“Nominated members are expected to participate in the special prayer sessions marking the commencement of the 2023 presidential election campaigns,” Onanuga said.
After the prayers, he announced that there would be a peace walk, and that all nominees would receive their letters of appointment on the same day.
He praised the campaign council members and urged them to serve the party with sacrifice and entire dedication.
“We know this is a call to serve the great party that will demand total commitment and sacrifice from all of us.
“It is the council’s strong belief that all members will work hard to deliver a resounding victory for our great party in the 2023 presidential election.
