The All Progressives Congress (APC) has put on hold Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) members’ inauguration indefinitely as against the earlier date released by the party after aggrieved members continue pointing out irregularities from the list released over the weekend.
Grievances and expressions of displeasure by some sections of the party particularly state governors from the ruling party may have allowed reconsideration of several demands from those who were considered major stakeholders in APC.
The suspension of the PCC members’ inauguration became necessary in order to address key issues from the governors who raised concerns on behalf of their former colleagues and serving ministers who were being placed to serve as committee members under the chairman of Bariga Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Kolade Alabi.
Although, there were several others goofing that members of APC were not comfortable with and they were expecting those grey areas to be addressed as soon as possible before any inauguration could take place.
Sources from the party and Tinubu’s campaign office disclosed that the indefinite suspension is better to urgently address what could collapse the entire house and not addressing such concerns before embarking on the campaign may lead to sabotage.
They claim that PCC members’ computations looked like it was imposed on part members and that several people were not well carried along before the list was drafted and released over the weekend.
They confirmed that the inauguration is currently on hold and no specific date has been fixed yet by the committee in charge of the ceremony while waiting for President Muhammadu Buhari, the Presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu and APC National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and other key stakeholders.
Before the indefinite postponement, the director, Media, and Publicity, PCC, Bayo Onanuga, had announced a shift in date from Monday, September 26th to Wednesday, September 28th, a development that did not go down well with some members on the list, particularly those that were eager to get their membership authenticated.
Meanwhile, members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party backed the postponement as it would allow for more time to address their grievances including the PCC not carrying them along in the appointment of the members.
