Anti-party: APC chieftain threatens court action against Abdullahi Adamu, demands chairman’s sack 

An ex-member of Board of Trustees of All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr Garus Gololo, has called for the sack of National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu for anti party activities.

Gololo threatened that he would be “approaching a court of competent jurisdiction to press the demand further for the removal of the APC National Chairman”, whom he has alleged has become a distraction to Mr President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as well as the entire party.

Speaking at a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, Gololo explained that his call was in reaction to Adamu’s disposition towards the outcome of the selection of National Assembly principal officers on Tuesday.

He also recalled what he refered to as ‘obvious betrayal’ by Adamu during the presidential election in which the party lost to Labour Party and in the race for Senate seats and House of Representatives.

While expressing disappoinment over the national chairman’s conduct, Galolo called for Adamu’s immediately removal as the only measure to save the ruling party from internal crises.

He also recalled that the ruling party has been enmeshed in internal party crises since the rejection of Senator Ahmed Lawan as the APC presidential flag bearer before the party presidential primaries, a candidate allegedly promoted by Adamu.

According to the former APC Board of Trustee BOT member, a protest match is due and also going to be staged soon in Abuja by a coalition of like minds and of course party stakeholders to further demand his removal from office.

He questioned reasons why the National Chairman of the party should kick against every consensus decision of the party stakeholders just to have his way.

Dr Gololo further said, “It is appalling that Senator Abdulahi Adamu, who was never the choice of the party stakeholders before he became the party chairman can be this dangerous to the party. 

“We all know he was handpicked by Maman Daura and others to emerge and it was a very painful thing that such a man who was not stakeholders choice should now turn against the party with gross misconducts. 

“We are also not happy because so many of us are not being sensitive to Adamu’s outburst and indifferent on the party decisions. And I also know that he is still venting his anger on the coming of Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the APC flag bearer during the primaries and subsequently emerged President of the nation. 

“So his rejection of the outcome of the National Assembly leadership election, is another slap to the party hierachy. It is a direct affront to those who have overlooked his misgivings since the elections which he deliberately failed to work for the party in Nasarawa state”.

“Tinubu, whom he never wanted before but the odd was against his choice of Senator Ahmed Lawan, whom he announced to the chagrin of many without consultations.”
