Sen. Abdullahi Adamu, The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Sunday announced his resignation as the leader of the ruling party.
New Telegraph gathered from reliable sources that Senator Adamu resigned his position on the orders of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Correspondingly, the National Secretary of the party, Iyiola Omisore also tendered his resignation minutes after.
It would be recalled that Adamu, former Governor of Nasarawa State has been facing numerous battles since the party won the presidential election on February 25, 2023.
Speaking on the development, Prime Business Africa (PBA) on Sunday, July 16 said it received the unvarnished affirmation from reliable sources within the ruling party and the Presidency that Adamu “resigned a few minutes ago on the orders of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.”
However, the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting was scheduled for July 19th by the embattled former Chairman in order to prepare for the July 18 and July 19 Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) sessions, respectively.
What becomes of the meeting originally planned for Monday is now a matter of conjecture.
Recall that the APC had scheduled the same NWC, Caucus and NEC meetings for last week but had to move it to July 17, 18 and 19 owing to internal disagreements and intra-part politics.
According to information obtained by PBA on Sunday night, the NWC and the President’s meetings were postponed, purportedly at the request of Senator Adamu.
It was also gathered authoritatively that all members of the NWC ” are on the same page” regarding the compulsory resignation of the National Chairman and his Secretary, Omisore.
The NWC members are also said to be miffed by the alleged lack of transparency in the party’s 2022 Account audit, which they said was “surreptitiously secured and submitted without any of the members sighting it.”
