Senator Abdulahi Adamu, Former Nasarawa State Governor, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has announced his resignation as leader of the party.
Revealed that Adamu’s resignation was to avoid being sacked by his party.
It was gathered that Adamu was earlier asked to do the needful due to his poor support for President Bola Tinubu during the presidential campaign.
Recall pressure has been mounting on the national chairman to throw in the towel since Tinubu emerged as president and assumed office on May 29, 2023.
Adamu’s sudden resignation comes ahead of APC’s National Working Committee (NWC) meeting scheduled for July 19 by him in order to prepare for the July 18 and 19 Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) sessions, respectively.
However, It is not clear yet if the meetings will still hold.
The meeting of the same NWC, Caucus and NEC meetings scheduled for last week was moved to July 17, 18 and 19 following disagreements among party members before his decision to resign his position as national chairman of the party.
