Adamu resigns as APC chairman

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has reportedly resigned from his position.

Daily Trust newspaper reports that Mr Adamu resigned on Sunday night.

He had also told the newspaper that he would not speak on his purported resignation until President Bola Tinubu returned from Kenya where the president is attending the Fifth Mid-Year Coordination Meeting.

“I won’t talk about the issue because the president is away,” Mr Adamu was quoted as saying.

However, the newspaper reported Monday morning that the APC chairman submitted his letter of resignation to Femi Gbajabiamila, the chief of staff to the president, quoting credible sources.

Mr Adamu was a senator representing Nasarawa West before his emergence as the national chairman of the ruling party last year.

He also served as the Nasarawa State governor between 1999 and 2007.
