Abuja (Sundiata Post) – There seems to be a mix-up in Professor Charles Odibo’s previous announcement as spokesman for the Labor Party Presidential Campaign Organization.
Party findings indicate that Prof Odibo was in fact hired to lead the communications team at the Great Tent, one of Peter Obi’s candidacy support groups solely for the development of the campaign’s publicity strategy President of the Labor Party.
Big Tent is just one of many support groups working in conjunction with the National Consultative Forum (NCF) to refresh the Obi/Datti presidency, the source noted.
Our source further revealed that the team consisting of an assemblage of seasoned media experts with a wide range of experiences will be limited only to researching and planning communication methodologies for the campaign.
The source who also said that the position of the campaign’s central spokesperson has been zoned to the north added that the communication structure has been designed in such a way that each state and Abuja will have a spokesperson and up to the governments local.
The idea was to ensure a seamless spread of effective communication across the various strata of the Nigerian population at the start of the campaign.
Media reports naming Prof. Odibo as spokesperson for the presidential campaign according to our source were a misrepresentation of the announcement made by Prof. Pat Utomi, the head of the National Consultative Forum (NCF).
He assured that the appointment of the spokesperson for the presidential campaign would be made with the media officials of the various states and local governments by the campaign organization before the end of the week.
The source declined to be coached to mention a name, but was optimistic media and publicity campaign manager for the presidential campaign organization Peter Obi would be a northerner.
