Campaign: Adamu accuses Tinubu of running one-man show

Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the APC’s presidential candidate, has come under pressure from the party’s leadership and national working committee only one week after announcing his roster of campaign advisers.

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the APC, wrote and signed a stern letter to Tinubu, who is currently on holiday in London, accusing him of arrogantly rejecting their input into the making of his presidential campaign council.

A 422-man committee headed by political heavyweights and other important figures was introduced by Tinubu on Friday to oversee the campaign council’s numerous subcommittees.

James Faleke, the Secretary of the Presidential Campaign Council, revealed the list of members in Abuja after a series of delays and rumors about who would be tasked with directing the governing party’s effort to maintain power at the federal level.

Tinubu and APC National Chairman Abdullahi Adamu serve as co-deputy chairs of the campaign council, which is presided over by President Major General Muhammadu Buhari (ret.).

APC governors, ministers, MPs, ambassadors, as well as current and former public office holders, are also members of the PCC.

Directors, deputy directors, and secretaries of directorates were also chosen, along with zonal and state coordinators, advisors, and campaign supporters.

Media and publicity, support group coordination, national youth mobilization, parliamentarian, trade and economics, agriculturists/commodities, campaign planning, civil societies, the Diaspora directorate, election planning and monitoring, finance, fund raising, and humanitarian/social issues are among the subcommittees.

Others include information technology and data management, intelligence and security, labor, logistics and other support services, health care, policy research and strategy, protocol and events, and others.

But a resolute Adamu wrote that the three-man committee formed to harmonize it were not accurately represented on the council membership list.,
