2023 Campaigns: Tinubu’s flag-off postponed



All Progressives Congress (APC) has postponed the flag-off of its 2023 presidential campaign earlier slated for tomorrow in Abuja, Sunday Vanguard has learned.

This happened on a day the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) confirmed that its presidential campaign will kick off tomorrow in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital.

The postponement of the APC campaign kick-off comes as indications emerged that since the arrival of the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, from London, high-level consultations were still being held among stakeholders.

Last week, a tripartite meeting of the APC governors, the APC Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, and the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee, NWC, was held at the party’s national secretariat.

The meeting was called by the party leadership to discuss the postponed zonal tour by the six National Vice Chairmen and also deliberate on modalities for the proposed ‘APC National Conference’ which it intends to convene before the end of the year.

The national conference is part of its campaign activities which is geared towards reeling out achievements of the party since 2015.

Sunday Vanguard gathered that the meeting also deliberated on the composition of the campaign council.

Director, of Media and Publicity of the APC Presidential Campaign Council, Mr Bayo Onanuga, told Sunday Vanguard that the campaign is a marathon and had already begun in Lagos, Katsina, Benue, Kogi and several other states.

Noting that it had already begun campaigns in several states of the country, he had announced the October 10 Abuja flag-off but was quick to add that the exercise would be dependent on when the party formally inaugurates its PCC. Although the council has not been inaugurated, its Women Wing has now been slated for inauguration tomorrow at the Presidential Villa.

Asked whether the campaign would still be flagged off tomorrow, Onanuga simply said:; “No sir”.


Meanwhile, the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, said at a media briefing, yesterday, that the presidential campaign at the party kicks off tomorrow in Uyo.

Ologunagba said, “Our Party is fully prepared for an issue-based campaign and our Presidential Candidate, H E. Atiku Abubakar and his running mate, H.E. Ifeanyi Okowa are fully ‘Articulated’ for the campaign.

“The PDP will take our campaign to all the States, Local Government Areas, Wards and Polling Units across the country under the Unified Campaign Structure as approved by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of our Party.

“Our Campaign will be people-driven and focused on PDP and H.E. Atiku Abubakar’s mission to Rescue, Rebuild and Redirect our nation from the abysmal misrule of the All Progressives Congress (APC)

“From our consultations across the six geo-political zones of the country, it is clear that Nigerians across the board, irrespective of religion, ethnicity and even political affiliations accept the PDP Presidential Candidate, H.E. Atiku Abubakar as the best Candidate with the practical experience, capacity, broad-mindedness and willpower to Unite our nation, Revamp our national economy, and guarantee the security of lives and property in our country.“

He expressed confidence that Nigerians were eager to go to the polls to vote for Atiku Abubakar as President because of his track record of achievements.

Lagos Governorship Elections: Rhodes-Vivour Takes Next Step After Tribunal Verdict

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Lagos, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour has announced his intention to appeal the verdict of the Lagos Governorship Elections Petitions Tribunal.

Rhodes-Vivour stated this in a press release on Tuesday while sharing his stance on the judgement.

He insisted that the essence of democracy not only lies in one’s ability to vote but also the capacity to defend the votes.

The essence of democracy lies not only in our ability to vote but also in our capacity to defend the integrity of that vote.

“Consequently, our laws allow Governorship candidates to challenge the decisions of the electoral tribunals at the Court of Appeal, and up to the Supreme Court. In light of this, my lawyers have been instructed to appeal this judgment, as we remain confident of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts,” he said.

While urging his supporters and Lagosians in general to remain calm, peaceful, and law-abiding, Rhodes-Vivour expressed the hope of getting substantial justice at the appellate courts.

“In these trying times, your unwavering support means the world to us, we must remain united, vigilant, and hopeful.

The ultimate victory may take time to come our way, but it is, we strongly believe inevitable as we have come to understand that the wheels or justice may sometimes grind slowly but it definitely grinds to a sure end,” the LP candidate added.

I’ll continue to fight – Atiku breaks silence on tribunal judgement




The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, has vehemently rejected the verdict of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).

We recall that PEPT on Wednesday struck out the petition filed by Atiku and his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, challenging the victory of President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 25 election.

The tribunal held that the petitions by the candidates and their parties lacked merit, upholding the election of Tinubu.

The judgement was delivered by the chairman of the tribunal, Justice Haruna Tsammani, assisted by other members of the panel, namely justices Monsurat Bolaji-Yusuf, Stephen Adah, Moses Ugo, and Abba Mohammed.

Reacting, Atiku, in a press conference in Abuja on Thursday, rejected the verdict, saying the battle to upturn Tinubu’s victory continues.

The former Vice President, who called himself a fighter, said he had instructed his legal team to file an appeal at the Supreme Court.

He said:

“I am here today to give my official reaction to the judgement delivered yesterday by the Presidential Election Petition Court on the 2023 presidential elections.

“As you already know, I approached the court following the declaration by the INEC that the APC and its candidate are the winners of the February 25 elections. My decision to go to court was anchored in my belief that the court is the sanctuary of justice.

“Indeed, I am no stranger to legal battles. I can say that I have a fair idea of how the court system works. All through my career as a politician, I have been a fighter, and I will continue to fight.

“Our aim of conducting credible elections in the country was compromised by INEC through the way it managed the presidential election.

“I am afraid that the judgement of the PEPT yesterday failed to restore confidence in our dream of free and fair elections devoid of human manipulation.

“I am here to tell you that though the judgement of the court yesterday is respected, it is a judgement that I refused to accept.

“I refuse to accept it because I believe it is devoid of substantial justice. I have asked my lawyers to constitutionally activate the guaranteed right to appeal in the higher court.”
