The Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress has clarified that the list of members of the campaign council released at the weekend is a partial list and that Senator Chimaroke Nnamani’s name on the list was not a mistake.
The statement released by the Council’s Director, Media and Publicity, Mr Bayo Onanuga said that the list contains only the directors, deputy directors, secretaries of directorates and key stakeholders while assuring Governors who had submitted nominees that the secretariat of the council has not jettisoned the names submitted by them.
He also said “Some of the nominees of our governors have emerged as part of the leadership, while others will soon emerge as members of the various directorates.”
The statement also specifically clarified that the appearance of the name of Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, a distinguished senator from Enugu State who is currently a member of the PDP was not a mistake and that the Senator is on the list in his own right as a supporter of presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“Distinguished Senator Chimaroke Nnamani, who is still away in the United States, is a very close friend of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu He may not be on the field with us as a PDP senatorial candidate in Enugu East, but his presence is indicative that he may have chosen to give ‘moral support’ to his old-time friend and brother.”
The statement further said “the PCC cannot dictate the extent of Senator Nnamani’s support for his friend and brother. That is part of his fundamental human right which supersedes any provision in a Party Constitution. His position and allegiance to his party is self-defining and does not need any qualifying by us. Any explanation as to his status should be coming from the other party and not from us who are very proud to be associated with him.”
