APC Convention: Adamu, Musa, Al-Makura, Mustapha, Akume, Others Turn In Forms
Contenders for the office of the All Progressives Congress (APC) national chairmanship position have turned in their expression of interest and nomination forms at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, ahead of Saturday’s national convention.
Our correspondent reports that there was a mad rush on Friday by aspirants to submit their forms for various National Working Committee (NWC) offices.
While some of the aspirants personally appeared for submission, others submitted their forms by proxy.
The Senator representing Niger East, Senator Sani Musa; a former governor of Nasarawa State, Tanko Al-Makura; a former governor of Benue State and current Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, Senator George Akume, all submitted their forms.
Others who turned in their forms after filling them were a former deputy national chairman of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), Saliu Mustapha; a former governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Adamu; former governor of Zamfara State, Abdulaziz Yari, and Mohammed Saidu Etsu.
We’re not informed of any consensus candidate – Sen Musa
In an interview with newsmen after submitting his forms, Senator Musa said the party did not inform the aspirants of any consensus candidate for the office of national chairman as being speculated.
There are reports that President Muhammadu Buhari had endorsed Senator Abdullahi Adamu as the next national chairman of the party.
But when asked, Senator Musa said, “Why did the party sell forms to us? As far as I’m concerned, there has never been anybody that officially contacted me or any other aspirants.
“Nobody! And the spokesperson to Mr President, Femi Adesina, has said there is no endorsement.”
