…Blame Tinubu If Amaechi Rejoin PDP, Says Eze
The Abdullahi Adamu-led APC has refused to obey President Muhammadu Buhari’s order to refund those candidates who stepped down at the March 26 Convention.
Despite making over N3bn during the convention, the party has also been paying its staff salaries late in the last two months.
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, had continued to defy the directive of President Muhammadu Buhari to refund nomination fees to aspirants who stepped down at the party’s March 26 Convention.
The convention later produced Adamu as the consensus candidate for the party’s chairmanship seat, The Nation Reported.
The party is still owing some members who were engaged in conducting the congresses from ward to the national convention in preparation for the 2023 elections.
The ruling party has also failed to pay staff salaries on time. June salary was paid in mid-July, while July salary was paid on Friday, August 12.
The late payment of salaries was against the stipulated 25th of every month.
Other aggrieved members are those engaged in the conduct of the party’s primaries that produced the APC’s candidates for the 2023 elections.
Meanwhile, a close ally of Rotimi Amaechi, former minister of transportation, Chukwuemeka Eze has hinted that the former governor of Rivers state might rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Eze then claimed that the presidential candidate of the APC, Bola Tinubu, his campaign team and the ruling party’s leadership should all be blamed if Amaechi leaves the party.
Amaechi’s ally was speaking in the background of the rumour that the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, could be wooing the former minister.
