National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has spoken on the silence of some presidential aspirants who lost out in the June 8 Special Presidential Convention of the party, saying while they remain members of the party, he could not assess the level of their commitment to the Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu presidential project.
Although Tinubu had won the ticket of the party during the convention, however, some of his rivals like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan and former Transportation Minister, Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi have not shown public commitment to the party’s bid to retain power at the centre.
While Osinbajo was excluded from the APC Presidential Campaign Council PCC, both Lawan and Amaechi were named as advisers.
The development came as Adamu recalled with displeasure, the state of affairs of the party when he assumed the reins in March this year.
Adamu said he inherited billions of Naira in debts from his predecessor.
Asked about Osinbajo, Lawan and Amaechi, the APC national chairman said; “To the best of our knowledge, they are keying into this project.
However, each of the aspirants at the convention is still alive and as journalists, you owe it a duty -having observed or having the state of mind that requires knowing where they stand today. It will be a bit absurd for me to start talking to them about things I feel you have not seen or heard from them. As for reconciliation, it is still a work in progress and we have been doing it.
We have been talking to them and these guys are still very much around the political space. You can ask them whatever your observations are”.
