Aisha Buhari Gets New Appointment In Tinubu/Shettima Campaign Team



Aisha Buhari, the president’s wife, will lead the Tinubu/Shettima Women’s Presidential Campaign team for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

She will be in charge of the party’s about 1,200-member women’s campaign section for the elections in 2023.

The wives of the party’s nominee, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, and the vice presidential candidate of the APC, Hajiya Nana Shettima, will lead and co-chair the women’s campaign team, respectively.

These appointments were contained in a statement on Saturday in Abuja by Rinsola Abiola, daughter of late Chief MKO Abiola, who is also named in the media and administrative committees of the campaign team.
Hon. Asabe Vilita Bashir, a former member of the House of Representatives from Borno who serves as national coordinator will be assisted by Lauretta Onochie, a senior aide in the Presidency as deputy national coordinator.
The women’s campaign in the North-West Zone will be coordinated by Dr Zainab Baugudu, wife of the Kebbi Governor while a Falmata Zulum, the First Lady of Borno State, will be in charge of the Northeast.
Olufolake Abdulrazaq, wife of Kwara Governor will coordinate efforts in the North-Central and Mrs. Ibijoke Sanwo-olu, wife of the Lagos Governor, will superintend over the South-West.

Chioma Ikeaka-Uzodinma, the first lady of Imo, will also oversee the South-East, and Linda Ayade, the governor of Cross River, will lead the women’s campaign in the South-South.

The statement added that prominent APC women in non-APC-controlled States will assume leadership while the wives of governors in APC-controlled States would act as state coordinators in those states.

The widow of the former governor of Oyo State, Florence Ajimobi, and Zainab Ibrahim, the APC’s deputy national women’s leader, among others, were appointed to oversee APC-unfriendly states.
