President Muhammadu Buhari hands over the APC campaign leadership To Asiwaju Bola Tinubu (APC) for the 2019 elections.
President Buhari has given full charge of his re-election bid to the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu. The President made this announcement when he launched the APC Presidential Campaign Council at the Abuja International Conference Center today Monday January 7th.
“Even though we have only 40 days, this campaign is going to tax us all because we intend to touch all corners of our great and vast country. But I must also add that, though we will all be deeply involved, I would like to assure the nation that I will do my part without making governance or my work suffer. Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, my co-chairman, will be fully in charge and is going to be on 24-hour vigil.
That is to say, the operational buck of this campaign stops at his table, and I, therefore, urge all of us in the leadership of this campaign, in the field operations on the campaign trail and in the Secretariat to consult with Asiwaju whenever guidance is needed.
“It is on this note, and in the name of God, that I now have the pleasure of inaugurating the APC Presidential Campaign Council 2019.” he said
The president on Monday reportedly said he doesn’t want governance to suffer because of elections, therefore he was ceding responsibility of campaigns for the party to Tinubu.
APC Campaign Leadership is now spearheaded by Tinubu.
