Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), submitted his resignation last night, according to reliable sources cited by Daily Trust.
According to reliable sources, Adamu, who was elected national chairman of the party at its national convention in March 2022, has sent his letter of resignation to the presidential villa in Abuja in advance of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s return from the African Union (AU) summit in Kenya.
One of the sources claimed that about 4 p.m. on Sunday, Adamu, a former governor of Nasarawa State, sent the resignation letter to Femi Gbajabiamila, the president’s chief of staff.
“He has resigned. The resignation letter signed by him has been sent to the villa. The letter was addressed to President Tinubu. But since the president is away in Kenya for the AU meeting, the letter was sent to his chief of staff,” the source said.
Also, a source close to Adamu corroborated this, adding that, “The national chairman resigned following a gang up by people around the president to embarrass him during the meetings of the party slated for tomorrow and Wednesday.”
A founding member of the party said Adamu resigned when he got wind that two influential personalities around the president had mobilised against him ahead of the meetings.
“He resigned because they have started to collate signatures to impeach him during the forthcoming meetings. He resigned to save himself from humiliation,” the top politician said.
