APC Postpones Commencement Of Its PCC Campaign

The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) has postponed the commencement of its campaign which was scheduled to begin on Wednesday the 28th of September.

Recall that ThavMedia had earlier reported the initial postponement of the inauguration and kick off of the PCC, on Monday it was announced that the campaign was postponed till Wednesday, however, on Tuesday, Simon Lalong, the Presidential Campaign Council’s Director-General and the governor of Plateau State, made an announcement further postponing the campaigns indefinitely.

 

 

According to the statement, the reason for the decision was to allow the council time to broaden the campaign council list to include more stakeholders. The governor noted that a new date for the kick-off would be announced soon.

However, reports from SaharaReporters cite Tinubu’s failing health and his departure from Nigeria at midnight on Saturday for London to seek medical attention as the real reasons why the campaign might not kick off as scheduled. Tinubu is expected to see his doctors at a Central London Clinic on Monday.

“Our principal, Tinubu is sick and tired. He is expected to see his doctors in London today at a Central London Clinic,” a source had told SaharaReporters.
Meanwhile, the campaign council’s statement on Tuesday, read, “Recall that we had earlier earmarked a peace walk and prayers for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, to officially kick-off our campaigns for the 2023 Presidential Elections.

“We had also announced that the members of the Campaign Council report at the Campaign Headquarters on that day to collect their letters of appointments.”

“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the time-table of these activities in order to ensure everyone is on board before activities officially commence.

“Consequently, the activities earlier announced for the 28th of September will no longer hold.”
