PCC: Adamu Writes Tinubu As Crisis Festers In APC

Published

on

The last may not have been heard about the crisis rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), after the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, wrote the presidential candidate of the party, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, demanding immediate withdrawal of the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) list.

The decision was taken after a-five hour meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) on Wednesday in Abuja.

A draft of the letter titled, “Release of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council List,” regretted that the list was released without recourse to the party’s national leadership.

The NWC warned Tinubu to restrain the PCC from undertaking solo projects of this nature and agreed to work with all stakeholders towards taking the party to victory.

It warned that any sign of disarray in the party’s ranks would undermine the spirit and ethos of the campaign and give an undue alarm to faithful members and followers of the party across the country.

The NWC was of the opinion that the withdrawal of the list would assure the leadership of the respect and disposition towards the party, as well as the magnanimous spirit of cooperation towards achieving victory together with the NWC.

The party leadership expressed regret that the council Tinubu breached the agreement with the party leadership by releasing the campaign list without consulting the party.

Adamu noted that they owe it a duty as leaders to provide guidance by example to the rest of the party including the PCC, to abide by agreements and adhere strictly to the work ethos that has been adopted by all of us.

The letter reads in part: “On behalf of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), I present my compliments to Your Excellency and have the honour to convey to you, in truth and respect, the Committee’s opinion and position, regarding the above-mentioned subject matter, with a view to having a clear understanding about the respective roles and responsibilities of the principal organs of the Party charged with the duties of conducting the campaigns in the forth-coming general elections.

“This correspondence has become necessary in view of developments that took place over the last few days around the purported appointments into the Presidential Campaign Council (PCC) that was announced precipitately by officials of the Council, without making recourse to the NWC for approval.

“All along, the NWC had been disposed towards the campaign in a cooperative spirit that is driven by the overall interest of the party and the singular desire of victory for our candidates, in the persons of your esteemed self and your running mate.

“At the same, such a development would undoubtedly come as “Manna from Heaven” for the opposition parties, whose only desire, when all else fails, is to see the introduction of rancour, division, and disinclination in the leadership of our great party.

“I am sure Your Excellency will agree with me that this is an eventuality that we must do all in our power to prevent from happening. You will also agree that we owe it a duty as leaders to provide guidance by example to the rest of the Party including the PCC, to abide by agreements and adhere strictly to the work ethos that has been adopted by all of us.

“It is only by doing so that we will establish the premise for victory and gain the trust and confidence of our dear countrymen and women.

“Without further admonishment or complaints, I wish hereby to call upon Your Excellency to restrain the PCC from undertaking solo projects of this nature, and agree to work with all stakeholders towards taking our party to victory.

“It suffices for me to convey the general and overwhelming sentiment of the NWC with regards to the ill-timed and unfortunate release of the PCC list, which confounded rather than pleased the members and whose withdrawal will assure the NWC of Your Excellency’s respect and disposition towards the Party, as well as the magnanimous spirit of cooperation towards achieving victory together with the NWC.”
