It has been reported that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) will announce 28th September as date to commence its 2023 presidential campaign.
This is as the party hopes to convince Nigerians to vote for its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
A source in the party that spoke with Tribune noted that an emergency meeting of NEC is in view to renew its authority conceded to the Adamu-led NWC.
He said, “With the expiration of the three months power transfer since July 22, the NWC can no longer take vital decisions on behalf of the party without the approval of the NEC and in view of this constitutional reality, some NWC members are pushing for an emergency NEC meeting.
“Barring a last-minute change, tomorrow’s (Wednesday) weekly NWC will have to discuss the development with a view to fixing a date for an emergency NEC meeting before the commencement of the presidential campaign which is billed to start on September 28, 2022.”
