APC Dissolves Presidential Campaign Council

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), at the weekend, dissolved its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), inaugurated last year to prosecute the 2023 presidential election.

In a statement, jointly signed by Director General of the council, Governor Simon Lalong, and Secretary, Mr. James Abiodun Faleke, the party, on behalf of the chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council, President Muhammadu Buhari, the president-elect, Bola Tinubu, and other leaders, appreciated all council members, leaders and supporters for working assiduously for the victory of the party in the February 25 presidential polls.

The statement reads: “Since the campaign council began in September 2022, we have witnessed an unprecedented, relentless, and engaging mobilisation of our members nationwide and in the diaspora towards securing the majority popular votes for the Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket.

“The journey has been a worthy one with our hard-won victory. The credit goes to all our members, particularly, the leaders and members of various campaign directorates.

“We would like to express our deepest appreciation to President Buhari for his unwavering support and leadership throughout the campaign. We could not have achieved this level of success without his single-mindedness, commitment and forthrightness.

“However, we have concluded that it is in the best interest of the campaign and its stakeholders for us to dissolve our council with immediate effect. This has become necessary to return us towards the May 29, 2023, inauguration of the Bola Tinubu administration.

“The process of transitioning into a new era of ‘Renewed Hope’ is underway and all our energies and activities must reflect the principles underlying this process.”

While it admonished Nigerians to stay involved in the political process and advocate issues they believe in, the council added: “Nigeria’s democracy is stronger when we all participate in the political process with patriotism. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you, once again, for your support, dedication, and hard work.”
