APC refutes divisions at Nasarawa chapter

18 April 2016, 22:03

Abuja - The Nasarawa Chapter of the All Progressives Congress has denied a rift between Governor Umaru Tanko Al-Makura and former premier, Abdullahi Adamu.

There has been speculation the relationship between the two men had broken down with reports suggesting Al-Makura was sidelining the former governor o key issues.

State Secretary of the party, Alhaji Aliyu Bello, sdismissed the reports.

“As officials of APC at the state level, we are not aware of any problems between the Governor and his appointees and we at our own level we don't have any problem.”

He said there was “unity of purpose” in the party.

“APC has grown to an extent beyond what you think. This are issues that you only see on pages of newspapers and is the handiwork of some detractors within and outside the party who are not happy with the peaceful relationship of the governor and Adamu,” Bello said.

“There is unity between the Governor and the party leadership, the Governor is always in contact with Senator Adamu, and in fact he even informed him before embarking on his last trip. There is no division within the party and by God grace there shall never be any confusion.”

Details of the trip could not be ascertained.

Members of the party were also said to be divided between two groups of Adamu loyalists and Al-Makura camp.

Some members accuse Al-Makura of running the administration with an iron fist.
