The details of the meeting between the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, his running mate, Kashim Shettima and some governors elected on the platform of the party have emerged.
HausaToday had earlier reported that Tinubu met with some governors and leaders in the party to strategize ahead of the 2023 general election.
The Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, while addressing newsmen after the meeting, revealed that the APC Presidential Campaign Council will be unveiled soon.
El-Rufai, after submitting a report of a consultation committee to Tinubu on Monday, said the decision of who should emerge as the Director-General of the Council would be disclosed.
He further stated that the report will be presented to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) before Tinubu unveils members of the council.
El-Rufai said, “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 the candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken we hope that in the shortest possible time the candidate will consult more with the party leadership and 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 been discussed. The President and the National Chairman and National Working Committee will be briefed before a formal announcement.”
