APC in a U-turn, distances self from attack by Abdullahi Adamu against Tinubu over PCC membership
The crisis rocking the ruling All progressive congress (APC) continued to fester as the party disowned a letter purportedly emanating from the national chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu which kicked against the composition of the presidential campaign council (PCC).
In an apparent face-saving measure, APC’s National Publicity Secretary, Mr Felix Morka outrightly claimed that the letter did not emanate from the party.
The party maintained that the party stand united, in its resolve and commitment to execute a focused and issue-driven campaign to persuade Nigerians to renew its mandate in the 2023 poll.
it noted: “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.”
