The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu on Wednesday said he is confident that the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, will deploy all that is necessary to ensure his (Tinubu’s) victory in the forthcoming election.
Against speculations that there is a rift between him and Adamu, Tinubu said rumour-mongers were in play, declaring that the APC camp is united and peaceful.
Naija News reports that the presidential hopeful said just like many people, he learnt about the alleged rift in the newspaper.
Tinubu stressed that he and Adamu have come a long way, hence rumour mongers can continue to throw their jabs while the party progresses ahead of the 2023 polls.
The former Governor of Lagos State made the clarification on Wednesday before his scheduled meeting with the National Working Committee of the APC at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, Naija News understands.
Addressing newsmen at the secretariat, Tinubu said: “To the rumour manufacturers, I read in some papers about a disagreement between myself and the chairman and that was a very big lie. They didn’t know that we have come a long way. The big masquerade dance not in the cage but in the market square.
“And that is what Adamu use to be, full of wisdom, we were governors together before God put us together on this project again. He is going to deliver as the Chairman of the party for me to become the president of Nigeria. And I am very confident of that.”
He said people can say whatever they want to say but the party remains firm and determined to fulfil its dreams of turning Nigeria into a very progressive, highly developed, prosperous country.
My Thanks To The APC NWC
Tinubu applauded the NWC members, adding that he visited them to discuss the modalities of the political campaign, which is just few days away.
He said: “What we came here today to do is to discuss the campaign which is few days away. When INEC will lift the ban, how do we work out the details, work together, implement all we have been saying, who are the members of the campaign council, who will not be members, and I beg you not to be angry if you are left out because we are going to give you another responsibility? Not every member here can be a member of the presidential campaign council.
“I have not been able to say sincerely thank you since that primary and we have hit ground running, especially as the unveiling of our running mate was held outside this headquarters.
“To all the members in attendance that day, we want to say thank you. We have come together as a political party and we have taken progressivism as our doctrine. We have to be progressive in our thinking, our did and our objective to serve the country.
“It is a great matter of joy and honour for us to be here, especially me in particular, to interact with the team that authorised my becoming the candidate of our party. I have not been able to say sincerely thank you since that primary and we have hit ground running, especially as the unveiling of our running mate was held outside this headquarters,” Tinubu stated.
