REVEALED: Why APC, Tinubu Are Unable To Set Up Presidential Campaign Council

A few days before the official start date of September 28, 2022, for the beginning of campaigns for the 2023 elections, it has become clear why the All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed to reveal the composition of its presidential campaign team.

The delay is considered to be largely due to a conflict of interest among influential party members and power brokers regarding who should be on the council.

The party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, is reportedly apprehensive of having saboteurs on the council since he knows full well that Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the APC National Chairman, had preferred Senate President Ahmad Lawan to be elected flagbearer but things didn’t work out for him.

Speaking specifically, the source who spoke to Dailytrust about the postponement was quoted as saying yesterday that the main causes were the APC’s “unabated crisis, discordant tunes, selfishness, and lack of internal democracy.”

According to the source, “In the composition of the major campaign council, they don’t want those people who fought against Oshiomhole to be part of the campaign council now.

“And Tinubu knows quite well that Adamu, the APC’s national chairman, was never in his support. He was rooting for Senate President, Ahmad Lawan. All those ones are still there, that is why it is not easy for them to constitute the national campaign council.”

He added, “So unabated crisis, discordant tunes, selfishness and lack of internal democracy are specific factors militating or constituting the delay. In fact, some of those who call themselves the big guys are trying to hijack the process, hence the delay.”

According to Anaedoonline.ng, the campaign council has chosen Festus Keyamo, the minister of state for labor, and the governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, as its director general and spokesman, respectively. However, the other members of the team have not yet been revealed.
