In a statement made available to newsmen late on Monday, Chairman of the APC National Campaign Council and governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong said the event would now hold an a later date.

He said the postponement was done to include many other stakeholders who would want to be part of the campaign team.

Lalong wrote; “Recall that we had earlier earmarked a peace walk and prayers for Wednesday, September 28, 2022, to  officially kick-off our campaigns for the 2023 Presidential Elections. We had also announced that the members of the Campaign Council report at the Campaign Headquarters on that day to collect their letters of appointments.

 

“However, due to the expansion of the list to accommodate more stakeholders and interests within the APC family, we have decided to adjust the time-table of these activities in order to ensure everyone is on board before activities officially commence. Consequently, the activities earlier announced for the 28th of September will no longer hold.

“A new date and time-table of events will be announced soon”.
