Al Progressives Congress National Leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is to co-chair President Muhammadu Buhari’s Campaign Council as the APC is set to unfold a list of at least 30 chieftains of the party to superintend over his 2019 presidential campaign activities.
According to sources, Tinubu has been nominated as a co-chair of the Presidential Campaign Council, which will be announced soon.
It was learnt that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would make further announcements on the composition and structure of the PDP Presidential campaign council.
“The President’s national co-chair will be tremendous assets on the ground as we build the biggest grassroots campaign in history,” said a top administration official familiar with the campaign council.
“Each member of the campaign council share the president’s vision for a future where every Nigerian can have a fair shot at success, where hard work pays off and responsibility is rewarded, said the official.
The council members are a diverse array of party leaders, governors and supporters of the president across the 36 states, including Abuja. The list includes zonal co-ordinators responsible for the 6 Geopolitical zones in the country.
The extensive list gives the president some political cover on several fronts.
The campaign council also included volunteers, activists and local leaders from important swing states and strongholds.
