The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council has postponed the kick-off of its campaign earlier slated for Wednesday, September 28.

The sudden change was disclosed on Tuesday, September 8 by the Director-General, of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council and Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong.

According to the statement, the move was to enable some adjustments to the timetable to expand the campaign council list to accommodate more stakeholders.

He added that a new date will be announced in due course.

The statement read; “Recall that we had earlier earmarked a peace walk and prayers for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, to officially kick-off our campaigns for the 2023 Presidential Elections.

“We had also announced that the members of the Campaign Council report at the Campaign Headquarters on that day to collect their letters of appointments.

“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the time-table of these activities in order to ensure everyone is on board before activities officially commence.

“Consequently, the activities earlier announced for the 28th of September will no longer hold”.

MyNigeria cannot confirm if the latest action is connected with the reported protest by the APC governors over the campaign list.
