The All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed the inauguration of its 422- member presidential campaign council (PCC) originally billed to hold from Monday to Wednesday.
Bayo Onanuga, APC director of media and Publicity, made this known in a statement on Sunday.
According to Onanuga, the members are also expected to participate in a “special prayer session” to usher in the presidential election campaign.
“The APC Presidential Campaign Council wishes to inform all members nominated to serve in the various directorates to report at the campaign headquarters on Wednesday Sept. 28, 2022 at 8 a.m,” the statement reads
“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns.”
Onanuga said there would be a peace walk immediately after the prayers, and that all nominees would be issued their letters of appointment on the same day.
He congratulated members of the campaign council, saying it was a call to serve the party with total commitment and sacrifice.
“We know this is a call to serve our great party that will demand total commitment and sacrifice from all of us,” he said.
“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 the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).”
He said the APC and the candidates acknowledge the hard work and the financial and human resources that has been voluntarily expended.
Onanuga asked the support groups to continue their good work.
He encouraged other groups yet to formally register with the PCC to do so immediately for proper harmonisation.
