The All Progressives Congress, APC, has explained why it listed a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator, representing Enugu East Senatorial District, Chimaroke Nnamani, as a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council, PCC.
According to the APC, Senator Nnamani believes in the ruling party.
The lawmaker, who was elected on the platform of the PDP, was among those listed in the campaign council 422-man list
Reacting to the news currently making the rounds, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Felix Morka, told Channels TV that Tinubu enjoys support beyond the APC and it is not unusual for the “cross-party alignment”.
According to him, the presidential campaign is not necessarily about party membership, stating that the campaign is about support for an individual’s favourite candidate.
He said, “People who believe in the candidate are very free to work for the candidate that they support.
“Our candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is a candidate that enjoys widespread multi-partisan support.
“The support for our candidate is not limited to APC members only; he enjoys support from others who know him and who trust in his ability to deliver.”
