APC denies Adamu’s leaked letter to Tinubu
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied a leaked letter signed by Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of APC to Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate.
Chronicle NG reports that in the leaked draft, Adamu complained that the National Working Committee of the party was sidelined in the selection of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
Adamu noted that they were sidelined by Tinubu despite an earlier agreement with him as regards appointment into the PCC.
Reacting to the leaked letter, Felix Morka, APC publicity secretary claimed that Adamu did not author the leaked letter.
“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.
Morka claimed that, “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.”
