They have a duty to eradicate the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the South West.

The campaign council was inaugurated by APC Deputy National Chairman (North), Sen. Lawali Shuaibu, on behalf of the National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun. The team also includes 14 serving governors, ministers, some members of the Party’s National Working Committee, National Assembly members and senior Party leaders.

Sen. Lawali Shuaibu, at the inauguration, recognized the importance of the Ekiti governorship election to APC; he, however, admonished the campaign council to shun hate speech in its campaign message to the people of Ekiti.
