Nigeria’s ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), has announced the postponement of the inauguration of its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) to accommodate more members.
In a statement issued on Monday night by the Director General of the campaign and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, the inauguration has been postponed indefinitely, to allow the expansion of the list.
News Reporters had exclusively reported that the 422-member PCC released by the Secretary of the council, James Falake, did not go down well with the governors, who threatened to withdraw their support for the campaign.
This paper also reported that Mr Lalong and the Chairman of APC Governors Forum, Abubakar Bagudu, had resolved to expand the list, to accommodate the interest of the governors.
In the statement, Mr Lalong said the party has adjusted the timetable to ensure that everyone is fully onboard before the commencement of campaign.
“Recall that we had earlier earmarked a peace walk and prayers for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, to officially kick-off our campaigns for the 2023 Presidential Elections.
