…We’ll build dams, desilt major rivers to check flood – PDP’s VP candidate, Okowa
..Arewa tracking candidates’ promises

ALL Progressives Congress (APC)’s presidential candidate, Senator Bola Tinubu, will flag off his campaign, tomorrow.

  A source in Aso Rock said President Muhammadu Buhari will unveil the party’s manifesto and inaugurate its Presidential Campaign Council after a short address in Presidential Villa, Abuja.

  “Buhari, in his capacity as chairman, will inaugurate the party’s PCC and unveil the policy document of Tinubu. There are also strong indications that the choice of Ilorin, Kwara State, which was earlier chosen as the official venue for the campaign kick-off, will give way to a new one. For now, I can say all the grey areas causing disaffection among the APC National Working Committee and the governors have been taken care of in the newly harmonised campaign council list,” he said.

  A source in Directorate of Media and Publicity for Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council confirmed the report.

  Similarly, worried by devastations caused by floods in many parts of the country, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate’s running mate, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa said, if elected, their administration will build new dams and desilt major rivers to check flooding, especially when neighbouring countries opened their dams.

  Okowa made the promise, yesterday, in response to ongoing widespread flood disaster in communities along River Niger and River Benue basins.

  Meanwhile, a joint committee of Arewa Consultative Forum that interacted with some presidential candidates ahead of 2023 presidential election said they are keeping close tabs on what each presidential candidate, particularly the frontrunners, have promised to do for Nigerians if elected.
