2023: Tinubu to make more concessions to Adamu’s NWC


Indications emerged on Thursday night that Bola Tinubu, the presidential flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 election, will grant more concessions to the Senator Abdullahi Adamu-led National Working Committee (NWC).

POLITICS NIGERIA learned that the council would be expanded by creating more directorates but that the campaigns would still be run by the former Lagos State governor’s team.

“Tinubu is the candidate. It is his election. He must be allowed to run his campaign,” said one of Tinubu’s close associates.

“If we did not have a sitting president, Tinubu would have been the chairman of the campaign council.

“Whenever you have a campaign council, what is the job of the NWC? The NWC takes the back seat. That is tradition. That is the way it has always been.

“However, our presidential candidate is always ready to accommodate all interests.

“Do not be surprised if members of the council rises to between 1,800 and 2,000.”

Recall that Adamu had fumed and accused Tinubu of breaching agreements on the Campaign Council.

In the letter Adamu wrote to Tinubu in London, the party said the presidential candidate is operating solo whereas winning elections is supposed to be a collaborative effort.
