No Pressure On APC To Constitute Presidential Campaign Council – Keyamo

 

Keyamo Speaks On His Removal As APC Presidential Campaign Council Spokesman

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has said the All Progressives Congress (APC) is not under pressure to constitute its Presidential Campaign Council.

In an interview with Vanguard, Keyamo said the party is doing due diligence in carrying all stakeholders along and taking its time to constitute members of the council.

Keyamo said the actions and activities of the ruling party are dictated purely by its schedule of activities and not prompted by that of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The spokesman of the APC Presidential Campaign Council said the party has enough time to compose the team before the campaigns begin on September 28.

He said: “We are not under any pressure. Our actions and activities are not dictated or prompted by the actions and activities of the PDP that is collapsing day and night.

“Our actions are dictated purely by our schedule of activities and ability to carry all stakeholders along. We will let everybody know about our campaign council in due time. We still have enough time to do that before the campaigns start.”

No Cause For Alarm

Also speaking with the newspaper, a member of the APC National Working Committee (NWC), who craved anonymity, said the party is not in a rush to name the members of the council.

He said the party leadership would take its time than rush the entire process and make existential errors, saying that there is no cause for alarm.

“It is better to be late than to rush the entire process and make existential errors. In any case, we are not behind any timetable. Even after the lifting of the ban on campaigns, we can still unveil the full complement of our campaign council.

“There is no law that says we must unveil everything before the lifting of the ban. Besides, we already have a council in place. What remains is just to populate the directorates with relevant hands,” he said.
