2023: PDP NEC approves presidential campaign structure, silent on leadership


Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) National Executive Committee (NEC), yesterday, approved the structure of its 2023 presidential campaign council. However, the party organ was silent on the leadership of the campaign.

The PDP spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, while briefing journalists on the outcome of the NEC meeting,  said it was part of resolutions reached by party.

However, Ologunagba explained that NEC empowered the National Working Committee (NWC) to populate the council, in consultation with the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar and other stakeholders.

He dismissed speculations that chairman of the PDP Governors Forum, Aminu Tambuwal, has been appointed as director general of the presidential campaign council, saying: “It is not true as at this time.”

Ologunagba also said  it is not true that Tambuwal has resigned as chairman of the PDP Governors Forum. According to him, “it is not true as this time. I have no information thank he has resigned. And  If he has resigned, I will be in the best position to know. Right now, there are procedures to resignation. When the BoT chairman, it was communicated. Those are speculations. Wait until he resigns, then we will let you know.”
