There is tension in the All Progressives Congress (APC), as the presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, removed the names of members of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) nominated by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Tinubu, by deliberate machination, allegedly overrode President Muhammadu Buhari, his party leadership and progressives governors in the composition of the council.
The council, which was originally structured around the presidential candidate, the party and the president, was meant to be driven by the governors as they are expected to lead the campaigns in their respective states
Sources revealed that Tinubu, the party and the progressives governors, had perfected the composition of an inclusive campaign council before they agreed that President Buhari should add his input, if there is any, as a mark of respect.
Buhari was said to have not just welcomed the idea but did as expected of him by making a few inputs.
Buhari was apparently deferring to his late friend and running mate, Chuka Okadigbo, but in the same vein, putting the interest of the Southeast into the council. The former Lagos state governor, who has earlier consented to the council list before it was taken to Buhari, removed Okadigbo’s name and, in her place, put the only female presidential aspirant of the APC, Uju Ken Ohanenye, who stepped down for him during the primary in Abuja.
