APC AMAC chairmanship candidate makes ’U’ turn

Candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, for Abuja Municipal Area Council in the April 9, rescheduled area council polls, Hon. A.A. Candido and his running mate, Hon. Lawrence, have reconsidered their decision to remove the photograph of President Muhammadu Buhari from their campaign posters. 

Before now, it was reported that some APC candidates in the six area councils of the Federal Capital Territory had removed the picture of the president from their campaign posters in view of the harsh economic situation believed to be occasioned by the present administration. 

Though, some candidates through their spokespersons have denied the media report, but investigation by our correspondent revealed that the state secretariat of the party has directed all candidates of the party to print fresh campaign posters with the photograph of the president before the rescheduled elections. 

Further investigation has shown that the chairmanship candidate of the party for AMAC, Hon. Candido was the first to reproduce the new campaign posters with President Buhari's photo occupying a large portion of the posters. 

Our correspondent also gathered that the campaign posters which are littered around major parts of Garki and the suburbs with the inscription, "100% Support for Candido/Onuchukwu Ticket", are the new campaign posters in line with the party's directive. 

Before the March 19 area council poll in the Federal Capital Territory, candidates of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in AMAC, Gwagwalada, Kuje and Bwari, have removed the posters bearing the pictures of the president.
