The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council spokesman, Festus Keyamo said the delay in its campaign kick-off was to ensure that all necessary ingredients associated with the campaigns are captured.
Keyamo said this when he spoke with newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, after a meeting of the PCC, the APC National Working Committee, and the Progressives Governors Forum, according to Vanguard.
“Part of the structure of our campaign involves a presidential diary, our campaign is not like those who have done kick and start with their small vehicles.
“Our campaign is like manoeuvring a 50-tonne trailer into the highway and once we hit the road, we hit the road.
“So that is what we are doing, the president is the chairman of the campaign council, we are going to take his diary into consideration in picking and choosing the day.
“But, we have virtually agreed that we are going to hit the streets very soon, we have agreed on the region we are going to begin from and on all other basic issues,” he said.
Keyamo said that the APC PCC wanted to carry the president along as the leader of the party.
He said that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC presidential candidate presented a draft copy of his manifesto to stakeholders at the meeting.
“Our candidate is not one that operates on his own, he tries to carry everybody along and today, he presented the draft copy of his manifesto to all the party’s stakeholders and it was accepted by nearly everyone,” he said.
