The Bola Tinubu, the party’s nominee for president in 2023, Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has been formed by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
At a convention in Abuja in June, the party’s co-founder and former Lagos helmsman secured the presidential nomination.
The PCC Secretary, a federal senator named James Faleke, announced the list of the council’s 422 members on Friday.
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who ran against Tinubu, is conspicuously absent. When the APC nominee was governor, the vice president served as commissioner for justice.
Rotimi Amaechi, a former transportation minister and first-place finisher in the primary election, was appointed special adviser on infrastructure.
