“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.
