However, Dolapo, the wife of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, was not included in the campaign list released on Saturday by Rinsola Abiola, daughter of late Chief MKO Abiola, who is also named in the media and administrative committees of the campaign team.

Exclusion of Osinbajo from the 422-member list of the APC Presidential Campaign Council earlier released by the APC had generated furore.

The wife of Imo State Governor, Chioma Ikeaka-Uzodimma, was appointed to coordinate the South-East, while the wife of Cross River State Governor, Linda Ayade, will coordinate the women’s campaign in the South-South.

The statement added that wives of governors in APC-controlled states will serve as state coordinators , while prominent APC women will coordinate the women’s campaign in non-APC-controlled states.

Florence, widow of the former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, and the APC Deputy National Women Leader, Zainab Ibrahim, among others, were chosen to coordinate activities in states not controlled by the APC, while all ministers’ wives, all female senators, all female ministers and all APC deputy governors’ wives are members of the campaign team.
