To douse the suspicion that President Buhari may be against the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu, the president has resolved to campaign for Tinubu in 10 states across the country.
NewsOnline reports that the president’s decision has also led to an alteration of the campaign schedule of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to the spokesman of the Tinubu/Okowa presidential campaign council, Festus Keyamo, Buhari will join the Tinubu campaign train in Adamawa State, Yobe State, Sokoto State, Kwara State, Ogun State , Cross Rivers State, Nassarawa State, Katsina State, Imo State and Lagos State.
The statement read, “the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress announces that in its revised Campaign Timetable just released, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, has shown further personal commitment to the cause of the All Progressives Congress and its Presidential flag-bearer, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in the 2023 Presidential election, by indicating his readiness to be physically present at some of our forthcoming presidential campaign rallies.”
Keyamo added that “Mr. President, out of his very busy schedule, had earlier attended the flag-off of the Presidential Campaign in Jos on the 15th of November, 2022. This was also after graciously accepting to be the Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling party.”
“In the latest Campaign Time Table released yesterday (5th January, 2023) the President is billed to join the Campaign Train in at least ten States. The States are Adamawa State on the 9th of January; Yobe State on the 10th of January; Sokoto State on the 16th of January Kwara State on the 17th of January; Ogun State on the 25th of January; Cross Rivers State on the 30th of January; Nassarawa State on the 4th of February; Katsina State on the 6th of February; Imo State on the 14th of February and the Grand Finale in Lagos State on the 18th of February.
