Members calling my phone for campaign inclusion – APC spokesman

The ruling All Progressives Congress says the secretariat has been inundated with calls from party supporters who have been asking to be included in the composition of the newly constituted campaign council.

This was disclosed by National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka when he appeared on Arise Television on Tuesday.

Morka made the statement while fielding questions on the postponement of the presidential campaign council and delay in the campaign kick-off of the APC.

He said, “My phone is constantly buzzing with people trying to get involved in the unit and up to the ward, local government and state levels. So, what we did was not just at the national level. That is not what really matters. But at the unit level, people are filled with this enthusiasm to get involved.

“We are taking our time. And within a few days, we will get it right. By the way, I think we are actually entitled to take a bit of our moment to really fine-tune how the process as the largest party on this continent. And I think there is something that needs to be said about that where anyone at the unit level like me comes from Delta State.

“It is a centralized approach that is what our party is interested in so as to accommodate more people who are keen to get involved in this effort to compete and win the presidency of this country in the election come next year.”

The composition of the 422-man campaign list has come under scrutiny in recent times with some APC governors, especially Governors Ben Ayade of Cross River and AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq of Kwara State, reportedly not happy with it.

The governors were said to have expressed shock over the exclusion of their nominees after the painstaking efforts they took to identify potential candidates who could mobilise support and deliver votes for the party in the 2023 polls.

They were said to have tabled their grievances with the Chairman of the Progressive Governors Forum and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu and the national chairman of the APC, Adamu.

This has led to calls for the list to be expanded to accommodate more members of the party who have been bombarding the ruling party and the campaign offices of the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, in Abuja.
