ADAMU RAISES ALARM OVER GOVERNORS’ ALLEGED ATTEMPT TO TEAR APC APART

The newly-elected Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Abdullahi Adamu has raised the alarm that some serving governors have contributed to the crisis rocking the party.
Declaring that state governors are leaders of the party in their states, he noted that the APC Constitution does not have provision for dual leadership in the states.
Some current and past governors have been accused of working at cross purposes to tear the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress apart.
Adamu, who made this known in his opening address at the 11th National Executive Committee meeting of the APC held at the Transcorp Hotel in Abuja, conceded that former governors are leaders in their own rights, urged serving governors to accord them all the necessary respect.
Attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Senate President Ahmad Lawan, House Speaker Femi Gbajabiamila and other critical stakeholders, who are members of the NEC.
The party crisis led to security operatives taken over the Buhari House national secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress APC, in Abuja, following reports of the sack of the National Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC of the party, Gov. Mai Mala Buni.
As early as 8am on that faithful day, policemen had taken strategic positions in and around the secretariat, restricting human and vehicular movements, in what they said was part of efforts to maintain law and order.
As against reports of his sack by President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Buni had insisted that he is still in-charge of the party, describing reports to the contrary as ‘fake news’.
