The Punch reports that having congratulated Tinubu for his emergence as the party's presidential candidate, Kakanda said the growing crisis in Adamawa would do the party more harm than good in the coming elections.
“As a party stalwart and a stakeholder in Adamawa state, I must confess my joy without bounds on the outcome of the APC gubernatorial primaries. I state clearly that it was one of the freest, fairest, and most peaceful party primaries ever.
“The product of that exercise was the Senator Hajia Binani. She was overwhelmingly voted for as the most popular candidate and the choice of the Adamawa people in that contest polling 430 votes against her closest rival, Nuhu Ribadu who polled 288 votes.
“While I am sounding this warning timely to call such elements to order, and to dissuade further fanning of such disastrous ambers, may I call on Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to use his wealth of experience, leadership acumen, and political sagacity to nib this ugly trend in the bud."
Kakanda also noted that Tinubu has a duty to call the parties to order by means of a roundtable discussion so as to resolve the matter amicably as an in-house issue.
