APC presidential campaign council: New names surface in final list
In the final list released, the first top positions were not altered as President Buhari retained his position as chairman, while APC national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Timubu, equally maintained their position as deputy chairman 1 and 2 respectively.
Similarly, Governor Lalong maintained his position as the DG of the campaign, Daily Trust stated.
