APC group calls for Adamu’s resignation over Osun Gov’ship poll 


Group of the All Progressives Congress (APC) North-Central Forum, has called for the resignation of the National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, over the party’s defeat in Osun governorship election held last weekend, which was lost to the opposite party PDP.

While speaking with Newsmen in Jos, the Plateau State capital on behalf of members of the Forum, its chairman, Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said since the emergence of Adamu as the APC national chairman, the party has been going through rapid setbacks ranging from the defection of members to losing Osun State governorship seat, where the governor is an incumbent for that matter.

Zazzaga said, “Adamu’s arrogant posture and his non-tolerance of suggestion and advice has made many members of the party to be disenchanted with the party and have lost faith in APC as well.

According to him, “the way the PDP was strategising and the recent threat from the Labour Party, particularly at the national level, if the APC is not careful and urgently restrategize, the ruling party will be surprised in 2023.

“He called on the party leaders to urge Adamu to resign or call him to order and ask him to deliver on his mandate so that the party will not suffer defeat in 2023 because the election will be fierce from the national to state and local government levels, including that of the legislative arm.

He pointed out that Adamu is already failing the party and that if he continues to remain as the party’s national leader, they will suffer great loss in the 2023 general elections.”

Abdullahi Adamu had earlier stated the reason why the party lost the Osun election, he said “we lost the race not because we are incapable but because of the crisis within. We had a massive gathering of supporters a few days before the election in Osogbo. No one could ever anticipate that we would lose the election.

According to him, “Osun’s defeat doesn’t in any way mean that we will lose at the general election. We only lost one state out of the 22 we have; you see, we are still strong.”
