The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress,APC, Felix Morka, on Thursday distanced its Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, from the open letter he purportedly penned to the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, accusing him (Tinubu) of running a one-man show in composing his campaign council.
He said the letter did not emanate from its chairman and that the letter in circulation was not signed by Adamu.
Per Second News reports that the APC chairman accused Tinubu over running a one-man show, Adamu said collaboration was key to winning elections and not alienation.
In the letter the chairman said “May I, therefore, point out to Your Excellency, that winning elections is a cooperative as well as a collaborative effort, that is done in a transparent and disinterested manner by all parties concerned, by respecting established boundaries and acknowledging the contributions of everyone. The NWC believes that any sign of disarray in the Party’s ranks will undermine the spirit and ethos of the campaign and give the undue alarm to faithful members and followers of the Party across the country.
Morka on Thursday, said the letter was unsigned and should not be attributed to the ruling party chairman.
“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).
“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.
