Why Tinubu Shifted Anambra, Imo Presidential Campaigns From Mondays – Keyamo

The Chief Spokesman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Festus Keyamo, has confirmed that the dates for the campaign rallies scheduled to hold in Anambra and Imo States have been moved.

Naija News earlier reported that the APC Presidential Campaign Council shifted the dates in a revised timetable and schedule of activities released on Friday night.

The Council stated that the rally and zonal stakeholders’ meeting earlier scheduled to hold in Imo State on Monday, November 21, was shifted to Tuesday.

While the rally slated to hold in Anambra state on Monday, January 30, was also moved to Tuesday.

Reacting to the development in a chat with The Punch, Keyamo said the dates were shifted due to some reason and not because of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Keyamo said the APC will not be giving life to non-state actors who are bent on destroying the economy of the South East and the country.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment said the plan of the ruling party is to campaign across the country for its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shettima.

Keyamo, therefore, maintained that the timetable was a working draft that could be amended anytime by the council.

He said, “That is not true. We are not running away from anybody or a group. As I earlier told you, the timetable is just a working document that can be amended anytime.

“As the ruling party, our plan is to cover the entire country. We should not be seen as giving oxygen to non-state actors.”
