We will gladly welcome G5 governors - APC

The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has said that the ruling party is willing to receive the former Rivers state Governor Nyesom Wike-led G5 governors into its fold.

According to Adamu who made this known this while speaking in an interview with Arise Television on Tuesday, the G5 governors will be most welcome whenever they decide to opt for the ruling party.

He also debunked rumours that he has differences with the President Bola Tinubu, while stressing that it was proper to accord him commendation for leading the party towards a successful presidential primaries and the eventuual victory of Tinubu.

Adamu said he would be willing to disagree with the president on any matter because there’s freedom of speech in the country, explaining that the so-called altercation with the president remains media creation.

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.

He stated that it wasn’t the time for vilification, expressing the view that since he led the party to success, he should be commended.

Adamu said he had a right to hold an opinion like he did on Lawan before the primaries, but noted that once it was clear that Tinubu emerged, every member had to rally around him.

He said he currently has a good working relationship with Tinubu since his election, noting that the president has always given him his full attention each time they met.
