President Muhammadu Buhari has announced that the National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will be lead the party’s campaign for the 2019 election.
Buhari made this disclosure on Monday while inaugurating the APC campaign council.
The President was supposed to lead the party’s campaign but handed it over to Tinubu so as to effectively focus on governance
Tinubu and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo are Co-Chairmen of the Council and by original plan, were to deputise the President, who ordinarily should lead the campaigns.
But on Monday, Buhari handed over that responsibility to Tinubu and said he didn’t want governance to suffer.
Buhari inaugurated the council at the International Conference Centre Abuja, an event that had the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, ministers and governors in attendance.
The campaign train will move to Bauchi State on Thursday.
