2019 Elections: Buhari hands over campaign to Tinubu, says he doesn’t want governance to suffer

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will now lead the party’s campaigns for the February general elections as against President Muhammadu Buhari, who is the Chairman of the APC Campaign Council.

Buhari stated this on Monday while inaugurating the campaign council.

The President said the reason was that he didn’t want governance to suffer because of elections.

Tinubu and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo are Co-Chairmen of the Council and by original plan, were to deputise the President, who ordinarily should lead the campaigns.

But on Monday, Buhari handed over that responsibility to Tinubu and said he didn’t want governance to suffer.

Buhari inaugurated the council at the International Conference Centre Abuja, an event that had the National Chairman of the party, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, ministers and governors in attendance.
