Former Head of State Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) has postponed the official launch of his presidential campaign, reports Vanguard.
The presidential aspirant under the umbrella of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had earlier slated the launch for October 8, but has held it off for now, due to the absence of some close associates who are away on Islamic pilgrimage to the Saudi Arabia.
“Yes it is true but we have not yet confirmed the new date but it will be after the Adamawa election,” said Alhaji Umaru Dhembo, a campaign official, who confirmed the development.
Another reason for the deferment, according to Vanguard sources, is the closeness of the launch to the governorship bye election in Adamawa State on October 11.
“With Adamawa election with our experience with Ekiti, we do not want our people to be blocked as they did in Ekiti,” Dhembo added.
