had the National Chairman of the party, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, ministers and governors in attendance.

 

The campaign train will move to Bauchi State on Thursday.
