“Adamu now constitutes a clear and present danger to the continued existence of APC as a corporate entity.
“By this show of shame, Adamu has clearly shown that he is not fit to preside over APC.
“It is shameful that a man rehabilitated from political penury in March by President Buhari who made him national chairman by consensus can now be trying to destroy the same party within three months.”

Another delegate, Ms. Bintu Ibrahim from Niger state, said:

“I no longer have confidence in Adamu to continue as APC chairman.”

Adamu reportedly chases journalists out of APC national secretariat

Legit.ng had earlier reported that Senator Adamu has reportedly asked accredited journalists covering the party activities to vacate its national secretariat in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

One of the security operatives at the secretariat, who passed the information to journalists and asked them to leave the party’s secretariat premises, said they were acting on the instruction of the national chairman.

He said Adamu told them to send journalists out of the secretariat on the ground that he was returning to the secretariat to hold a meeting and the place was too crowded.

Meanwhile, Legacy Transformation Initiative, a policy formulation, and analysis hub has lamented the inducement of delegates by Nigerian politicians as seen in the just concluded primary election held by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The non-partisan group called on the ruling APC not to toe the path of the PDP ahead of its convention.

It said it will be a stain on the reputation of the party if its delegates are induced monetarily as it was in the case of the opposition party.
