Against the backdrop of the internal wrangling rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, the chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu said he has no grudges against President Bola Tinubu.
Adamu stated this while speaking in an interview, monitored by our correspondent on Arise Television on Tuesday.
He said, “At least we led this party to success, we can’t wished that away. We as APC produced him (Tinubu) and I have had the privilege of leading that.
“For your information, I’ve enjoyed a good working relationship with President Ahmed Tinubu GCFR since he was inaugurated to date.
“In fact, since his election, there’s nothing I’ve gone to him to talk about that I didn’t get his attention or didn’t share my thoughts effectively with him.
“So, these are people, who are just trading gossips and trying to create bad blood between me and my president. He is more than that. He’s the president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I am privileged to be the Chairman of the ruling party today.
“And if I don’t accept for any reason, I will not hesitate to walk up to him and say “Mr Prsident sorry, this is my position on certain issues, if he disagrees with me and I disagree with him, we’ll find a way to resolve our differences.”
Recall that the APC chairman had earlier cautioned party chieftains against nursing high expectations of being appointed as ministers by Tinubu, saying everybody can’t be a cabinet member.
Adamu also justified the delay in the unveiling of the President’s ministers and heads of ministries, departments and agencies, saying Tinubu was carrying out an extensive consultation before making an official announcement.
The former Nasarawa State governor stated this at the meeting of the National Working Committee and APC state chairmen at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja on Monday.
Declare Obi winner of 2023 polls, as in Uzodinma’s case in 2020 — Ngogbehei begs Court
Mr. Marcel Ngogbehei, the Director-General of Good Governance Institute (GGI), and Leader of the Obidient Movement, has urged the courts to declare Peter Obi the winner of the 2023 Presidential Election.
He made the plea, echoing the decision rendered by the Supreme Court in the Imo Governorship election on January 14th, 2020.
Recall that the court recalculated the results after reviewing them and determining significant irregularities in the collation of votes.
Based on this review, the court declared Hope Uzodinma as the winner of the election, despite INEC initially placing him in third place.
According to Ngogbehei, applying the same approach in Obi’s case would prevent additional national expenditure and allete distress.
In a statement from London, on Tuesday, Ngogbehei, also a Sloan Fellow of Strategy and Leadership Management at the London Business School (LBS), based his request on an analysis of the tribunal proceedings, anticipating a judgement that would allow Nigeria to progress.

“It is my expectation that the courts will facilitate our nation’s forward movement by directing the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to revoke the certificate of return issued to Tinubu, the All Progressive Congress (APC) candidate, and reassign it to Peter Obi,” Ngogbehei declared.
Ngogbehei further stated that the courts possess the authority to recalculate the election results, similar to the action taken in Imo State, and declare the rightful winner.
He emphasized the importance of this decision, given the advancements in digital technology and the ability to store digital records for decades.
“The circumstances of February 25th, 2023, cannot be erased from our history. The world is closely following the court proceedings in Nigeria, compiling a wealth of digital evidence that will endure for decades. The courts must avoid placing themselves in an unfavorable historical position,” he warned.
