2023: “Without State governors, APC will lose in 2023” – APC Chairman, Adamu

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has said the ruling party would lose the 2023 presidential elections without the support of governors who are members of the party.

Adamu stated this at the opening session of a meeting of State governors, the National Working Committee (NWC), and other stakeholders at the party’s national secretariat yesterday, in Abuja.

Recall that APC governors were reportedly aggrieved over the composition of the party’s presidential campaign council, released recently by the Secretary of the Council, James Faleke. Following their grievances, the Director-General of the Campaign Council and Plateau State governor, Simon Lalong, postponed the kick-off of the party’s presidential campaign, saying the move was to allow room for the inclusion of more party chieftains in the Council.

At yesterday’s meeting, Adamu said, “Being the Chief Executive Officers of their various States, the onus of our great party lies in the hands of God and in their hands; because they are the commanders of the party fortunes in their various States”.

“We cannot make meaningful progress in the affairs of these States, particularly in an election year that is approaching. We cannot plan without the buy-in of our governors, so that we can stand together, believing that we share the same aspirations”, he stated.

Speaking during the event, Simon Lalong said Adamu called for the meeting to discuss issues related to the progress of the party.
