Sen. Abdullahi Adamu resigns as APC national chairman
Sen. Abdullahi Adamu has announced his resignation as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the ruling party.
Speculations suggest that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu played a crucial role in this decision.
Furthermore, this paper learnt that the party’s National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore, also tendered his resignation shortly after Sen. Adamu.
This move comes amid various challenges faced by Adamu since the party’s victory in the presidential election held on February 25, 2023.
Sen. Adamu did not support president Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s aspiration for the party’s ticket in the build up to the presidential primaries of APC.
Instead, he openly disclosed that the party will support former senate president, Ahmed Lawal to clinch the ticket in line with former president Muhammadu Buhari’s directives.
The situation forced Tinubu to make a caustic remark against Buhari and the party during a stakeholders meeting he held with top APC stalwarts in Abeaukuta.
During the meeting, Tinubu disclosed that he was responsible for Buhari’s election after three failed attempts to rule the country, noting that such goodwill in a sane environment should be requited.
Apparently miffed by such audacity, Adamu threatened to sanctioned president Tinubu for his disrespectful utterances against the president.
Prime Business Africa (PBA), disclosed that a trusted source within the ruling party and the Presidency, received verified information on July 16 regarding Adamu’s resignation under President Tinubu’s orders.
Although the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting was initially scheduled for July 19, Adamu had planned it to prepare for the Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) sessions on July 18 and 19, respectively.
However, the fate of the meeting remains uncertain following Adamu’s sudden resignation.
Rescheduled Meetings and Internal Disagreements:
The APC had initially planned the NWC, Caucus, and NEC meetings for the previous week but was forced to reschedule them to July 17, 18, and 19 due to internal conflicts and political disagreements within the party.
Information privy to PBA acquired indicated that the NWC and the President’s meetings were postponed at the alleged request of Sen. Adamu.
Additionally, it was revealed that all NWC members are in agreement regarding the mandatory resignations of the National Chairman and the Secretary, Iyiola Omisore.
Concerns over Transparency
One of the underlying reasons for the discontent within the NWC members is the alleged lack of transparency in the party’s 2022 Account audit.
They claim that the audit report was obtained and submitted in a secretive manner without allowing any of the members to review its contents.
This lack of transparency has fueled further dissatisfaction and contributed to the growing tensions within the party.
