The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress are reportedly in opposition to the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, stand against the emergence of Principal Officers of the National Assembly.
Recall that, on Tuesday, Adamu in his opening remarks at a session with the APC Governors openly expressed disapproval of the announcement of principal officers of both chambers of Parliament, saying that the party national secretariat was not carried along.
A national officer of the party who spoke with Nigerian Tribune in confidence accused the APC national chairman of acting in bad faith as he revealed that the APC national chairman was privy to the list.
The source claimed, “He is angry that a certain lawmaker from the North whom he wanted did not make it to the office of Senate Leader.”
Three members of the APC NWC while speaking with some journalists in Abuja on Wednesday also revealed that the governors at the closed door session after the APC National Chairman outburst asked him to meet with the leadership of both chambers of the National Assembly to resolve perceived differences.
The governors also noted that his open disclaimer could be viewed as an affront on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu who was privy to the list before Senator Godswill Akpabio and Tajudeen Abbas, Senate President and Speaker, House of Representatives read it at their Tuesday plenary.
The NWC members, who distanced themselves from Senator Adamu’s claim that he was not aware of the list of favoured principal officers told journalists that the APC National Chairman may have resolved on his own to fight the Tinubu administration by his consistent attacks on actions traced to the President and Leader of the APC.
