APC gives reasons why governors were absent from party’s inaugural meeting



The All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained the absence of its governors at Thursday’s meeting of its Presidential Campaign Council at the State House in Abuja.

President Buhari presided over the inaugural meeting of the party’s campaign organization on Thursday in the absence of the governors who are members of the council.

The party reacted to questions regarding the absence of the governors after the meeting.

It said it was not mandatory for the state governors to attend the meeting which it said was only meant to design a timetable and the central messages of the campaign.

Speaking to State House correspondents, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, said the meeting was also not an inaugural one.

He disclosed that the council had met at least three times since it was inaugurated on Monday by President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said, “The agenda for the meeting had to do with drawing the timetable and deciding on the messaging.”

“It didn’t require everyone in the council to be present. Meanwhile, this is not the inaugural meeting.

“After the inauguration on Monday, there have been not less than three meetings of the council”, said Issa-Onilu.
