The Presidency says Alhaji Aliko Dangote, who is not a card-carrying member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC)
This is coming following the names of APC Presidential Campaign Council that was released on Friday.
Mr. Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, made the clarification in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
The statement read:
“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.’’
