The All Progressives Congress, APC, said its chairman Abdullahi Adamu never wrote a letter of complaint to the presidential candidate of the party, Bola Tinubu.
APC issued the rebuttal after a letter in circulation showed that Adamu complained to Tinubu over the recently released list of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).
According to the letter, Adamu noted that the PCC list was not approved by the National Working Committee of APC and urged Tinubu not to run a one-man show.
However, Felix Morka, the National Publicity Secretary of APC, said the letter never emanated from the party.
Felix said: “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.
“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.”
