APC National Chairman Open to Welcoming G-5 Governors Led by Wike


Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), expressed his willingness to receive the G-5 governors led by Nyesom Wike into the party. Speaking on ARISE NEWS, Adamu defended his actions during the party’s presidential primaries, highlighting his role in President Bola Tinubu’s victory.

Addressing the alleged differences between himself and the president, Adamu dismissed them as unfounded rumors. He asserted his right to support any candidate before Tinubu emerged as the frontrunner. Adamu clarified that his position on the recently elected principal officers of the national assembly was misrepresented, and the party’s concern was with the handling of communication by the lawmakers.

Adamu emphasized that those with grievances against him have always had the opportunity to voice their views at national meetings, citing the presence of Saliu Lukman, who has accused him of running a one-man show. He expressed disappointment over Lukman’s decision to take the party to court, despite subsequently withdrawing the case and apologizing for his actions.

Regarding his support for Senator Ahmed Lawan before the primaries, Adamu stated that circumstances changed leading up to the convention, culminating in Tinubu’s unanimous nomination. He stressed that he personally led the party’s convention and afterward, met with Tinubu to pledge support and ensure the proper transmission of the mandate to the Nigerian people. Instead of being praised, Adamu lamented that he faced criticism.

Adamu defended his right to hold differing opinions and highlighted his good working relationship with Tinubu since his election. He asserted that reports of conflicts with the president were speculative and urged the media to be fair in their reporting.

Addressing the reported comments about Ondo Governor Rotimi Akeredolu’s alleged incapacitation, Adamu clarified that no such pronouncement was made during his meeting with state chairmen.

Looking to the future, Adamu expressed optimism about the APC’s prospects and expressed his hope that Tinubu would secure renewal for a second term in the coming four years. He emphasized that media reports of differences with the president did not concern him, as his primary focus is to maintain the party’s unity.

Adamu concluded by stating his readiness to accept the G-5 governors led by Nyesom Wike into the APC, noting that they would be warmly welcomed whenever they decide to join the party.
