Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, has revealed what the Presidential Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, told state governors elected under the party when he met with them on Monday.

El-Rufai who spoke after the meeting revealed that a director-general has been picked for APC presidential campaign council and other positions in the council are being discussed.

According to Daily Post, the governor said the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), and the national chairman of the APC, Abdullahi Adamu, would be briefed before a formal announcement.

“We came to report on an assignment given to us by our Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and his running mate to begin the broad consultations and develop a structure for the presidential campaign council.

“We have briefed the candidate and his running mate and inputs have been taken. Our hope is that in the shortest possible time the candidate will consult more with the party leadership and brief Mr President and get his input, then we formally unveil the presidential campaign council.

“A decision has been taken on the director-general but other positions in the campaign council are still being discussed. The president, the national chairman and the national working committee will be briefed before a formal announcement,” El-Rufai said.

Tinubu’s running mate, Kashim Shettima, former Edo governor, Adams Oshiomhole, and the party’s national secretary, Iyiola Omisore, were present at the meeting.
