The Nigeria President Muhammadu Buhari has taken an unusual step by naming the National Leader his party, Ahmed Bola Tinubu to lead his campaign trail.
Buhari handover party campaigns for the February general election to his party counterpart, sighting governance as a reason.
The President disclosed this on Monday while inaugurating the campaign council.
Buhari said he did not want governance to suffer, hence, the National Leader should resume campaign in his place.
Tinubu and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo are Co-Chairmen of the Council and by original plan, were to deputise the President, who ordinarily should lead the campaigns.
Buhari inaugurated the council at the International Conference Centre Abuja, an event that had the National Chairman of the party, Mr Adams Oshiomhole, ministers and governors in attendance.
