President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that his governance will not suffer because of the campaign for his reelection as his co-chairman and the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, will be fully in charge.
Buhari announced this while launching the APC Presidential Campaign Council at the Abuja International Conference Center on Monday.
He said: “Even though we have only 40 days, this campaign is going to task us all because we intend to touch all corners of our great and vast country. But I must also add that, though we will all be deeply involved, I would like to assure the nation that I will do my part without making governance or my work suffer.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, my co-chairman, will be fully in charge and is going to be on 24-hour vigil.
“That is to say, the operational buck of this campaign stops at his table, and I, therefore, urge all of us in the leadership of this campaign, in the field operations on the campaign trail and in the Secretariat to consult with Asiwaju whenever guidance is needed.
“It is on this note, and in the name of God, that I now have the pleasure of inaugurating the APC Presidential Campaign Council 2019.”
