All newly appointed members of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council have been directed to show up at the PCC headquarters in Abuja for ‘special prayers’ ahead of Wednesday's election campaign.
The development is contained in a statement released in the early hours of Monday by the Director of Media and Publicity for Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga.
Chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari, the campaign council has Bola Tinubu and APC National Chairman Abdullahi Adamu as co-deputy chairmen.
Punch reports that at least 24 Nollywood stars are part of the performing arts directorate and they include notable Nollywood stars such as Zack Orji, Jide Kosoko, Saheed Balogun, Foluke Daramola, Nuhu Abdullahi, Bimbo Akintola and Fatiha Balogun, among others.
“The All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council wishes to inform all members nominated to serve in the various directorates to report at the campaign headquarters on Wednesday 28 September 2022 at 8.00 am.
“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns.
“There will be a Peace Walk immediately after the prayers. All nominees will be issued their letters of appointment on the same day.
“On behalf of the Chairman of the campaign council, President Muhammadu Buhari, our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima, we congratulate all members of the campaign council.
