The inaugural meeting of President Muhammadu Buhari’s presidential campaign council on Wednesday was shunned by governors of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The meeting which is holding at the State House in Abuja was convened by President Buhari for the consideration and approval of operational modalities of the campaign council.
It is not readily understood why the APC governors were absent at the meeting but it was gathered that they were supposed to attend the meeting to receive instructions on how to coordinate the party’s campaigns in their states.
Present however at the meeting is the co-chairman of the campaign council, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
Also in attendance are the Minister of Transportation and Director-General of the campaign council, Rotimi Amaechi, the Director-General in charge of operations, Adeleke Mamora, and the Deputy-Director-General of the campaign team, Waziri Bulama.
Others are zonal directors for the campaign council: Aliyu Wamakko (north-west), Ali Ndume (north-east), Abdullahi Adamu (north-central), Sola Oke (south-west), Sharon Ikeazor (south-east) and Godswill Akpabio (south-south).
Also present are APC Vice Chairman North, Senator George Akume, and Vice Chairman South, Ken Nnamani.
