APC UK inaugurates presidential campaign council for Bola Tinubu
A council has been established by the All Progressives Congress (APC) United Kingdom Chapter to oversee the Asiwaju Bola Tinubu presidential campaign in the UK in the year 2023.
The chapter's publicity secretary, Jacob Ogunseye, made this announcement in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
According to him, Joseph Adebola, a seasoned attorney, would serve as the council's chairman, while Patrick Oleh would work as a secretary.
He claimed that Ade Omole, the head of the APC UK, had urged the council members to view the task at hand as significant and something that had to be finished.
Omole said the campaign council would work with other Diaspora support groups and align itself with the party’s directives from Nigeria.
He said the terms of reference of the council include overall coordination of the APC UK presidential campaign activities.
He added that this included but was not limited to drawing up a UK-wide campaign timetable, itinerary and liaison with respective APC UK campaign committees.
He said that Adebola, chairman of the council, had promised to bring his wealth of experience into work with other members of the APC Diaspora chapters.
This, he said, is to ensure Tinubu’s victory and that of his running mate, Sen. Kashim Shettima in the 2023 presidential election.
“I am confident of the support of my members, we supported our great party in 2015, and 2019 and several governorship elections in Nigeria which led to a sound electoral victory.
“As previously delivered, we will leave no stone unturned in delivering our principal. APC’s victory in the forthcoming election is sacrosanct.
“We will reach out to all our Diaspora progressives and mobilise Nigerians in the United Kingdom to reach out to their families and peers in Nigeria,” Adebola said.
He described Tinubu as a household name and a sellable personality with good track records following his antecedence as a two-term former governor of Lagos State.
Adebola said members of the council and Nigerians in the Diaspora generally could not afford to miss such an opportunity to rebuild Nigeria with Tinubu as president.
He said Dr Mustapha Abdullahi would serve as Deputy Chairman of the council, while Jacob Ogunseye would serve as its Publicity Secretary.
Other members are: Mrs Carolyn Adelakun, Hajiya Rakiya Abubakar, Mrs Ifeoma Onochie-Faruk, Ms Edith Nwachukwu, Mrs Kikelomo Oladapo, Obi Madubuobi, Joseph Fadele, Oluseun Baiyewu, Udeme Ukpe and Oladapo Habeeb.
