Confusion As Officials Insist Adamu’s Letter To Tinubu Is APC-NWC’s Position

An official of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has insisted that the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has written a letter to the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

According to the official of the ruling party, Adamu’s letter was the true position of the National Working Committee (NWC) despite their denial.

It will be recalled that a leaked letter which went viral had emerged online on Thursday suggesting all is not well within the ruling party.

In the leaked letter, the APC National Chairman accused Tinubu of breaching the agreement he had with the NWC with regard to the composition of the presidential campaign council.

Adamu said the presidential candidate is operating solo whereas winning elections is supposed to be a collaborative effort.

The NWC had made some recommendations to Bola Tinubu before the announcement of the Campaign Council, but the presidential candidate had refused to follow those recommendations according to the purported letter.

However, the APC, in a swift reaction, denied any letter originated from the chairman to the presidential candidate on such an issue.

The denial was contained in a statement on Thursday issued by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Barr. Felix Morka.

According to Morka, there is no disagreement between Adamu and Tinubu neither did the viral letter originate from the party chairman has been alleged.

He added that the party will not be distracted by any attempt from those who want to cause a crisis within the APC.

But speaking to Vanguard, party officials disclosed that the party’s current position is a mere recant.

The APC chieftians insisted that the letter carried the true position of the APC-NWC.

“That letter is the position of the NWC. Whatever is happening now is an attempt at a recant,” one of them, who does not want his name mentioned, said.

An aide of Bola Tinubu, who pleaded anonymity, had earlier told Vanguard that his principal would not react to the letter as published in the media.

“No letter was sent to Asiwaju. So, how do we react to a leaked letter that was never sent?” he had queried.
