…say Buhari didn’t endorse anybody
…Adamu’s endorsement, mere speculation – Akume group
Omeiza Ajayi, Abuja
The Buhari House national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC was a beehive on Friday as several aspirants thronged the party headquarters to submit their nomination and expression of interest forms.
Among those who were at the secretariat were three national chairmanship aspirants who refuted claims that President Muhammadu Buhari may have endorsed a former Governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Abdullahi Adamu for the top party officials.
Some of the Chairmanship aspirants who submitted their forms were Senators Mohammed Sani Musa, Abdullahi Adamu, Tanko Almakura, George Akume, Mallam Saliu Mustapha, and Mallam Mohammed Etsu.
Addressing journalists, Senator Musa said if there was any endorsement, the ruling party would not have sold forms to any other contestant.
“Why did the party sell forms to us? You sold forms to us. And as far as I am concerned, there has never been anybody who officially contacted me or other aspirants. Nobody! And the spokesperson to Mr President, Femi Adesina has said that there is no endorsement.
“So, we want a vibrant leadership. We want leadership that will change the status quo. What are we talking about, the endorsement I want is your endorsement. I want the endorsement of 43 million APC members. That is what I need”.
