Plot to oust Adamu as APC chairman thickens as Tinubu strengthens grip on power

Abdullahi Adamu

The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, has disclosed that the party’s loss in the March 18 governorship election in Kano State was as a result of selfishness.

The APC governorship candidate, Nasir Yusuf Gawuna, had lost to Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP).

Adamu, while speaking to BBC Hausa Service in an interview monitored in Lagos, said: ”Kano is among the states that we beat our chests and said that this is ours, because whatever we do, Kano is at the top of our list.

“But because of selfishness, we found ourselves in this situation. We shouldn’t have lost Kano, but everything that happened to a person, God knows.

“We had warned all APC governors in Nigeria to do away with any form of selfishness before the election, and we think it is that selfishness that led us to lose in a state like Kano”, he added.

Adamu blamed his party’s loss on those who, according to him, refused to do what they were told to do.

The APC chairman, however, said when the election noises die down, the party would take action against the erring members.

Adamu added that, God willing, the supplementary elections in Adamawa and Kebbi will be in APC’s favour.
