The All Progressives Congress has dissolved its Presidential Campaign Council.

The campaign council was set up in September 2022, ahead of the 2023 presidential election and was headed by the Plateau state Governor, Simon Bako Lalong as director general and Hon. James Faleke as Secretary.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, Bashir Ahmed, Special Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Digital Communications said on Sunday,

“Our great party, APC has dissolved its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) 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.

“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 a Renewed Hope is underway and all our energies and activities must reflect the principles underlying this process.

In the statement, 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 hard for the resounding victory of the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and vice-president Kashim Shettima.
