Senator Adamu, Bola Tinubu and other APC stakeholders

The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has denied a letter which was written by the national chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu to their presidential flagbearer, Bola Tinubu over the composition of the campaign council.

In the letter, Adamu had accused Bola Tinubu of overlooking their contribution in the composition of his presidential campaign council.

Recall that Tinubu had last week announced a 422-man committee comprising political bigwigs and other notable members to pilot the various sub-committees of the campaign council.

Meanwhile, the national publicity secretary of the party, Barrister Felix Morka in a statement, dismissed the draft letter, adding that, it did not emanate from the chairman of the party.

According to Morka, there exist a cordial and effective communication between Tinubu and senator Adamu and the duo enjoys full liberty of open and frank conversations on matters of interest to the party.

He however, attributed the draft letter to the actions of what he described as detractors whom he said are gleefully waiting for some kind of crisis to erupt in the party.

The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to a “DRAFT” letter in circulation purportedly written by His Excellency, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of our great Party, addressed to His Excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential Candidate of our great Party, expressing dissatisfaction over the recently released list of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

“To be clear, the “DRAFT” letter did not emanate from the Party. An UNSIGNED letter that marks itself as a ‘DRAFT’ cannot and should not be attributed to its purported author.

“The National Chairman of our Party and our Presidential Candidate maintain cordial and effective communication channels, and enjoy full liberty of open and frank conversations on matters of interest to the Party and our Presidential Campaign. As such, an unsigned “DRAFT” letter of the kind in circulation is patently unnecessary and of no qualitative value to engagement between the Party and the PCC.

“We will not be distracted by the wishes and actions of detractors that wait gleefully but in vain for some kind of crisis to erupt between the Party and the PCC.

“We stand united, as a Party, in our resolve and commitment to execute a focused and issue-driven campaign to persuade Nigerians to renew our mandate in next year’s general election.”
