PDP denies appointment of new members into Presidential Campaign Council

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says it is yet to name further members of its Campaign Council for the 2019 presidential election.

The National Publicity Secretary of the party, Kola Ologbondiyan, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Mr Ologbondiyan said the party’s attention had been drawn to a phony post circulating in the social media and purporting that the party had released further names to make up its 2019 Presidential Campaign Council.

He said the fabricators of the post even went further to allocate offices to certain individuals, claiming same to be officially assigned by the leadership of the party.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the party has not released any further names other than those earlier released as members of the Presidential Campaign Council.

“Currently, the only names and offices assigned and released by the party are those of the Director-General and Zonal Coordinators of the 2019 Presidential campaign,’’ he said.

Ologbondiyan said those assigned offices were: The Senate President, Sen. Bukola Saraki, Director-General; Gov. Aminu Tambuwal as Zonal Coordinator, North-West; and Gov. Ibrahim Dankwambo, as Zonal Coordinator, North- East.

Others were: Gov. Samuel Ortom, Zonal Coordinator, North-Central; Gov. Nyesom Wike, Zonal Coordinator, South-South; Ayodele Fayose, Zonal Coordinator, South-West; and Gov. Dave Umahi, Zonal Coordinator South-East.

Also, Kabiru Tanimu Turaki, was appointed Chairman, Legal Matters, and Gov. Emmanuel Udom, Chairman, Fund Raising Committee.

The party cautioned that any other names being bandied around and purported to have emanated from the party should be discountenanced accordingly.

‘’Therefore, we urge all our members to remain calm and await further announcement by the National Working Committee of the party on the composition of the Campaign Council in due course,’’ he said.
