Adamu, Ex-PDP Governor Docked Over ₦15bn Fraud May Be Next APC Chairman

Share This

There are strong indications that power blocs in the All Progressives Congress (APC) have settled for Abdullahi Adamu, a former Nasarawa state Governor, to succeed Adams Oshiomhole as the party's national Chairman.

Ahead of its national convention slated for March 26, the party zoned the chairmanship to the North-Central geopolitical zone. This was contained in a document signed by Salisu Na’inna Dambatta, the party’s Director of Publicity and dated March 9.

Meanwhile, there are credible reports that President Muhammadu Buhari and a group of Governors headed by Kaduna state's Governor Nasir El-Rufai, have thrown their weights behind Adamu, the former Nasarawa Governor who is currently serving in the Senate.

El-Rufai has given credence to this in his recent interview with Channels Television, although he did not mention the name of the anointed candidate.

“The president was reluctant to even nominate who is going to be the chairman of the party because he said, you know, I'm not contesting, I want to hand over this party to a strong leadership to ensure it continues. So I'm not interested in who's the party chairman, unlike in 2019 when I was contesting.
“But we said Mr. President, all of us are state governors, we have an influence on who is the state chairman of the party, so it's only sensible and logical for us to give you the opportunity to guide us on who you think we should support as the national chairman. We forced him literally, he didn't want to do it," Governor El-Rufai said.
Reporters however, takes a dive into the profile of Adamu as he is being positioned to head the governing party.
Adamu's journey into politics was towards Nigeria's transitioning to the short-lived second republic.

In the late 1970s, he was elected to the Constituent Assembly, which drafted the constitution for the republic.
