2023 Elections: APC Chairman Admits Flaws In February 25 Polls

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, admitted on Monday evening that the conduct of the Presidential and National Assembly elections held on February 25 was not 'perfect.'

Adamu made the remark during his address at the meeting of the APC National Working Committee with the president-elect, Bola Tinubu; the vice president-elect, Senator Kass Shettima; and members-elect of the National Assembly. The closed-door meeting, which began at approximately 2.48 p.m., was held in the State House Banquet Hall in Abuja.

Shettima, Senate President Ahmed Lawan, House Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila, Minister of Works and Housing Babatunde Fashola, and Senator Godswill Akpabio were among the dignitaries spotted at the event. The development comes a few days after disgruntled members of the NWC called for the reformation of the party and his resignation to counterbalance the controversial Muslim-Muslim ticket of the incoming administration, which has stoked tension ahead of the 2023 elections.

Adamu, speaking at the event, congratulated all of the newly elected political officeholders, stating that they deserved victory after the February 25 elections. However, the embattled APC chairman conceded that the elections that produced them were imperfect. He stated, "I heartily congratulate all the distinguished men and women who have been elected.

I salute you all. You are Nigeria's new team. On May 29, this year, the responsibility for our nation's cohesion, peace, and growth will be placed on your shoulders as a team. "It is fair and honourable to acknowledge that the elections on February 25 were imperfect. We were not aiming for flawless elections. "There are no perfect elections in the annals of human history. We set out to conduct credible, free, and fair elections, just like all other democratic nations. This we did.
