Heavy security as Tinubu, Shettima storm APC secretariat
Security has been beefed at the national secretariat of the All Progressives Congress in preparation for the visit of the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.
Several patrol vans were packed by the entrance of the secretariat with stern-looking officers moving around the premises.
Tinubu and Shettima are expected to attend an ad hoc meeting of the APC National Working Committee at the secretariat on Wednesday at 10:00am.
The development is coming barely three months after the party national leader postponed his maiden visit to the secretariat following his victory at the APC Convention.
Although no official statement has been released by the leadership of the ruling APC, a source said the political roundtable provides an opportunity to discuss Tinubu’s campaign manifesto and restrategise ahead of the political campaign, which kicks off on September 28.
The source also warned that the number of visitors coming into the secretariat would be greatly restricted as a means of crowd control measure and for security purposes.
The presidential flag bearer and his vice presidential candidate are expected to address the APC press corps at the Media immediately after the meeting.
