The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has said that delegates collecting money from aspirants ahead of the party’s presidential primary were selling their conscience, which, according to him, is not proper.
There are allegations about APC aspirants giving out money to delegates to buy their votes, but Adamu said there is no evidence to that effect.
He also said that there was nothing unlawful about aspirants seeking the delegates’ votes, but added that delegates collecting money in return was not proper.
The News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, reports that Adamu said this in an interview with select Hausa service media organisations late Wednesday night
“I don’t have evidence that aspirants are sharing money with delegates, for me, it’s the delegates that are selling their conscience, which is not proper.
“Our delegates should know that anybody sharing money with them can’t be the right candidate for the party, he doesn’t mean well for the country. I don’t have a solution for the problem,” he said.
He further stated that any right thinking politician in Nigeria should be a member of the APC, while speaking about the 145 governorship aspirants and 25 presidential aspirants on the party’s platform.
Adamu said politicians were rushing to the party because it is the government in power with everyone that matters in the country as its member.
