2023: APC Dispels Rumor Of Cold War Between Tinubu, Adamu Over Campaigns
The All Progressives Congress has dispelled rumors of a cold war between the national chairman of the party Abdullahi Adamu and its presidential candidate Bola Tinubu.
Nze Chidi Duru, the party’s deputy national organizing secretary, in a chat with reporters in Abuja, remarked that there is no iota of truth in the stories making the rounds that Tinubu and Adamu are at loggerheads over the means to achieve the victory of the party in the 2023 poll.
Duru maintained that both the Tinubu team and the party’s national secretariat have fine-tuned the full list of members of the APC campaign council ahead of the flag-off of campaigns on the 28th of September.
He said: “There is no power tussle over positions. None of such has happened and the party and the candidate are working together. But it is important to say that we agreed on DG and spokesman.
“The governors will control the structures at the zones. The party can’t be excluded and it won’t even exclude anybody. We will have an embracing and all-inclusive campaign council. There is no discord anywhere. More importantly, the party chairman agreed on the issue of DG and the spokesman.
“Before the INEC flag-off on September 28, all other positions will be unveiled. The chairman is leading the conversation. ”
The party’s position came against the backdrop of media reports that the APC is yet to unveil the full list of members of the Presidential Campaign Council as a result of a power tussle between the duo.
Recall that Plateau Governor Simon Lalong and Minister of State Labour and Employment Festus Keyamo were appointed as Director-General and Spokesman of the Presidential Campaign Council.
