Adamu, APC govs meet to adjust Tinubu’s campaign list

Security was beefed up at the headquarters of All Progressives Congress on Wednesday when the Deputy Director of the APC Presidential Campaign Council and seven governors met with the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

There was a heavy presence of stern-looking policemen roving the area as the popular Blantyre Street was cordoned off as a security measure to control both human and vehicular traffic near the party secretariat.

There were also eight Progressive Governors Forum governors in attendance, namely Chairman of PGF and Governor of Kebbi State, Atiku Bagudu; Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu; his counterpart in Zamfara, Bello Matawalle; Jigawa State Governor, Abubakar Badaru; Sani Bello of Niger State; Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje; Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong and Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State

The marathon meeting, which started at noon, ended past 6 pm.

Although the agenda of the meeting was not disclosed, sources said it might not be unconnected with the contentious 422-man list of the presidential campaign council.

After the meeting, the PGF apologised for last week’s viral letter allegedly written by the National Chairman of the ruling APC, Senator Adamu to the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, who he accused of running a one-man show.

But rising from the meeting of the Progressive Governors Forum, Presidential Campaign Council and the Adamu-led National Working Committee, PGF Chairman, Atiku Bagudu publicly apologised for the leaked letter among others, which he said were ‘mistakes.’

Addressing journalists after the five-hour political roundtable, the Kebbi governor described the letter, which he said was not authorized, as ‘unfortunate.’

Adamu also addressed the media, saying the ruling party had established machinery to resolve conflictual issues to ensure “we are together on the same page with the Governors Forum, campaign council and the NWC.
