The sacked national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdulahi Adamu, was fired because his mission was to truncate the presidential ambition of President Ahmed Bola Tinubu.
Ebubeagu Felix Okafor, a chieftain of APC in Enugu State, stated this on Wednesday during a programme monitored by our correspondent in Enugu.
Quoting him, “Adamu is no longer feat to be the national chairman because he was antagonistic to President Tinubu’s presidency. The prelude to APC’s presidential election showed that Adamu coerced the party towards adopting Ahmad Lawan, then Senate president.
“Adamu was brought out to truncate the ambition of Tinubu by northern cabal. Adamu with his jaundiced bias did not care for equity. It was northern governors, led by El-Rufai, that jeopardised Adamu’s plot. Then during the presidential campaign, Adamu wasn’t following Tinubu. So he has to be shown the way out.”
Okafor claimed Adamu wanted to replicate how he, in conjunction with former vice-president Atiku Abubakar, destroyed PDP to make former president Goodluck Jonathan fail his reelection bid.
He said, “Adamu wanted APC to lose the 2023 presidential election. Adamu was among the cabal that destroyed PDP. Adamu and Atiku Abubakar are very close. Adamu wanted Lawan to win, so that Atiku will defeat him in the main contest. Under Adamu, APC didn’t sponsor APC party agents as well as campaigns. He starved APC of funds.
“After the election, Adamu continued to counter the president, including who should be what at the National Assembly. They have shown him what he deserves.”
Adamu is a former works minister as well as ex-governor of Nasarawa State.
