APC Tussle: Adamu bows to pressure, calls for NWC meeting

Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has called for a meeting of the party’s National Working Committee.

The meeting planned for Wednesday, 3rd May 2023 was revealed in a leaked circulation to all NWC members.

This is coming slightly 24 hours after Adamu and others were taken to court by a member of the National Working Committee, Mallam Salihu Lukman, over an alleged breach of the party’s constitution.

Apart from repeatedly accusing Adamu of running a one-man show, the APC National Vice Chairman for the North-West lamented that he also reduced the NWC members to a mere rubber stamp to approve important decisions he singlehandedly took.

However, the problem took another dimension on Thursday when Adamu and Omisore were officially served the court summons.

In the leaked memo made available online, the notice read, “Distinguished NWC members, HE, the national chairman, has called the regular NWC meeting for Wednesday, 3rd May 2023.

“This notice is given early enough to allow our esteemed members to attend. Thanks for your attention. Good afternoon, everyone. The time of the meeting is 12-noon prompt.”

The agenda of the meeting was, however, not included in the circular.

A source at the party secretariat said, “There is just so much to discuss. From the issue of zoning the National Assembly seats to the NWC contribution to a smooth transition between the current APC government and that of the president-elect, and the need to bring in external auditors to look into the books before we hand over the financial report.”
