The APC national chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has commented on the importance of the party’s state governors. Adamu said the ruling party will lose the 2023 presidential election if the governors withdraw their support.
The national chairman of the APC made the statement at a meeting held at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, October 5. Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), says the ruling party will lose the 2023 presidential poll without the support of its state governors.
Adamu said this at the opening session of a meeting of governors, National Working Committee (NWC) and other APC stakeholders at the party’s national secretariat on Wednesday, October 5, in Abuja, Daily Trust reported.
Edujandon.com gathers that APC governors were aggrieved over the composition of the party’s presidential campaign council.
The development made the director general of the campaign council and Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong, postpone the party’s presidential campaign kick-off.
The governor explained that the move was to allow room for the inclusion of more party chieftains in the Council.
Governors are commanders of APC’s fortunes
Speaking on Wednesday, Adamu said governors elected on the APC platform are the commanders of the party’s fortunes in their various states.
“We cannot make meaningful progress in the affairs of these states, particularly in an election year that is approaching.
“We cannot plan without the buy-in of our governors so that we can stand together, believing that we share same aspirations.
“We will plan together to see how best we can deliver the interest of the party and ensure that victory is ours in 2023 general election that is by the corner. That is the essence of this meeting,” he said.

Abba Hassan said on Facebook:
“Of course, Governors are the backbones of the party, and they are the ones their support (is) hugely needed.”
Eloo Mistai Cocel Agbasi said:
“Can those governors even win the states for themselves without rigging, as it stand now. So how are they going to win their states for Tinubu?”
Aguma Kingsley said:
“With or without Governors APC will fall like the Walls of Jericho.”
