APC Leadership Crisis Deepens, as NWC Members Accuse Adamu of Taking Unilateral Decision

The brewing crisis within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) appeared to have taken another dimension as members of the National Working Committee (NWC) have accused the National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu of  rendering the NWC redundant.

To this end, the NEC members served a notice on the chairman that henceforth, any decision taken by Adamu or any other party functionary, which require the approval of the NWC as enshrined in the APC constitution would be considered as illegitimate and an infringement on the jurisdictional scope of the NWC, unless otherwise confirmed as validly approved decisions of the NWC or any other legitimate organ of the party..

The NWC members said no one was  elected at the March 26, 2022 National Convention to warm seats or offices in the National Secretariat.

In a statement issued Tuesday titled, “APC and the Need for Vigilance: Urgent Call for Intervention”, and jointly signed by the National Vice Chairman, North-West, Dr. Salihu Lukman and the  National Vice Chairman, South-West, Mr. Isaacs Kekemeke, the NWC members lamented that within two months in the lifespan of  Adamu-led leadership, critical decisions about the affairs of the party were being taken unilaterally by Adamu.

They expressed worry that  every effort to get the Chairman to respect the authority of the NWC as elected was proving very difficult.

They stated that they were compelled to make this statement following serial postponement of the scheduled NWC meetings, twice within 48 hours.

The party Chieftains noted that they were convinced beyond doubt that this was a deliberate attempt to foist a fait accompli on the NWC on fundamental issues that affect our great party.
