Information reaching Naija News on Tuesday morning confirmed that the presidential campaign kick-off of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has been suspended indefinitely.
The ruling party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) had earlier scheduled the kick-off of the event for Wednesday, September 28, 2022.
A statement, however, issued on Tuesday morning by the Director-General (DG) of the Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima PCC, Governor Simon Lalong, revealed that the party is making some adjustments to its timetable to accommodate the growing interests of party loyalists.
A new date for the kick-off of the campaign would be communicated soon according to the Plateau State Governor.
The statement reads: “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. We had also announced that the members of the Campaign Council report at the Campaign Headquarters on that day to collect their letters of appointment.
“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the time-table of these activities in order to ensure everyone is on board before activities officially commence. Consequently, the activities earlier announced for the 28th of September will no longer hold.
“As the ruling and most attractive party in Nigeria, we understand the sacrifices and understanding of our teeming members who are more than willing to volunteer themselves for this great task ahead. It also shows the enormous love that the party members have for our candidates.”
Naija News in an attempt to get further information about the development, push a call through to the spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo and the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka.
Unfortunately, the party chieftains did not respond to the calls as of the time of reporting.
