Meanwhile, the presidential campaign council upon its release was packed with a long list of powerful political figures which furthers help strengthen the chances of the ruling party to retain the seat of power in 2023.
President Muhammadu Buhari leads the pack with the combination of Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Senator Kashim Shettima taking the subordinate roles as the deputies of the presidential campaign council.
Another major surprise in the list is the inclusion of former Osun state governor and current minister of interior, Rauf Aregbesola. Despite the rumored rift between him and Bola Tinubu, he was included in the PCC list.

Although there is no explanation for his omission at present, his omission from the list likely dates back to the rumored rift at the presidential primaries where Osinbajo contested against Bola Ahmed Tinubu, widely regarded as his mentor.
