President Muhammadu Buhari returns to the campaigns for All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate Kashim Shettima on Monday when he leads the campaign in Bauchi State.

According to the campaign schedule amended by Presidential Campaign Council Secretary James Faleke, Buhari will be at the rally scheduled from 8:30 to 11:30 am.

“The rally will take place earlier than other rallies as Buhari is also expected to be in Lagos on the same day to start a two-day visit. In Lagos, he will commission Lekki Deal Sea Port, a public-private partnership (PPP) company, involving the federal and Lagos state governments and a private company, Tolaram”, the statement signed by Bayo Onanuga,

Director, Media and Advertising, APC PCC read.

Buhari will also commission the 32-metric-tonne-per-hour Lagos rice mill, one of the largest in the world, and the 18.75-kilometre, six-lane Eleko junction with rigid pavement to the Epe highway.

It is expected to launch the first phase of the iconic Blue Line on Tuesday, as well as the John Randle Center for Yoruba Culture and History.

According to the statement; “APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu will take his campaign to Abia State on Tuesday and Ogun State on Wednesday.

“It will be a busy week of the election campaign as the candidate and his running mate Shettima will also seek votes in Benue and Taraba on Thursday.

“While the Benue rally is scheduled between 10:00 and 13:00, the Taraba rally will take place between 14:30 and 16:30. The campaign train returns to Abuja on Friday for vice-presidential candidate Shettima’s launch of the All Farmers Progressive Association and launch of tractors for members.

“On the same day, Shettima will hold a town hall meeting with the Livestock Development Group. The APC in its Action Plan pledges to consolidate President Buhari’s huge investments in agriculture by creating commodity exchanges and agricultural hubs in Nigeria’s six geopolitical zones.

“Zamfara state, where all the APC tendencies in the state have come together, will host the last rally of the week on Saturday in Gusau, the capital,” the PCC said in the statement.
