Tinubu, APC Governors Meeting Ends in Stalemate 2nd Time in a Week

For the second time in a week, the meeting between the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, governors of the party, members of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) and the disputed Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), yesterday, ended in deadlock.

The meeting, which again, failed to agree on a particular date that the ruling party would flag-off its campaign, however, saw the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, stay away from the deliberation that lasted hours, raising concerns about the state of the party.

The meeting was a follow up to last Wednesday’s tripartite committee meeting aimed at harmonising the party’s presidential campaign council list.

All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu took the opportunity to lay before the party leadership the draft of his manifesto for next year’s election for review and approval.

At yesterday’s tripartite meeting of the party organs in Abuja, the campaign council list was harmonised, the manifesto was approved and the nationwide presidential campaign programme proposed by the PCC was discussed and approved.

But the spokesperson of PCC, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN), has said the President Muhammadu Buhari’s schedule, being the Chairman of the campaign council, was delaying the flag-off of the campaign.

At the same time, wife of the APC presidential candidate, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, yesterday called on women to mobilise for the victory of the party at next year’ elections.

Recalls that the 422-member campaign list initially released, had created discord within the party with the governors, party leadership and stakeholders expressing dissatisfaction.

It was against this background that the campaign activities of the ruling party were put on hold indefinitely to ensure all hands were on deck and everyone carried along.
