APC Chair: Tinubu’s Men Want Al- Makura As Adamu’s Replacement


Loyalists of President Bola Tinubu are rooting for  a former governor of Nasarawa State, Senator Umaru Tanko Al-Makura as replacement for embattled national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

Adamu, who fell out with the president owing to the role he played in the APC presidential primaries last year has already tendered his resignation letter ahead of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting.

Al-Makura who lost his bid to return to the Senate in the 2023 general elections was one of the leading contenders in the election for APC chairman last year before former president, Muhammadu Buhari drafted Adamu into the race at the last minute.

The former president also informed the APC governors to work for Adamu’s emergence in the elections.

Last month, Al-Makura, citing “pleas from revered traditional rulers and other leaders”,  withdrew his case from the ongoing election petition tribunal, challenging the victory of Mohammed Ogboshi Onawo.
