What Tinubu Told Me After Resigning As APC Chairman - Adamu

A former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu has revealed his conversation with President Bola Tinubu after resigning from his position.

Adamu who emerged as APC Chairman in March 2022, resigned amidst the crisis in the ruling party.

Adamu while in office distanced himself from the choice of the principal officers of the Senate and the House of Representatives.

The former national chairman of APC had described the news of their appointment as a rumour.

The Senate President, Godswill Akpabio and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Tajudeen Abbas, announced the names of principal officers of their respective chambers at plenary on July 4, 2023.

President Tinubu eventually intervened and after a meeting in Aso Rock alongside, former secretary of the party, Iyiola Omisore, Adamu said the issue was a family affair and had been resolved.

Adamu resigned from office while President Tinubu travelled out of the country for African Union summit.

The decision of Adamu to resign from his position saw former Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje emerge as his successor.

Adamu in an interview on a Trust TV programme said despite what people might say, he was glad that Tinubu won the election when he was chairman of the party.

He said, “I have no regret. The reason I have no regret is that only what God wills will happen… God has made Bola Ahmed Tinubu the president of this country. The moment he won in the convention, I led the National Working Committee to his residence to congratulate him and to give him assurance that we would stand head and shoulders with him to work for the success of the party; and we did.

“No matter what anybody will say about my relationship with Tinubu, the fact remains that it was under my leadership that the APC won the election. I like Tinubu for one thing. When I last saw him after my resignation, he referred to himself as ‘this bouncing baby boy delivered by you.’ And he made my day.”

Asked why he resigned suddenly, Adamu said, “Politics is an amalgamation of actions and reactions and you have to find your bearing in them. I felt I had played that part of leadership. I was a minister in this country. I was also a governor and secretary of the Board of Trustees of a ruling party. I led this party called the APC to victory and delivered a whole new government to succeed Buhari.”
