The Presidency has issued a clarification on the status of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, who was named under the sub-head of Advisory Members in the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council announced on Friday, December 28, 2018.

The clarification said that Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, being a non-card-carrying member of the APC, “cannot, and is not member of the PCC.”

According to a statement signed by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity
Femi Adesina, Dangote is also a member of the Peace Committee, and thus cannot be in a partisan campaign council.

Adesina made the clarification in a statement on Friday in Abuja.
The statement read: “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.
“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.’’
A statement earlier issued by the presidential aide had named Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Adams Ohiohmole, Bola Tinubu, Sen. Ahmed Lawan, Femi Gbajabiamila, Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola as members of the Special Advisory Committee to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Other members of the Council, according to the statement, are Chief Bisi Akande, Chief John Oyegun, Sen. Ita Enang, all APC serving Senators and all APC serving and former Governors.
All APC Members of the House of Representatives, all members of the National Working Committee of the APC and all Zonal Women Leaders are also members of the council.
