The statement accused APC’S national leader, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, of dabbling into a matter in which he should ordinarily not be involved.  Ugochinyere says Tinubu was instrumental in Kayode Egbetokun’s posting from Lagos to Kwara State as Police Commissioner.  By these postings, Ugochinyere says Adamu had failed the nation and jeopardized the entire electoral process.
