In a statement made a few hours ago by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiya on his social media handle, listed the name of the Nigerian Senate President and former Presidential aspirant under the PDP , Senator Bukola Saraki as the DG of the Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Campaign Council.
While making this announcement, he also named some PDP Governors and former PDP Presidential aspirants who lost to Atiku at the Port Harcourt Convention as members and coordinators in their various regions as Campaign zonal chairmen, and fund raisers.
