Reasons Why All APC Governors Were Absent From Buhari's Presidential Campaign Council Meeting

In its formal reaction to the absence of the governors at the meeting, National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Issa-Onilu, said the meeting was not an inaugural one even as he claimed that the governors had attended at least three previous meetings.

According to Him:

“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.”

Campaign spokesman, Mr. Keyamo also dismissed negative insinuations to the absence of the governors as he told Vanguard that there were communication gaps between the campaign and the governors even as he said that it was not an issue.

“There is no fuss over the issue, in fact, I can say that it was a matter of communication gap and their absence has no negative connotation.”

Speaking after the meeting yesterday, former Senate Minority leader and immediate past governor of Akwa Ibom State, Senator Godswill Akpabio said that his former party, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP had nothing except criticism to campaign with.

“I will say that APC is very poised not just to undertake very smooth and scintillating and enjoyable campaign but also very poised to win the next election. 

“As you are aware, so far so good, we are running on the basis of our first term performance. 

“The achievements of Mr. President are all there for people to see and I think the entire country is quite excited quite unlike our colleagues in the PDP who do not seem to have anything except to criticize, attempt to run campaigns of calumny and false accusations against us in the APC. 

“Today (Thursday) we are meeting to restrategize and conclude, dot the ‘i’s and cross the ‘t’s in the campaign structure so that we can come out with not just a formidable campaigns across the country but also sensitive our people in terms of voter education, we are ready for it.”
