Senator Abdullahi Adamu, emerged the new Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress after months of intense bickering, warring and bitter politicking within the ranks of the party. The former Governor of Nasarawa State became the helmsman of the All Progressive Congress on the platform and of the endorsement and support of President Muhammadu Buhari.

The President held series of meetings with the state governors before the national convention to gather their support for Senator Abdullahi Adamu. The other chairmanship aspirants were forced to accept Senator Abdullahi Adamu as the consensus candidate for the chairmanship of the party. Consequently, the other aspirants stepped down and Senator Abdullahi Adamu was unanimously endorsed via voice votes as party chairman.

WHAT DOES AN ADAMU’S CHAIRMANSHIP PORTENDS FOR THE APC?

Senator Adamu is an ardent loyalist of President Buhari and as such is expected to support the President’s anointed successor. It is widely believed that President Buhari plans to install an anointed candidate to succeed him in 2023. It is expected that Senator Adamu would not do anything that will undermine the president’s quest. The president believes Senator Adamu will always do his bidding.

The emergence of Senator Adamu as National Chairman of APC is purportedly aimed at stopping certain presidential aspirants whom certain powerful figures in the party does not want to succeed President Buhari. The status quo will concentrate power on a group individual over and above other factions within the party.

Senator Adamu’s activities as APC Chairman is also expected to reduce the influence of certain figures like Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the party. Tinubu was left out in the emergence of the Senator Adamu led National Working Committee. This is because of his presidential ambition.

The plot of the cabal is to do everything to stop Tinubu from becoming president in 2023. The plan is to put Tinubu’s ambition to rest. The cabal prefers a weak Southern candidate. Unfortunately, despite the plot, Ajiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu emerged the APC presidential flagbearer on the 8th of June at the APC convention in Abuja.

The emergence of Adamu was also designed to bury the 2023 presidential ambition of the current Vice-President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo and that of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele.

The new APC Chairman and the other member of the National Working Committee are expected to reconciled the various warring factions and splinter groups in the party. Senator Adamu should use his office to save the party from possible disintegration ahead of the 2023 general elections. All the aggrieved factions should be brought to the negotiating roundtable for the purpose of resolving the internal crisis and acrimony within the party.

The outcome of the current intricacies and complexities in the APC will determine how the ruling party will fare in next year’s general elections.
