The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina has come to clarify the role of Multi-Billionaire businessman, Aliko Dangote on the APC’s Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, saying that he is not a card-carrying member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), therefore cannot, and is not a member of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) as erroneously announced on Friday.


The statement read: “It has become imperative to further clarify the status of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, named under the sub-head ADVISORY MEMBERS in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council announced on Friday, but not being a card-carrying member of APC, cannot, and is not member of the PCC.

“He is also a member of the Peace Committee, and thus cannot be in a partisan campaign council.’’

A statement earlier issued by the presidential aide on Friday had named Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Adams Oshiomhole, Bola Tinubu, Sen. Ahmed Lawan, Femi Gbajabiamila, Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola as members of the Special Advisory Committee to President Muhammadu Buhari.
