APC Delegates Orders Immediate Resignation Of National Chairman Adamu

Published

on

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been called upon to resign immediately by a group of delegates.

Ahead of the APC presidential primary on Tuesday, Adamu named Senate President Ahmad Lawan as the “consensus candidate.”

Members of the NWC, however, were outraged by the statement, dismissing it as “your personal opinion.”

Reacting, many said Adamu’s antics showed that he is working overzealously for “a small cabal including few shadowy but influential figures at the Presidency whose stock in trade is to drop the name of President Buhari, who is a worthy and highly principled leader, in pursuit of their nefarious agenda.”

According to them, Adamu now constitutes a “clear and present danger to continued existence of APC as a corporate entity”, capable of subverting Nigeria’s democratic processes.

“By this show of shame, Adamu has clearly shown that he is not fit to preside over APC. It is shameful that a man rehabilitated from political penury in March by President Buhari who made him National Chairman by consensus can now be trying to destroy the same party within three months,” said Mohammed Argugu, a delegate from Sokoto State.

Another delegate, Ms. Bintu Ibrahim from Niger State, said: “I no longer have confidence in Adamu to continue as APC Chairman.”

APC’ National Vice Chairman of North-West, Dr. Salihu Lukman, condemned Adamu’s “autocratic leadership style” by making weighty public statement in the name of APC without consultation with fellow NWC members.

Also, self-styled “leader of reformed APC”, Alhaji Buba Galadima, described Adamu as “a political snake” who once stabbed President Buhari in the back in 2003 as Governor of Nasarawa State.

Galadima, now estranged from Buhari, said “If President Buhari is someone who remembers past evil against, he would not even be shaking hands with Adamu today, much less make him APC Chairman given the very wicked thing he did against Buhari while Buhari was the presidential flagbearer of ANPP and Adamu the sitting governor of Nasarawa.”

At a meeting of the NWC meeting at the weekend, a source said the National Secretary, Senator Iyiola Omisore, angrily upbraided the chairman “for treating the rest of us as if we are children.”

According to multiple sources at today’s NWC meeting, Adamu had defended his position as the outcome of “my consultation with President Muhammadu Buhari”.

But President Buhari denied ever anointing Lawan as “consensus candidate” according to a statement by his spokesman Shehu Garba.

It was further gathered that the President was livid when news reached him that Adamu had announced Lawan in his name.

Adamu’s lie was further exposed by a declaration by 13 northerner APC Governors reiterating their earlier resolution that power should shift to the South after the tenure of President Buhari next year.

The northern Governors spoke after a closed-door meeting with President Buhari at the Presidential Villa today.

Flanked by other northerner Governors inside the Press Gallery of the Villa, Governor Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna State said: “Majority of us APC governors from the north have agreed that power should go to the South after President Buhari. This is the position we support.”

El Rufai’s words were echoed by the immediate past Acting National Chairman of the party, Governor Buni of Yobe State, who said “That is the position of we northern governors.”

Ironically, Lawan who is Adamu’s own “consensus candidate” hails from Yobe State.

Falsehood, Disinformation Won’t Win Elections, Tinubu Tells Obi

Published

on

Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), has urged Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, to warn his supporters against spreading false information.

Speaking on behalf of Asiwaju, Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Communications for the Tinubu Campaign Organization (TCO), claimed that Obi’s supporters have been spreading false information to the public in an effort to harm the APC candidate.

Recall that a report emerged online a few days ago, that the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Asiwaju, asking him to step down and support Peter Obi and take care of his health.

The President had via his official Twitter handle, debunked the report, calling it fake news, stating that it is a product of deliberate mischief with the intent to deceive the public.

Reacting, the TCO media Director asked Obi to disavow his supporters who are employing fake news against the former Lagos State Governor.

“We have come to a point where it becomes imperative to tell Obi to show leadership and disavow his supporters who are employing fake news and disinformation as deliberate tools to deceive and poison the minds of unsuspecting Nigerians,” Onanuga stated.
