Although the aim of the meeting has not been made public, it might have something to do with getting ready for the 2023 presidential elections and most importantly the composition of the campaign council.

Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong, was being considered to replace governor El-Rufai as the campaign council DG.

It was learnt that Lalong’s name would be announced for the DG’s role at the end of the meeting because of his appeal to the Christian majority in the Middle Belt and aggrieved Christians in the North.

The Lagos meeting is expected to come up with the composition of the media and communications directorate of the campaign council which needs to step up their work as soon as possible ahead of the start of campaigns on September 28 as stipulated in the Independent National Electoral Commission’s guidelines.

Before now, the managing director of Independent Communications Network Limited, publishers of TheNEWS, PMNEWS and Tempo and former managing director of the News Agency of Nigeria, (NAN), Mr Bayo Onanuga, had been the director of media and communications of Tinubu Campaign Organisation. Onanuga and his team pivoted Tinubu’s campaign months leading to the APC presidential primary election and has been in charge since Tinubu emerged as the party’s flagbearer.
