 He said “campaigns are not starting tomorrow (Sunday). What has happened is that the ban on Campaign is officially lifted and parties are now free to begin their campaigns. You know, INEC can tell you when not to Campaign, but they can not determine for you when to start. 

“They have lifted the ban and parties are now free to go out there and openly campaign for the elections. Within the next one week, we will roll out our campaign plans”. 

Director of Strategic Communication of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Barrister Festus Keyamo (SAN) could not be reached for his comment on plans for the President’s Campaign as calls to his phone and SMS sent to him were not answered as at the time of this report.
