APC: No rift between Bola Tinubu, Abdullahi Adamu over campaign council
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) declared Tuesday that there is no disagreement between Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the party's presidential standard bearer, and Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the APC's national chairman.

The party was responding to an allegation that the entire list of council members was being withheld due to an alleged tense relationship between the two leaders regarding the campaign council.

The APC denied what it dubbed a "imaginary power struggle" in response to Nze Chidi Duru's statement, claiming that Tinubu and Adamu had been cooperating well on the campaign council's makeup.

Duru stated that the appointment of Governor Simon Lalong as the Director-General of the council and Festus Keyamo as the council’s spokesman enjoyed the buy-in of Tinubu and the party leadership.

The party official said: “Both the Tinubu team and the party national secretariat are working together and would unveil the full list of members of the campaign council before the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC) announced the flag-off for campaigns.

“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 spokesman.

“Before the INEC flag on September 28, all other positions will be unveiled. The chairman is leading the conversation.”
