Osun guber: Finally, APC’s national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, admits party’s defeat

APC National Chairman, Senator Adamu Abdullahi

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has finally admitted the loss of his party in the July 16 Osun State governorship poll to the Peoples Democratic Party PDP.

This came about 24 hours after he claimed ignorance of his party’s loss during a Television interview.

But speaking on in another interview on the BBC Hausa Service, Adamu blamed the outcome of the Osun election on internal wrangling within the state chapter of the party.

Abdullahi said that the election result did not mean that the party would lose the General Election in 2023.

According to the National Chairman of the APC, it was internal wrangling between staunch APC members in Osun that led to the party’s failure.

“We were defeated not because we were not good in politics. It was because of what happened between some party members close to the election,” Senator Adamu said.

He had drawn national attention in a previous interview with Arise TV where he said that he had not been informed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC that the party lost the election.

Explaining why the party was defeated in the Osun election, Adamu said: “There’s was misunderstanding between party members; the APC juggernauts in Osun state. These juggernauts have been quarrelling; accusing each other.”

He explained that these aggrieved party stalwarts said they would not vote if what they wanted was not done, insisting that there was no understanding among them in spite of the fact that they were in the same party.

Observing that the party would accept the results in good faith, Senator Adamu said ”in politics like in other worldly affairs, one could win or lose. There’s nothing we can do.”

He  said it had now become imperative to all party members to rectify all that they were doing which were not in line with the  mission  of the APC, as they approached the Presidential election in 2023.

”This has shown that we have a big task ahead. We must see what we can do , and change our tactics,” he said.

”We must look at ourselves, see if what we are doing in this political journey, is it right? What are those things that are not right? What needs to be corrected? So that we get what will lead to success in our journey,” he said.

Senator Adamu, however, said that the defeat in Osun dir not, in any way, mean that the ruling party would not win in the 2023 general election. (GWG excepting headline and little text edits)
