The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has played down reports that he is at odds with the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu ahead of 2023 general elections.
Tinubu, who stated this when he visited the National Secretariat of the party for a meeting with the National Chairman and members of his National Working Committee, (NWC), stressed that they have come a long way and that he has no ill will toward Abdullahi. It was gathered that Tinubu held a closed-door session with the party national chairman before an enlarged meeting with other members of the APC NWC.
Speaking before the enlarged gathering of NWC and certain members of his entourage dissolved into a closed-door meeting, Senator Tinubu dismissed media reports of a cold war with the APC national chairman over the composition of the Presidential Campaign Council.
The APC presidential candidate, who said he was willing to surrender to input from Senator Adamu into his campaign team, restated that he was confident that the APC National Chairman would do nothing to undermine his victory in next February’s general elections. Abdullahi, according to Tinubu, would assist him in realising his presidential aspirations. He said the APC is determined to fulfill its dreams of developing Nigeria despite “jabs” from critics.
He assured that the chances of the APC in the 2023 poll are not in any way threatened by the people’s democratic party (PDP), the Labour Party, the new Nigeria peoples party (NNPP) and other opposition political parties in the country and further reassured party faithful of genuine commitment of stakeholders to his aspiration.
In his remarks, the APC National Chairman thanked the party presidential candidate for the visit.
