It was shocking that the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council list, which was released last week, was found to be made up of some Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Chieftains, who recently betrayed the party, by defecting to the APC
Media sources recalls that President Buhari had consistently blamed the PDP for mismanaging the nation’s economy, for 16 years.
It is shocking however, that it is the same set of people that Buhari claimed destroyed and looted the treasury of the nation, that now make up the APC Presidential Campaign Council for the 2019 elections.
Does it mean that the former PDP Chieftains are now saints, for defecting to the ruling APC?
Why did President Buhari decide to flood his campaign team with former PDP Members, who allegedly ruined the economy, according to him?
News men took time out to thoroughly go through the list, and discovered that most of the APC Presidential Campaign Council members were formerly in the PDP.
See our list below:
Vice Chairman, North – Senator George Akume (PDP Governor for 8 years)
Vice Chairman, South – Senator Ken Nnamani (former Senate President under the PDP)
Director General – Rotimi Amaechi (8 years Speaker, and 7 years Governor under the PDP)
North-West Zonal Director – Aliyu Wammakko (PDP Governor for 8 years, and Senator for 3 years)
South-West Zonal Director – Olusola Oke (former PDP National Legal Adviser for 9 years)
South-South Zonal Director – Godswill Akpabio (former SSG, former PDP Governor for 8 years, and until recently, the PDP Minority Leader in the 8th Senate).
