If Adamu is not careful, we will remove him before the inauguration of the 10th assembly-Tinubu ally

According to a news that was published by Leadership paper Online this morning, it was reported that the National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, was now at the receiving end, as some key loyalists of the president-elect, Chief Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, have commenced moves to remove him from office for initiating a review of the zoning arrangement for principal offices of the National Assembly.

Recall that on Monday, the All Progressives Congress, APC, had officially announced the endorsement of Senator Godswill Akpabio (South-South) as president of the 10th Assembly and Hon. Tajudeen Abbas (North-West) as Speaker of the incoming 10th Assembly, at this development sparked protests by the aspirants that are seeking to occupy the National Assembly top seats.

Out of pressure, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, declared that the zoning arrangement will be revisited to stave off the barrage of protests and criticisms on Thursday.

However, LEADERSHIP paper, yesterday, gathered that the plot to remove Senator Abdullahi Adamu, was in force over suspicions that he is backing the move against the zoning arrangement, as a party source, who spoke to Leadership in confidence, under the condition of anonymity said that, Adamu’s position did not sit well with the loyalty of Tinubu.

It was reported that the associates, and close allies to Chief Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, were angry that following the rejection of the proposed leadership list that was released by the All Progressives Congress, on Monday, as the party’s National Working Committee members, have decided to meet on their own and are actively reviewing the zoning formula.

The source, who is a close ally of Tinubu and also in the pro-zoning camp, told LEADERSHIP paper over the weekend that, the game plan of those who are opposed to the zoning arrangement is known to them and they know how they are discussing with the opposition to corner the leadership of the party to themselves.

The source said, “There is no way they can succeed but, we will not rest until we achieve the main goal we are eyeing. The worst is that the president will delay the proclamation of the National Assembly until such a time that we get the required support and numbers to install the leadership that can work without friction with the new president and If Adamu is not careful, we will remove him before the inauguration of the 10th assembly.

We are very much aware of all that the National Chairman of our party has been doing, in the last four or so weeks. He has been demonstrating non-chalance and implicitly un-cooperative attitude since the discussions commenced.”

Further talking, he said for a fact, there is no law that is binding the president on a specific date and number of days for the proclamation and we will ensure all those recalcitrant members are brought on board.

“And I must shock you; this man is already aware that the PDP and other opposition parties are going to Uyo for a retreat and the purpose of that trip is map out strategies on how our party will be humbled during the inauguration of both Chambers,” the source added.
