APC could not differentiate between Campaign and governance from the beginning

“I was the deputy director of the policy directorate of the campaign; I was there from the beginning to the end.” “So many people came to join the group, some from even outside the country. One day, we were in a meeting, then one gentleman who heads one of the international NGOs in the country brought this list of 100 items that he was proposing that we should push out as the promise of Mr. President to Nigerians. “We circulated and asked everyone to study it and come back the following day so that we look at which ones we can own and which ones we need to reject. “I remember that number 1 on that list was to make the President say that ‘When I become President, I will not travel abroad for medical treatment’. “And I remember we rejected that immediately, because we said we didn’t know what this man was dealing with; we didn’t know who his doctors had been, how could we say this for him? “But you know what happened? One of us in the group just released the document.” Adesina backed Abdullahi’s claim, confirming that the president was never aware of any such promise, let alone agree to it. He said: “I can confirm that even the President himself, who was a candidate then, was not aware. The very week I resumed this assignment, I raised some things with the President. I said, this and this and this were promised, and the President said ‘When did I promise these things?’ “I said there is a document titled ‘100 things Buhari will do in 100 days’. He never knew about that document. He had to ask people to fetch that document for him, and it was the first time he was seeing it.
