Rumors Swirl as APC National Chairman Resigns, National Secretary Expected to Follow Suit"
Senator Abdullahi Adamu, The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC, is rumored to have resigned from his position as the leader of the ruling party. Speculations are also circulating about the potential resignation of the National Secretary, Iyiola Omisore.
Since the APC's victory in the presidential election held on February 25, 2023, which is currently being fiercely contested by major opposition parties and their candidates, led by Mr. Peter Obi of the Labour Party LP and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party PDP, Adamu has faced numerous challenges.
Influential members within the party have been calling for the resignation of both Adamu and the national secretary. Confidential sources within the ruling party and the Presidency, who prefer to remain anonymous, have confirmed to Prime Business Africa PBA on Sunday night (July 16, 2023) that Adamu "resigned on the orders of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu."
The embattled former chairman had scheduled a National Working Committee NWC meeting for Monday, July 17, as a prelude to the Caucus and National Executive Committee NEC meetings on July 18 and 19, respectively.
However, the fate of the originally planned meeting on Monday is now uncertain.
It should be recalled that the APC had initially scheduled the NWC, Caucus, and NEC meetings for last week but had to postpone them to July 17, 18, and 19, respectively, due to internal disagreements and intra-party politics.
On good authority, PBA learned on Sunday night that both the NWC and the President did not have a specific agenda for the meetings, which is why they were postponed, allegedly due to the actions of the national Chairman, Senator Adamu.
Furthermore, it has been authoritatively revealed that all members of the NWC are in agreement regarding the mandatory resignation of the National Chairman and his Secretary, Omisore.
The NWC members are also reportedly displeased with the alleged lack of transparency in the party's 2022 account audit, which they claim was obtained and submitted without any of the members being given the opportunity to review it.
