APC Crisis: Adamu Worked Against Tinubu, Starved Others Funds – Vice Chairman

The leadership crisis brewing in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a new twist with the recent revelation by  the party’s national vice chairman (north-west), Salihu Mohammed Lukman.

Lukman alleged that the APC national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, willfully withdraw financial support to President Bola Tinubu and all candidates of the party in the build-up to the 2023 general election.

At a briefing in Abuja on Wednesday, July 13, Lukman, who has been consistently asking Adamu to render a financial account of the party, noted that the APC made over N30 billion from the sale of forms to candidates, yet it never supported any of its candidates.

Lukman was reacting to two separate television interviews granted by Adamu and the national secretary of the party, Senator Iyiola Omisore, in which the duo accused him of “being a nonentity and black sheep” within the party’s ranks.

“We are expected to present a proposed national budget to the National Executive Committee, NEC, for approval by the provisions of Article 13(3A)(14) of the APC constitution,” Lukman said.

‘’I felt embarrassed when I heard the National Secretary (Omisore) say the budget of the party has been sent to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

‘’INEC is not the approving authority of the budget of the APC. The approving authority is the NEC. Till today, we don’t have a national budget. Yet we made over N30 billion from sales of forms.

He, further, stated that under Adams Oshiomhole’s leadership in 2019, every candidate of the party received something from the national secretariat, stressing that no single candidate got a dime from the party in 2023.
