I did not regret campaigning for Buhari’s re-election – Shittu

Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu

The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said he has no regrets standing with the president in 2015 and is willing to do so again ahead of the 2019 polls
“It is true that the constitution and the electoral law talk of campaigns starting 90 days before elections, but there is no law stopping announcing intentions. There is a difference between campaigns and intentions.”
The Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, yesterday said this while speaking with State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja,
He said despite the criticisms that trailed his distribution of President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election campaign caps at the last meeting of the Federal Executive Council, he has no regrets for his action.
He said all he did was a pronouncement of an intention.
Shittu said the event he organised in Ibadan, Oyo State, was not a campaign but the opening of the South West Zonal Office of the Muhammadu Buhari/Osinbajo Dynamic Support Group.
The minister explained saying, “This organisation has been in existence for more than six years.
So if it did not have a presence in the South West, and now because they appointed me as chairman of the Board of Trustees and I feel that as a serious-minded person we need to have a presence in the South West in preparation for the campaigns, I don’t see what is wrong with that”, he said.
