Amid IPOB Sit-At-Home, Tinubu, APC To Campaign In South East On Monday



The All Progressives Congress and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu will hold its campaign rally in Imo State on Monday, November 21, 2022..

The party also revealed that its campaign rally in Anambra will hold on Monday, January 30.

This is according to the presidential campaign timetable released by the APC Presidential Campaign Council.

The scheduled rallies will hold amid the Indigenous People of Biafra’s sit-at-home order in the region which also take place on Mondays.

IPOB had declared the sit-at-home order in August 2021 to protest and demand the release of its embattled leader, Nnamdi Kanu, who is standing trial on treason and terrorism charges by the Nigerian government.

The PUNCH reports that oftentimes, Mondays are usually a day of paralysed activities in the South-East regions, with many staying at home or using the day to observe certain meetings.

According to the revised timetable for Tinubu campaign, there will be series of rallies in Delta (19), Imo (21), Adamawa (24), Ogun (26), Enugu (29) and Sokoto (30) respectively.

Between December 4 and 10, the campaign team will embark on international engagement with stakeholders in Diaspora.

However, when quizzed on why the timetable was amended again, the Campaign spokesperson for Tinubu, Festus Keyamo, told our correspondent that the schedule of events and dates was a working draft, which is still subject to further adjustment.

He said, “They are all subject to change or amendments as we progress due to human nature. Nobody expected the flood, for example. But it came, and all of a sudden, it slows down activities and all that.

“So this is a working draft. At least, we have a draft to work with. My final comment on this is that it is Ceteris Paribus. That is, all things being equal.”
