Unic Press UK: The governors’ elected under the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform shunned the presidential campaign council meeting of the party during the inaugural meeting of the council, which was held on Thursday.
The meeting was chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari.
When the APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole was asked the reasons the governors’ abstained from a very important meeting of the APC presidential campaign council, he claimed the governors’ are busy in their various states.
“Don’t forget that elections are not defined in Abuja, it will take place in the 36 states and I am sure there are APC members who are campaigning for the House of Assembly, various federal house and senate constituencies, governorship constituencies. So it will not be helpful to bring them to Abuja. Here, it is about policies, it will be consummated and translated to practice across the 36 states, 774 local governments and wards,” Premium Times reports quoting Oshiomhole.
Nigeria General Election 2019 would hold on Saturday, 16 February 2019, from 08:00 A M (Lagos time).
