The All Progressives Congress has disclaimed a letter purportedly written by the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, to its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
According to reports in some media outfits, a letter allegedly written by Mr Adamu surfaced on Wednesday in which he expressed dissatisfaction with composition of the party’s Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
The list of the 422-member member Council was released late Monday.
In a statement by the APC spokesperson, Felix Morka, on Thursday, the party said Mr Adamu did not author the letter in circulation.
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.
Read the full statement below:
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).
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.
Barr. Felix Morka
