Tinubu’s meeting behind closed doors with former President Goodluck Jonathan followed closely his earlier visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta, which is located in the state of Ogun.
Meanwhile, the National Working Committee of the APC issued a statement on Tuesday dismissing rumours that Tinubu and Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the party, are at odds over Adamu’s choice of Festus Keyamo and Oby Lalong to serve as the Director-General and Spokesperson for the APC Presidential Campaign, respectively.
Nze Duru, the Deputy National Organizing Secretary of the party, addressed the media on Tuesday at the party’s secretariat.
In his remarks, he refuted the rumour that Adamu and the presidential candidate were at odds with one another.
He stated that there was no power struggle over the reports making rounds. Nothing even even similar has taken place.
The candidate and the party are cooperating to achieve their goals.
However, it is essential to point out that we came to a consensus regarding the DG and the spokesman.
“The structures within the zones will be under the governors’ direct oversight. Nobody will be excluded from the party, and no one else can be excluded either. Our campaign council will be welcoming and open to participation from anybody and everyone. There is harmony in every possible location.
Most significantly, the party chairman reached a consensus on the question of who would serve as DG and spokesman.
