The Presidency has said that Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Africa’s richest man is not a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s Campaign Council.
Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), Femi Adesina, made the clarification in a statement on Friday.
“It has become imperative to further clarify the status of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, named under the sub-head Advisory Members in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council announced on Friday, December 28, 2018,” Adesina stated.
He added that “Africa’s richest man, not being a card-carrying member of APC, cannot, and is not member of the PCC. He is also a member of the Peace Committee, and thus cannot be in a partisan campaign council”.
