The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ondo State has postponed the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari to the state to November 10.
The party had earlier announced that President Buhari would visit the state on Thursday, November 3, to formally flag off the campaign of the APC governorship candidate, Rotimi Akeredolu (SAN).
Ondo State would hold its governorship election on November 26.
The APC Publicity Secretary, Abayomi Adesanya, said this at a press conference in Akure on Tuesday.
Mr. Adesanya said the postponement was due to the “tight schedule of Mr President”.
“The president wants to be present at the campaign rally in person.
“This is due to the economic importance of Ondo State in the development of Nigeria”, he said.
The Ondo APC spokesman, therefore, urged party faithful and the people of the state to ensure that the president receives a rousing welcome during the visit.
A 30-man local organising committee for the campaign chaired by Agboola Ajayi, the Deputy Governorship candidate, was inaugurated on October 28.
