Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), stated that the party is open to accepting the G-5, led by former Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike, into its fold.
Adamu disclosed this while speaking in an interview with Arise Television on Tuesday.
The G-5 will always be welcomed whenever they want to support the ruling party, according to the APC chairman.
Meanwhile, Adamu denied any problems between himself and President Bola Tinubu.
Adamu asserted that he deserved praise for guiding the party to productive presidential primaries and Tinubu’s eventual triumph.
He said that he had misrepresented his views on the recently elected principal officials of the national assembly, and he added that the APC had problems with the way the legislators handled communications.
Saliu Lukman, for example, who has consistently accused Adamu of being a one-man show, has always attended those meetings, according to Adamu, who claimed that people who have grievances against him have always had the chance to voice them there.
The APC chairman stated that the decision of Lukman to take the party to court was a grave offence even though he later signed a deal that his case had been withdrawn from the court and apologising for his misdemeanour.
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.
“That was before the convention. So many things took place between then and the actual date of the convention and you saw what culminated in the convention unanimously. I was there and I led the convention of the party.
“A day after the convention, I took the entire working committee to his (Tinubu’s) house in Asokoro and assured him of our support and said we will stand shoulder to shoulder with him and ensure that the mandate was sold properly to the people of Nigeria. We won the election. Instead of being praised, we are vilified,” he said.
