2023: Tinubu’s campaign DG, chairman to be announce soon, says El-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has disclosed that efforts are on to appoint the director-general and the chairman for the presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Recall that some sections of the media had hinted that Mr El-Rufai and a former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole, were appointed as the chairman and director-general of the campaign council respectively.

Speaking to journalists after a meeting between the APC, its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and members of the Progressive Governors Forum in Abuja on Monday, Mr El-Rufai revealed that consultations were still on, adding that a formal announcement would soon be made.

“This is a delegation of the Progressive Governors Forum led by our chairman, Atiku Bagudu, and the party represented by the national secretary,” he said.

“We came to report on an assignment given to us by our Presidential Candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate to begin the broad consultations and develop a structure for the presidential campaign council. We have done some work on it.

“We have briefed the candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken and our hope is that in the shortest possible time the candidate will consult more with the party leadership and brief Mr President and get his input and then we formally unveil the presidential campaign council.

“A decision has been taken on the director-general but other positions in the campaign council are still being discussed.

“The president and the national chairman and national working committee will be briefed before a formal announcement,” Mr El-Rufai said.
