Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has said the party’s presidential campaign council will be inaugurated next week.
Naija News reports that Oshiomhole made this known on Wednesday during an appearance on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
He stated that the inauguration was earlier postponed due to the absence of President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the chairman and the Director-General of the council, Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State.
The Deputy Director-General of the council added that both leaders were in New York to attend the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
Oshiomhole, however, stated that the inauguration would be done next week after Governor Lalong returns to the country at the weekend.
