Seven governors, Secretary to the Government of the Federation(SGF), George Akume, Senate President Godswill Akpabio, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, Benjamin Kalu and two ministers are to lead the All Progressives Congress(APC) governorship campaigns in Kogi, Bayelsa and Imo states.
GovernorBabajide Sanwo-Olu (Lagos), Dapo Abiodun (Ogun), Umar Bago (Niger), and Uba Sani (Kaduna) will be co-chairing a team of 135 members for Kogi.
Governors Bassey Otu(Cross River), Francis Nwifuru(Ebonyi), Kalu and Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Nkeiruka Onyejeocha, are to jointly head a 138-member council for Imo State.
It appears that a 123-member team for Bayelsa State will have co-chairs including Governor Muhammad Yahaya of Gombe State, along with Akume, Akpabio, and Defence Minister Mohammed Badaru. This suggests a joint effort involving these individuals to oversee matters or projects related to Bayelsa State.
APC’s National Organising Secretary Sulaiman Argungu said yesterday that the ruling party’s National Working Committee (NWC) approved the three campaign councils after consultations.
Argungu explained that no date has been fixed for the inauguration of the members of the councils.
The governorship elections in the three states will hold on November 11.
