He was the personal assistant of Solomon Lar who was the first National chairman of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) and the former governor of Plateau state on the Nigerian People's Party (NPP) platform during the Nigerian Second republic.
Many years he was a follower of the president Buhari and, therefore, many people believe that it has influenced the choice of the president when he appointed Adamu to this position.
He was one of the attendants of General Buhari to Bauchi State during elections of 2007 to support Isa Yuguda as governor's candidate of ANPP at that time.
He also was the minister of education in 2016 and still holds this position today.
Today Mallam Adamu Adamu is the minister with one of the longest services in Nigeria. We don't know his term for certain, but he will be on post a half a year at least.
