The nominations of the National Campaign Management Committee members have drawn criticism for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate (NCMC).
Aminu Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto State, had been named as the Committee’s Director General, according to Anaedoonline.ng.
Umaru Bature, the PDP’s national organizing secretary, revealed it in a statement issued on Thursday in Abuja.
According to the announcement, Bala Mohammed, the governor of Bauchi State, was named as the North Vice Chairman and Udom Emmanuel, the governor of Akwa Ibom State, was named as the Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
Seyi Makinde, the governor of Oyo State, was chosen to serve as the council’s vice chairman for the south (PCC).
Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers State, and other governors are PCC members.
However, numerous Nigerians criticized Atiku and the PDP over the selection of some party members to the committee on the microblogging site Twitter.
