The All Progressives Congress, APC has revealed the main reason why the name of Vice President, Yemi Osibanjo was omitted from it’s presidential campaign council.

Focus Naija can report that the absence of his name had caused raised eyebrows within some political circles, citing bad blood as reason for the omission.

According to a press statement issued by the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council and signed by it’s Chief Spokesperson, Hon. Festus Keyamo, the name of the Vice President and the Secretary-General of the Federation, Boss Mustapha were omitted on the orders of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said that the President being chairman of the campaign council ordered that the duo be left out to concentrate on governance and administration of the country.

He stated that it is irresponsible for all key functionaries to abandon their duties for electioneering campaigns, that there’s no cause for alarm.

The statement reads in full;

PRESS RELEASE BY THE TINUBU/SHETTIMA PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN COUNCIL

ABSENCE OF VICE-PRESIDENT YEMI OSINBAJO FROM CAMPAIGN COUNCIL LIST NO CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Our attention has been drawn to some stories making the rounds that there may be something amiss within the family of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the name of our own revered and respected Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, is not included in the list of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

Nothing can be farther from the facts. For the avoidance of doubt, President Muhammadu Buhari , GCFR, is the Chairman of the Campaign Council. As a result, Mr. President has SPECIFICALLY directed that the Vice-President and the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Mr. Boss Mustapha should be left out of the Campaign Council to concentrate on the governance of the country and administration of Government. As a responsible Party and Government, all the key functionaries of government cannot abandon their positions for electioneering campaigns. The APC has the mandate of the Nigerian people to administer the country on their behalf at least till May, 29, 2023, and this we intend to do with all sense of responsibility.

We will not toe the path of those who governed the country in an irresponsible manner before us and our Party is not in total disarray like those who wish to ‘rescue’ the country, but cannot simply manage their own internal affairs.

Thank you.

FESTUS KEYAMO, SAN, FCIArb(UK)

Director of Public Affairs and
Chief Spokesperson
Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council.

Hon. Minister of State,
Labour and Employment.
