Adamu Controversial Resignation as APC National Chairman


Senator Abdullahi Adamu, APC National Chairman has allegedly resigned following eruption of party crisis.

The ruling All Progressive Congress, APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has reportedly resigned his position due to undisclosed crisis rocking the party.

Following his alleged resignation as National Chairman of his ruling All Progressives Congress APC, Senator Abdullahi Adamu has now broken his silence on the matter.

Adamu tendered his resignation on Sunday night ahead of this week's meeting of the National Caucus and National Executive Committee NEC of the APC, that there is a gang up of opposition against him and the National Secretary of the party, Senator Iyiola Omisore.

It was gathered that there there are some forces within the party who are likely to meet with Adamu on Sunday night or early Monday to pressure him into resigning rather than been shown the exit door” said a party official privy to the internal workings of the party.

According to him, the move to oust Adamu would also see Omisore being eased out of the equation as some aggrieved members of the NWC have consistently accused him of running the party alone with Adamu.

Consequently, he said the controversial audit report of the party would be part of the issues to use against Adamu.

“Under our constitution, only the NEC of the party can appoint an external auditor to audit the accounts of the party but Adamu, after being forced to render financial accounts, decided to enlist his own auditor, bypassing NEC. He thereafter presented the report of his auditors to the NWC for ratification. The party has an auditor. Adamu should simply have allowed him to do his job and present his report to the NWC. After that, the NWC will go through the report of the National Auditor, deliberate on it and present to NEC, which has the powers to appoint an external auditor to go through our accounts. But this has not been the case”, the source added.

Moreover, some party officials are yet to comment on the alleged resignation, that Adamu has not brief the party on the reason(s) for resignation; and he declied commends pending the return of President Bola Tinubu from the African Union AU meeting in Nairobi, Kenya.

He said, “I won’t talk about the issue because the president is away. 

Hopefully, the President will invite him for more details before the party caucus meeting.
