In a revised timetable for the APC Presidential Campaign just released, it was revealed that President Buhari has shown further personal commitment to the cause of the party and its flag-bearer in the 2023 Presidential election, by indicating his readiness to be physically present at some of the forthcoming presidential campaign rallies of the party.
This was contained in a press statement released on Thursday, 5 January, 2023, by the Director of Public Affairs and Chief Spokesperson for the APC PCC, who also doubles as Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN.
According to him, “recall that Mr. President, out of his very busy schedule, had earlier attended the flag-off of the Presidential Campaign in Jos on 15 November, 2022. This was also after graciously accepting to be the Chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council of the ruling party”.
However in the revised campaign schedule, the President has indicated his intention to be physically present in at least 10 states when the campaign train hits the state.
The states are: Adamawa State on Monday, 9 January; Yobe State on Tuesday, 10 January; Sokoto State on Monday, 16 January; Kwara State on Tuesday, 17 January; Ogun State on Wednesday, 25 January; Cross Rivers State on Monday, 30 January; Nassarawa State on Saturday, 4 February; Katsina State on Monday, 6 February; Imo State on Saturday, 14 February and the Grand Finale in Lagos State on Saturday, 18 February, 2023.
“The PCC expresses its profound gratitude to President Buhari, the leader of our great Party, for his sterling and inspirational leadership at this time and for galvanising our teeming members and supporters across the country.
“We urge our party faithfuls and supporters to turn out en masse, as usual, in the forthcoming campaign rallies. The zero hour is nigh; our spirits must be high; we must not relent in this our collective march to our victory that is divinely ordained,” Keyamo said.
