APC Dissolves Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council

The Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council that was inaugurated in October 2022 for the campaign of its presidential candidate Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima has now been dissolved by the ruling  All Progressive Congress.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has dissolved its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

This was also revealed in a statement jointly signed by Plateau State Governor and Director-General of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), Simon Lalong and its Secretary, James Faleke, on behalf of the chairman of the council, the party on behalf of the chairman of the council, President Muhammadu Buhari.

The dissolution comes some weeks after the 2023 presidential election and the announcement of results which saw the APC Presidential Candidate (now president-elect) through.

The committee thanked President Muhammadu Buhari for his support during campaigning and all its members along with supporters of the party for working for the victory of the party’s presidential candidate.

The statement read, “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 Muhammadu Buhari (GCFR), 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 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.”

Also, Bashir Ahmad, the Special Assistant to President Buhari on Digital Communications, tweeted the news on Sunday, saying, “Our great party, APC has dissolved its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) that was inaugurated last year to prosecute the 2023 presidential election. The dissolution was contained in a statement jointly signed by the DG of the Council, Gov Simon Lalong and the Secretary, Hon James Faleke.
