Earlier today, the All Progressives Congress Party of Nigeria announced the list of members of the 2019 Presidential campaign committee that will drive the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity Mr. Femi Adesina and published here APC Names 2019 Presidential Campaign Council,
This evening, a clarification was issued by Mr. Femi Adesina which addressed concerns over the inclusion of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, President of Dangote Group in the list.
“It has become imperative to further clarify the status of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, named under the sub-head ADVISORY MEMBERS in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council announced on Friday, December 28, 2018.
Africa's richest man, not being a card-carrying member of APC, cannot, and is not member of the PCC. He is also a member of the Peace Committee, and thus cannot be in a partisan campaign council.”
