The All Progressives Congress (APC) has distanced itself from a letter purportedly written to Bola Tinubu by Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the party.

 

The letter had called into question the alleged sidelining of the party’s leadership from the presidential campaign council.

 

Felix Morka, the national publicity secretary of the party, in a statement on Thursday, said the letter wasn’t written by the party chairman.

 

Morka said Adamu and Tinubu have a cordial relationship, adding that they enjoy open channel communication on issues relating to the party and the presidential campaign.

 

He said the purported letter is the handiwork of the opposition parties, who he claims are striving to cause a crisis in the party.

 

“Our attention has been drawn to a “DRAFT” letter in circulation purportedly written by his excellency, senator Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of our great party,  addressed to his excellency, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of our great party, expressing dissatisfaction over the recently released list of the presidential campaign council (PCC),” he said.

 

“To be clear, 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.

 

“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.

 

“We 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.

 

“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.”
