The All Progressives Congress (APC) has shifted the inauguration of its 422-member presidential campaign council, earlier scheduled for Monday to Wednesday.

Bayo Onanuga, the spokesman for the presidential campaign council, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday night in Abuja.

“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, September 28, 2022, at 8:00 a.m. Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns,” said Mr Onanuga.

He added that there would be a peace walk immediately after the prayers, saying that all nominees would be issued their letters of appointment on the same day.

He congratulated the campaign council members, saying it was a call to serve the party with total commitment and sacrifice.

“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,” said Mr Onanuga.

He added, “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 further explained that the APC and the candidates acknowledged their hard work and great financial and human resources that had been voluntarily expended.

Mr Onanuga urged the support groups to continue their good work, adding that the campaign council would work with the support groups as it moved along into the campaign season.

He encouraged other groups yet to formally register with the council to do so immediately for proper harmonisation.

According to a list of council members earlier released by the party, President Muhammadu Buhari will head the council.

APC presidential standard-bearer Bola Tinubu and Abdullahi Adamu, the party chairman, are to serve as deputy chairmen of the council. Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau is the director-general, with James Faleke as secretary to the council.

Kashim Shettima, the party’s vice-presidential candidate, is the vice-chairman of the council and Adams Oshiomhole, ex-APC national chairman is the deputy director-general (operations). Hadiza Usman is the deputy director-general (administration).
