APC presidential ticket: Adamu congratulates Tinubu

The national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has congratulated Bola Ahmed Tinubu for emerging as the winner of the just concluded APC presidential primary, which has consequently made him the presidential flagbearer of the party for the 2023 general elections.

In a letter dated Wednesday, June 8, the former Nasarawa State governor expressed warm compliments to the ex-Lagos State governor, over his overwhelming victory at the party’s primary poll, stating that he hopes the victorious collaborative efforts between the party and Tinubu’s campaign team will extend further to the general elections.

The letter read, “I present to Your Excellency, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, my compliments and those of the members of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress, in the best of traditions.

“I write on behalf of the entire membership of the All Progressives Congress to congratulate Your Excellency on the sterling victory that you recorded at the just concluded Special National Convention to emerge as the Presidential Candidate of our great Party.

Adamu continued, “Your victory has vindicated our party’s nationalistic outlook and patriotic posture as the party of choice for every Nigerian. I am pleased that the party spoke with one voice when the delegates voted overwhelmingly to nominate you as our presidential candidate.

“It is my sincere hope and prayer that our collaborative efforts between the party’s National Secretariat and your Presidential campaign team will proceed with the shared expectations of victory at the 2023 general elections, by the grace of God.

Please accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest regards.”

Over 2,000 delegates had voted at the APC special convention, held on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Eagle Square, Abuja, where Tinubu polled 1,271 votes to defeat 13 other aspirants, including a former Transport Minister, Rotimi Ameachi and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, who scored 316 and 235 votes respectively.
