    The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied appointing President Muhammadu Buhari chairman of its presidential campaign council

    The party also refuted a list of members of the council currently circulating on the social media.

    Bayo Onanuga, the director of media and publicity of the campaign Council in a statement on Friday described the list as fake and urged the public to disregard it

    A social media on friday reported that
    the APC presidential campaign council has designated Buhari as chairman with Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential candidate as deputy chairman I and Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman, deputy chairman II.

    According to the report, Governor Badaru Abubakar of Jigawa state is appointed the regional coordinating Chairman- North, while Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi will be in charge of South.

    It added that: “Kebbi State Governor and Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) chairman, Atiku Bagudu, and Sen. Godswill Akpabio will be vice chairmen. Others appointed as vice chairmen include the APC vice presidential candidate, Sen. Kashim Shettima and Bar. Uju Kennedy, who was the only female presidential aspirant of the party during the June 2022 special national convention/primary.

    “Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong who had been appointed Director General of the Tinubu/Shettima 2023 Presidential Election Campaign, will be heading other portfolios as indicated in the campaign structure as agreed on by the progressive governors and the candidates.

    “Others include: Comrade Adams Oshiomole as deputy director-general (Operations); Hadiza Bala usman, deputy director-general (Admin); Hon James Faleke (Secretary); and Christopher Takar who will serve as Deputy Secretary.”

    But, Onanuga said the leadership of APC and the presidential candidate, Tinubu will formally unveil the campaign council in due time.

    He noted that: “the party understands the interest of the general public in the APC and its presidential candidate and urged the media to exercise  more restraint in dissemination of information that are not correct.”

    He quoted the secretary of APC presidential campaign council, Faleke, as saying, the various directorates of the campaign structure are still being put together in consultation with the APC stakeholders.
