APC National Chairman, Adamu Denies Accusing Tinubu Of Betrayal Over Composition Of Campaign Council

APC spokesperson, Felix Morka, said Adamu did not author the letter in circulation.

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress Abdullahi Adamu has denied accusing the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu of appointing members of the Presidential Campaign Council without the approval of the APC National Working Committee.

Tinubu last Friday unveiled a 422-man committee to pilot the various sub-committees of the campaign council.

A letter allegedly written by Mr Adamu surfaced on Wednesday in which he accused the former Lagos state governor of betraying the shared agreement on the appointment of members of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

Reacting in a statement, APC spokesperson, Felix Morka, said Adamu did not author the letter in circulation.

The statement read, “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.”
