APC moves PCC members inauguration to Wednesday

As a measure to avoid contravening any section of the 2022 electoral act, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has shifted the inauguration of its 422- member Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) for the 2023 election.

The party said that the inauguration earlier scheduled for Monday, Sept. 26, has been postponed to Wednesday, Sept. 28, the date the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) approved for the commencement of campaign for next year’s poll.

Announcing the postponement, Director, Media and Publicity, APC PC, Bayo Onanuga, said that all appointees on the campaign list should visit the party headquarters for the inauguration on the new date.

Onanuga disclosed the postponement and the new date through a statement made available to newsmen yesterday in Abuja.

He said that there would be a peace walk immediately after the prayers, saying that all nominees would be issued their letters of appointment on the same day.

According to the statement, “The APC Presidential Campaign Council wishes to inform all members nominated to serve in the various directorates to report at the campaign headquarters on Wednesday Sept. 28, 2022 at 8 a.m.

“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns.

“We know this is a call to serve our great party that will demand total commitment and sacrifice from all of us. It is the council’s strong belief that all members will work hard to deliver a resounding victory for our great party in the 2023 presidential election.

“We also want to use this medium to express our profound gratitude to all support groups registered with the campaign council. We are aware you have been working assiduously to promote our candidates and the party across the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT),” he said.

He said that the APC and the candidates acknowledged their hard work and great financial and human resources that had been voluntarily expended.

Onanuga urged the support groups to continue their good work, adding that the PCC would work with the support groups as it moved along into the campaign season.

He encouraged other groups yet to formally register with the PCC to do so immediately for proper harmonisation.

It would be recalled that reports that according to a list of members of the council earlier released by the party, President Muhammadu Buhari will head the council.

The party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and the party National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, are to serve as Deputy Chairmen of the council.
