APC WILLING TO RECEIVE WIKE-LED G-5 INTO ITS FOLD ABDULLAHI ADAMU
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said the party is willing to receive the former Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike-led G-5 into its fold
Adamu disclosed this while speaking in an interview with Arise Television on Tuesday.
The APC chairman noted that the G-5 will be most welcome whenever they decide to opt for the ruling party.
Meanwhile, Adamu has rubbished the rumoured differences between himself and President Bola Tinubu.
Adamu said he deserved some commendation for leading the party towards a successful presidential primaries and the eventuual victory of Tinubu.
He said he misrepresented about his position on the recently elected principal officers of the national assembly, adding that what the APC had issues with was the manner the communication was handled by the lawmakers.
Adamu said those who have issues against him have always had the opportunity to air their views at their national meetings, explaining that Saliu Lukman, for instance, who has always accused him of running a one-man show, has always attended those meetings.
The APC chairman stated that the decision of Lukman to take the party to court was a grave offence even though he later signed a deal that his case had been withdrawn from the court and apologising for his misdemeanour.
Adamu said, I think thats a soft selling point for you media people. It is true that at the time that I made a presentation to the National Working Committee (NWC), the name of Senator Ahmed Lawan was thrown up.
That was before the convention. So many things took place between then and the actual date of the convention and you saw what culminated in the convention unanimously. I was there and I led the convention of the party.
