The All Progressives Congress (APC) will kick off its campaign and unveil the policy document of its presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on Friday.
A source close to the State House revealed that President Muhammadu Buhari will launch the manifesto and inaugurate the Presidential Campaign Council at the presidential villa.
According to the source, the inauguration will herald the official kick-off of the campaign, which would be conducted after a short address by the president, who is also the chairman of the campaign council.
“Buhari, in his capacity as the chairman, will inaugurate the PCC and unveil the policy document of Tinubu. There are also strong indications that the choice of Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, which was earlier chosen as the official venue for the campaign kick-off, will give way to a new one.
“For now, I can say all the grey areas causing disaffection among the APC National Working Committee and the governors have been taken care of in the newly harmonised campaign council list,” the source said.
When contacted, the Director of Media and Publicity for the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council confirmed the report.
He, however, declined to comment further on the choice of venue and notable names in the newly-harmonised list of campaign council members, among others.
“Both the campaign council and the manifesto will be launched on Friday. But I don’t have details on the other questions you raised,” he stated.
It would be recalled thatTinubu had unveiled a 422-man committee comprising political heavyweights and other notable members to pilot the various sub-committees of the campaign council, last Friday
