The governor of Kaduna State Nasir El-Rufai has disclosed that efforts are on to appoint the director-general as well as the chairman for the presidential campaign council of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

Recall that some sections of the media had hinted that Mr El-Rufai and a former national chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomole, were appointed as the chairman and director-general of the campaign council respectively.

Speaking to journalists after a meeting between the APC, its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and members of the Progressive Governors Forum in Abuja on Monday, Mr El-Rufai disclosed that consultations were still on, adding that a formal announcement would soon be made.
