BREAKING: APC Reacts As Atiku Promises to Award Contracts To Political Allies If Elected

Festus Keyamo, the chief spokesperson of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council (PCC), has again kicked against Atiku Abubakar, the presidential flagbearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) over a promise to award contracts to political allies after poll.

Atiku at a town hall meeting in Abeokuta on Wednesday, January 18, promised that only PDP chieftains who win their polling units for the party will get appointments and contracts under his administration if elected in the forthcoming election.

 

The former vice president noted that joining his campaign train is not enough for him to award contracts and give appointments, but they must work for the party’s victory.

But Keyamo, who has recently been at loggerheads with Atiku took to his Twitter page on Thursday, January 19, to condemn the statement of the PDP presidential candidate, reminding him of the law that guides awarding of contracts. According to the APC chieftain, the major law that guides the awarding of the contract is the public procurement act.
