By Daily Metro NG

The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu; the President of the Senate President, Dr. Ahmad Lawan; members of the National Assembly; all governors of the Progressive Governors Forum (PGF) of the APC and other top leaders of the party across the country are expected in Benin City, the Edo State capital this weekend for the flag-off of the party’s governorship campaign.

In preparation for the rally, President Muhammadu Buhari has also invited the party’s candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu for a one-on-one discussion at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The party’s candidate, who has already gone to Abuja for the meeting with the president, was said to have met with members of the National Campaign Council for the Edo State governorship election on Monday.

Those who attended the meeting includes former Senate President, Dr. Ken Nnamani; Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State; Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State; Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State; and the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, among others.

“As part of the preparation for the flag-off of our rally in Benin City this Saturday, members of the campaign council met with our candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, on Monday night, to fine-tune the arrangement.

A member of the campaign council who spoke with Daily Metro NG, said, “Interestingly, the president has directed all APC governors to attend the rally; and our Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, will also lead members of the National Assembly to the event. In all the preparation, we are very mindful of the COVID-19 protocol.’’

The source also revealed that Buhari will not be at the rally due to COVID-19 protocol, but will be fully represented by a top government official.

The source said “President Muhammadu Buhari will not be at the rally. You know he has drastically reduced his public functions in the past few months because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But he will be represented by a senior government official. And the president has also invited Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu for a meeting ahead of the scheduled rally.”
