APC postpones campaign kick-off: Meanwhile, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has indefinitely postponed its campaign kick-off slated for today.

On Tuesday, the Director-General Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Council and Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong in a statement announced that campaign activities will no longer start on Wednesday.

According to him, the campaign was postponed to create room for the inclusion of more party chieftains into the council.

PDP is ready: On the other hand, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lined up a series of events to commence its campaigns.

Part of the activities includes a book launch by the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku to sell himself to Nigerians.

The party said it is still consulting stakeholders on the composition of its presidential campaign council.

The party added that the campaign council and the manifesto of its presidential candidate would be announced after consultations.
