Posted on August 2, 2022


The Executive Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, has said that the All Progressives Congress, APC, has decided on who would be the Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Council.

Gov El-Rufai said this after a meeting between the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, governors elected on the platform of the party and the leadership represented by National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore in Lagos on Monday.

El-Rufai said they will brief President Muhammadu Buhari and the National Working Committee of APC before formal unveiling of the Campaign Council to party members and the general public.

“This is a delegation of the Progressive Governors Forum, led by our Chairman, Dr. Atiku Bagudu and the party represented by the National Secretary. We came to report on an assignment given to us by our Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate to begin the broad consultations and develop a structure for the Presidential Campaign Council.”

“We have done some work on it. We have briefed our Presidential candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken. And our hope is that in the shortest possible time, the candidate will consult more with the party leadership, brief Mr. President and get his input and then we formally unveil the Presidential Campaign Council.”

“A decision has been taken on the Director General but other positions in the campaign council are still being discussed. The President, the National Chairman and the National Working Committee will be briefed before a formal announcement” Gov El-Rufai said.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered from an informed source that the stakeholders may have settled for the Executive Governor of Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, as the Presidential Campaign DG.
