The attention of APC Governors has been drawn to reports in some media following the meeting of the APC Presidential Campaign Council of Thursday, January 10, 2019 suggesting that they (APC Governors) have shunned the meeting. This is false, fabrications and clearly a mischievous design for some cheap propaganda aimed at hoodwinking Nigerians into imagining any form of discord between APC Governors, its Presidential Campaign Council or the party leadership.
Just coming after the Tuesday, January 8, 2019 inauguration of the Council where virtually all APC Governors attended, any rational mind would have appreciated the compelling circumstances, which made it difficult for the Governors to be present at the Thursday’s meeting of the Council. Given that as Coordinators of the campaigns in their respective states and the zones, Governors are already saddled with the responsibility of organizing structures of the APC campaigns ahead of scheduled activities, and also given that the meeting of Thursday, January 1 0 was convened in response to the urgent need to consider detailed campaign programs, APC Governors regrettably missed the meeting with the commitment to the leadership of the Council that they endorse all decisions of the Council and accept all responsibilities that would be assigned to them.
On behalf of APC Governors, I therefore wish to emphatically state that all APC Governors are firmly united in their resolve to work tenaciously with the APC Presidential Campaign Council for the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari. Nigerians and in particular all APC members should regard all purported reports suggesting any discord between Governors and the Campaign Council as part of the habitual lies being fabricated in order to damage APC, its candidates at all levels and especially President Muhammadu Buhari in order to give life to the opposition.
