Ahead of the 2019 general elections, the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, his health counterpart, Isaac Adewole, former Senate President, Senator Ken Nnamani, a former governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor Kalu and some members of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday launched the South-West campaign office for President Muhammadu Buhari.
The campaign office is located at Mokola, Ibadan.
However, Governor Abiola Ajimobi, other South-West governors, the leadership of APC in the region and members of the executive council of the state were absent at the event.
The Minister of Communication noted that what Buhari has done in two and half years, the past administration of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was not able to do it in 16 years, adding that Buhari has created jobs for over 200,000 people in Nigeria.
The Minister of Health emphasised unity and the need for eligible voters to ensure that they have their permanent voters’ cards.
Nnamani said the party needed to maintain internal decorum which is the only way to win the forthcoming general elections.
A former governor of Abia State, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, warned that the lingering rift between Oyo State governor and Minister of Communication may spell doom for the APC in the state during the 2019 general elections if the party’s national body fails to broker peace.
