Top members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) converged on Ibadan, Oyo state capital, on Saturday, for the launch of the zonal office of Buhari/Osinbajo support group.
Among those in attendance were Isaac Adewole, minister of health; Adebayo Shittu, minister of communication; Ken Nnamani, former senate president; and Orji Uzor Kalu, former governor of Abia state.
However, Abiola Ajimobi, governor of the state, stayed away from the programme.
The inauguration took place one day after Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, said all APC govs have endorsed Buhari’s reelection.
Okorocha also said Rotimi Amaechi, minister of transportation, had been appointed as the director-general of the president’s campaign team.
Buhari is yet to make public his intention for 2019 even though he has been holding meetings with leaders of his party and many of his supporters.
