Impeccable sources at the highest echelon of power within the APC say the former Nasarawa governor’s fate ‘is as good as sealed’
After months of horsetrading, two-time governor of Nasarawa State and now three-time Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Abdullahi Adamu, has been penciled down as substantive chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) come March 26, 2022.
Senator Adamu, impeccable sources say, is President Muhammadu Buhari’s choice and ”his emergence as good as sealed already,” one of the very authoritative sources told Prime Business Africa late Tuesday night.
Independent checks by this multimedia organisation late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning indicate that Mr Buhari’s choice of Senator Adamu is already positively sold to ‘the blocs within the political party.’
The ruling APC, which has been grappling with challenges as it counts down to its National Convention, now slated for on March 26, had reserved its chairmanship position to Adamu’s North Central Nigeria. This newspaper had also Tuesday night reported exclusively the list of all national offices as allocated to all the geopolitical zones.
The list which Prime Business Africa reported as having been approved by President Buhari on Tuesday evening, gave the National Secretary position to the SouthWest; National Publicity Secretary to the South South, National Deputy Chairman (South) went to Southeast, among others.
Abdullahi Adamu was governor and served out two tenures of eight years in Nasarawa between may 29, 1999 and May 29, 2007 under the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) . He cross-carpeted to the APC during the tenure of former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015 as the ex-president sought to retain power in a keenly contested election he eventually lost to the incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari of the APC.
He has been Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria since 2011.
Authoritative sources within the APC and the Presidency said that Senator Adamu was chosen by Buhari and his men ”because of his political prowess, experience and grace.”
