Amidst festering APC crisis, Tinubu meets party Chairman, Secretary

President Bola Tinubu met with the chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, and Secretary, Senator Iyiola Omisore at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, reports The Nation.

 

As of the time of filing this report, the agenda for the meeting was not known.

 

However, it came hours after the National Assembly appointed its remaining principal officers, a development the party kicked against.

 

Senate President Godswill Akpabio and Speaker Tajudeen Abass on Tuesday announced names of principal officers, including those of the Majority Leader, Minority Leader, Chief Whip and others.

 

Adamu, during a meeting with Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF), led by its Chairman, Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State on Tuesday, raised objection against the selections.

 

“I am just hearing as a rumour now from the online media that there have been some announcements in the Senate and House of Representatives. The national headquarters of the party, the NWC, has not given any such information or communicated about the choice of offices.

 

“And until we formally resolve and communicate with them (NASS leadership) in writing which is the norm and practice (it is not our intention to break away from traditions), whatever announcement is done either by the President of the Senate, Deputy Senate President, Speaker or Deputy Speaker is not from this secretariat,” Adamu had said.
