APC Gives Reason For Omitting Osinbajo’s Name In Presidential Campaign Council



The Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling All Progressives Congress  has shed light on the omission of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s name in its 422-man list of Tinubu/Shettima campaign council.

According to the party’s Director of Public Affairs and the chief spokesperson of Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, the decision was based on President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive that asked that the VP and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha be left out.

He stated that Buhari’s decision was to allow the duo focus on governance during the electioneering period.

Keyamo said, “Our attention has been drawn to some stories making the rounds that there may be something amiss within the family of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the name of our own revered and respected Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, is not included in the list of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

“Nothing can be farther from the facts. For the avoidance of doubt, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, is the Chairman of the Campaign Council.

“As a result, Mr. President has SPECIFICALLY directed that the Vice-President and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha should be left out of the Campaign Council to concentrate on the governance of the country and administration of Government.

“As a responsible Party and Government, all the key functionaries of government cannot abandon their positions for electioneering campaigns.

“The APC has the mandate of the Nigerian people to administer the country on their behalf at least till May, 29, 2023, and this we intend to do with all sense of responsibility.

“We will not toe the path of those who governed the country in an irresponsible manner before us and our Party is not in total disarray like those who wish to ‘rescue’ the country, but cannot simply manage their own internal affairs.”
