2019: APC Considers Tinubu To Chair Presidential Campaign Council

Ahead of the launch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign proposed for the third week of this month, the party’s leadership is considering its national leader, Senator Bola Tinubu, as the chairman of its campaign council.

The council is to serve as the coordinating organ of the campaign of the party’s presidential candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to a reliable source, Tinubu has been briefed on this proposal and was one of the issues that were discussed during his meeting with Buhari on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi, said the source, is, however, proposed to continue in his position as the director-general of the campaign.

By the timetable of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the ban on electioneering for presidential candidates would be lifted on November 18.

Tinubu, according to the source, is being proposed for that role because of his vast experience in electioneering, a talent he reportedly displayed during the 2015 campaign that brought Buhari to power.

“The president has so much confidence in Tinubu, and feels that he would be best suited to lead the campaign,” the source said
