APC dissolves Tinubu-Shettima campaign council


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) inaugurated last year to prosecute the ruling party’s 2023 presidential election.
The dissolution was contained in a statement issued during the Weekend in Abuja and jointly signed by the Director General of the APC PCC, Governor Simon Bako Lalong and the Secretary of the council, James Abiodun Faleke.
The party on behalf of the chairman of the Presidential Campaign Council, President Muhammadu Buhari; the president-elect, Bola Tinubu and other leaders, thanked all council members, leaders and supporters for working assiduously for the resounding victory of the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
The signatories, in the dissolution statement, had thanked the members for their immense contributions in mobilising the Nigerian electorate to give the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the desired votes that secured victory for him and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.
Singling out President Muhammadu Buhari for special commendations, the leadership of the PCC noted that it is in the best interest of the campaign and its stakeholders to dissolve the council with immediate effect.
They further explained that the dissolution has become necessary to retune them towards the May 29, 2023, inauguration of the President-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.
“Since the campaign council began in September 2022, we have witnessed an unprecedented, relentless, and engaging mobilisation of our members nationwide and in the diaspora towards securing the majority popular votes for the Tinubu/Shettima presidential ticket.
“The journey has been a worthy one with our hard-won victory. The credit goes to all our members particularly, the leaders and members of the various campaign directorates.
“We would like to express our deepest appreciation to President Buhari, for his unwavering support and leadership throughout the campaign. We could not have achieved this level of success without his single-mindedness, commitment, and forthrightness.
“However, we have concluded that it is in the best interest of the campaign and its stakeholders for us to dissolve our council with immediate effect. This has become necessary to retune us towards the May 29, 2023, inauguration of the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.
“The process of transitioning into a new era of a Renewed Hope is underway and all our energies and activities must reflect the principles underlying this process.
“We hope that you will all continue to stay involved in Nigeria’s political process and to advocate for issues that you believe in. Our democracy is stronger when we all participate in the political process with patriotism. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your support, dedication, and hard work,” the statement read.
