It will, according to it, involves dinner with Campaign Patrons in Abuja and Calabar, Cross River State, town-hall meeting with Agro and Commodity groups in Niger State, Interfaith Townhall in Abuja and townhall with trade associations in Imo State.
The calendar also indicated that while South East campaign rally will be kick-started in Imo State in addition with Zonal Stakeholders’ meeting, Kwara State will host the North Central, Adamawa State, Ogun State, Edo and Sokoto States will host other zonal campaign rally.
Meanwhile, the PCC maintained that the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is the most equipped to carry on the positive legacies of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.
Director, Policy, Research and Strategy of the Tinibu/Shettima campaign council, Musa Babayo, made the remarks during the inauguration of the Directorate in Abuja on Thursday.
“The world has changed. Bola Tinibu, our candidate understands this and he is the most equipped to carry on the positive legacies of the Buhari administration while setting this country on an unassailable progressive path to development in the modern world and to being the most prosperous black nation on earth.
“The Tinibu/Shettima Manifesto “Hope Renewed” is the best campaign document and captures the hopes, aspirations and dreams of our country. It is holistic and it focuses on Nigeria as a whole. It provides a clear plan on job creation and repositioning the economy. But as we all know, in politics even 24 hours can be a lifetime.
“This Directorate must continue to do active Research to refine the campaign’s Policy positions as factors change in the run-up to the election. The Strategy of the campaign must be attune to the fast changing dynamics that happen in our polity. For example, the currency change recently announced by the Central Bank of Nigeria had not been in place when the manifesto was conceived. This event on currency has a Policy impact, needs Research on its impact on the campaign and will lead to Strategic adjustments,” Babayo, the Director noted.
