He said, “We are here to see Mr President to brief him and to get his approval of plans that we are having regarding our campaign outfit. And once we have his approval, we intend to make major disclosure. We’re on the same page with the Presidential and the individuals who will play various roles in the campaign.”
Adamu further explained that the choice of Lalong was based on his ability to do the work required to ensure victory for the Tinubu-Shettima ticket in next year’s presidential elections.
“We have a spokesperson in the person of Festus Keyamo. The deputy spokesperson is Hannatu Musawa. This is what we came to discuss with the President. He has the ability to do it. The party leadership has seen that he is capable of running the affairs of the campaign outfit,” the APC Chairman noted.
