Governor Abubakar Badaru of Jigawa State will Head the Special intervention Sub-committee, while Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, will chair the Security Committee.
Buni charged the campaign council to ensure Senator Andy Uba emerges victorious in the poll. Urging the council to reconcile persons aggrieved over the outcome of the Anambra State Governorship primary, he expressed optimism that Anambra would join the rank of APC States after the poll.
He said: “I am glad to say with a sense of satisfaction that the growing fortunes of the party in Anambra State and the southeast geopolitical zone, in general, has increased our hope for victory. This will no doubt increase our chance of winning the election with a landslide victory.
“May I call on the Committee to concentrate on issues that will add value to the success of the party and avoid issues that may distract us from the path of victory. We should remain resolute, committed, and law-abiding throughout the assignment and beyond.”
