Why I Worked Against Tinubu During APC Primaries – Adamu

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has explained why he worked against President Bola Tinubu during the primaries of the party.


Adamu who spoke on Arise Television News Night on Tuesday cleared the air on the rumoured differences between himself and the president, noting that before the emergence of Tinubu, he had the right to support whomever he wanted


Before the APC presidential primary, Adamu publicly announced his endorsement of former Senate President Ahmed Lawan. This move was widely interpreted as a direct challenge to Tinubu’s ambitions and sparked discontent among those dissatisfied with the party’s internal dynamics.


But speaking during an interview on his rift with the president, Adamu said, “I think that’s 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.
