APC to release amended campaign council list this week

The All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to release the revised edition of its campaign council list this week in a bid to bring to an end the crisis engulfing the party and delaying the kick-off of its campaign.

This is as the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) of the party has sought the financial support of its National Working Committee (NWC) for its candidate, Bola Tinubu.

A top official of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) who disclosed this to news men yesterday, however warned that it would be practically impossible for all members of the NWC or members of party to make the final list.

“Everybody has been accommodated. The comprehensive names of the members of the directorates will now be released. There are some directorates that we may have up to 30 to 40 names as members.

These comprehensive names will be released this week. But, it is important to warn that there is no way every member of the party will be a committee member,” said the source, who declined to have his name mentioned.

On the letter the party’s leadership wrote to request headship of key positions in the PCC, he said: “Does it really make sense for the NWC members that own the party and the campaign to be jostling to be members of the campaign council? Their positions are apparently superior to that of the campaign council.

“Imagine, for instance, the national publicity secretary or national organising secretary of the ruling party struggling to be the director of a campaign council when the council should be statutorily reporting to them,” he said.

The call for support for financial support for Tinubu comes amid fresh crisis over who takes charge of the presidential campaign funds between the NWC and PCC.

It was learnt that the development is threatening to throw a spanner in the works of the ruling party which is yet to formally flag off its campaign ahead of 2023 general election.
