Revealed: Why Buhari May Jettison Abdullahi Adamu As APC Chairman

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, APC national chairman

As the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) continues to seek avenues to swim out of the murky waters it has found itself in recent weeks, it appears there is not yet an end in sight for the crisis that has beclouded the party.

It is understood that recent high-level decisions may give in to pressure and need to stabilise the party.

Quoting an undisclosed authoritative source, Prime Business Africa reports that a high-powered delegation, led by a saddened high-ranking minister who has the ears of President Muhammadu Buhari left the country for London Thursday night to meet the President who is currently on medical leave to protest his choice of Senator Abdullahi Adamu as APC Chairman.

The online news platform reports that presumptively, chances are that the President would give in to the powerful minister’s request and drop his choice of Senator Adamu from North Central as APC chairman during the party’s convention.

The APC has been engulfed in massive in-house squabbles that have seen the National Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Gov. Mai Mala Buni removed from office and replaced by his Niger State counterpart Sani Bello.

Buni has, however, maintained that he remains the party Chairman and is set to take back his position as soon as he returns from his medical leave abroad.

Another chieftain of the APC and governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai admitted that Buni willingly transmitted power to Bello, but that they soon discovered that Buni’s committee had no plan of conducting the March 26 convention but was making secret moves to postpone it on the strength of a court injunction.

According to El-Rufai, President Muhammadu Buhari was informed of this and he swiftly ordered that Bello takes over the affairs of the party permanently.
