Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has appointed Aminu Masari, governor of Katsina, as an adviser for the party’s campaign council.
The former Lagos state governor also appointed Aliyu Wamakko, former governor of Sokoto, as a senior adviser on special duties for the presidential campaign council.
Tinubu stated that appointing Masari and Wamakko to the campaign council is a result of their “impressive” political achievements and exemplary leadership.
“This appointment is fitting and appropriate given your impressive political achievement and the exemplary leadership you have demonstrated as governor of your state and as a party member.
“We are grateful that you have joined our campaign team. We know you will do your utmost in this new responsibility.”
“By way of this letter, we are pleased to formally convey your appointment as the Special Adviser on Administration and Government of the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council,” the letter to Masari reads.
Tinubu also stated that the council needs to foster unity to ensure victory for the party in the 2023 general election.
He added that if elected, his government would build on the achievements of President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration in providing good governance to Nigerians.
