The campaign team of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council has directed all the newly appointed 422 members for ‘special prayers’ at the PCC headquarters in Abuja.
Tinubu And Shettima Begins Campaign With Special Prayers
Last Friday, the APC presidential campaign council released a 422-man list of nominees containing names of political heavyweights including governors, ministers, lawmakers, ambassadors as well as serving and past public office holders.
In a statement on Monday, the Director of Media and Publicity for Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga said the 422 members were invited for special prayer sessions to officially commence the 2023 electioneering process on Wednesday.
Onanuga also used the opportunity to invite the new PCC nominees to pick up their letters of appointment and actively participate in the Peace Walk to show solidarity for the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The statement read, “The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council wishes to inform all members nominated to serve in the various directorates to report at the campaign headquarters on Wednesday 28 September 2022 at 8.00 am.
“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns.
“There will be a Peace Walk immediately after the prayers. All nominees will be issued their letters of appointment same day.
“On behalf of the Chairman of the campaign council, President Muhammadu Buhari, our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, we congratulate all members of the campaign council.
“We know this is a call to serve our great party that will demand total commitment and sacrifice from all of us. It is the council’s strong belief that all members will work hard to deliver a resounding victory for our great party in the 2023 Presidential election.
“We also want to use this medium to express our profound gratitude to all support groups registered with the campaign council. We are aware you have been working assiduously to promote our candidates and the party across the 36 states and FCT.
“The party and the candidates acknowledge your hard work and great financial and human resources that have been voluntarily expanded since we began this journey. We urge you to continue your good work. The PCC will work with the support groups as we move along into the campaign season.
“We encourage other groups yet to formally register with the PCC to do so immediately for proper harmonisation.”
KanyiDaily recalls that the spokesman for the APC presidential council, Festus Keyamo revealed that Buhari directed that Osinbajo should be left out of Tinubu’s campaign council list.
