“Let me inform you, we are in unison on the appointment of the principal officers of the campaign council like the director general and the spokesperson. Every other name included in that organigram is considered to be work in progress subject to further engagement, which is yet to happen because it is an ongoing process.

“The party believes the engagement will crystallise into fruition very soon. There is no difference between the candidate and the chairman of our party. We are on the same page.

“Consultations is still going on and the party is working on the organigram of the campaign council to be sure it is party led. We want to ensure critical stakeholders across board are carried along to ensure we have a winning campaign council.

“What is going on now is the discussion over the population of the campaign council. We want to be sure we perfect the list. We want to ensure we bring in people that will help us drive the campaign which the chairman of the party is on top of the consultation. I want to reassure you it will be party led.

“Let me inform you, the party will soon hold a consultative meeting with members of the progressive governors and other critical stakeholders before the comprehensive list of the council will be approved,” an NWC member told Daily Sun.

Clearing the air further, another member of the leadership said: “We have not finalised the composition because we are negotiating and once agreement is reached, we will announce it to the public. No one can rush us. There is no delay and we cannot allow media to cause crisis that does not exist.

“Yes, there is disagreement but it does not mean there is crisis. Politics is about disagreement. We are negotiating. Campaign is starting by September ending and I want to assure Nigerians all these things will be sorted out before that time. September is out target and we will let the public know when we are ready,” he said.
