The All Progressive Congress, APC, Presidential Campaign Council, PCC has denied a letter purportedly written by its National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu to Bola Tinubu, the party’s presidential flag bearer.
A strong worded statement issued to journalists in Abuja on Thursday by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Barr Felix Morka said in parts:
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” he said.
According to Barr Morkar: “Our attention has been drawn to a “draft” letter in circulation purportedly written by, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of our great Party, addressed to 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.
The National Publicity Secretary further maintained that they 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.
The statement concluded by claiming that” 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’.
