The flag-off of the presidential campaign of the All Progressives Congress (APC) scheduled for Monday in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has been postponed.
This is despite the opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) starting its presidential campaign in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.
The postponement of the APC campaign kick-off is coming days after the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu returned to the country.
There are indications that the campaign was postponed due to the high-level consultations still being held among stakeholders.
Recall that a tripartite meeting of the APC governors, the APC Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) and the National Working Committee of the party led by Abdullahi Adamu was held at the party’s national secretariat.
The meeting was fixed by the ruling party to deliberate on the postponed zonal tour by the six National Vice Chairmen and also deliberate on modalities for the proposed ‘APC National Conference’ which it intends to convene before the end of the year.
The stakeholders also discussed the composition of the campaign council.
The Director of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, in a chat with Vanguard, noted that the presidential campaign is a marathon.
He further stated that it has begun in Lagos, Katsina, Benue, Kogi and several other states.
Onanuga, however, stated that the flag-off of the presidential campaign will be dependent on when the party formally inaugurates its PCC.
Even though the party has not inaugurated its presidential council, its Women Wing has now been slated for inauguration tomorrow at the Presidential Villa.
Onanuga when asked if the campaign would still be flagged off tomorrow, Onanuga simply said, “No sir”.
