Lukman claims that Adamu has been fostering resentment against the party’s selection of the National Assembly’s leadership.

Ignoring Party Decisions

According to Lukman, Adamu refused to adhere to the party’s decision to support Godswill Akpabio as Senate President and Tajudeen Abbas as Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Lukman further states that the party chairman did not campaign for the party’s chosen candidates and distanced himself from the party’s position.

Lack of Guidelines and Intervention

Lukman criticizes the Adamu-led National Working Committee (NWC) for failing to develop guidelines, as required by the party’s constitution, to guide the selection process for the National Assembly’s leadership.

Instead, the NWC approached the matter without any specific guidelines.

Lukman suggests that President Muhammadu Buhari’s intervention prevented a potential disaster.

Putting Party Above Personal Desires

The APC chieftain emphasizes the need for party leaders to prioritize the country’s welfare over personal ambitions.

Lukman explains that the decision to support a Muslim-Muslim ticket during the party’s campaign was a strategic move, but it necessitated ensuring that the diversity of the country was recognized in the selection of National Assembly leaders and other branches of government.

Mobilizing Resentment and Lack of Support

Lukman accuses Adamu of mobilizing opposition against the party’s decisions and failing to campaign for the party’s chosen candidates.

Instead, the party chairman claimed that more consultations were needed.

Lukman points out the repercussions of such actions, highlighting a meeting between the party’s governors and Adamu as evidence of the Chairman’s divergence from the party’s position.

Communication and Resolution

Lukman questions why Adamu did not utilize his position as a leader to communicate directly with Senator Akpabio and Hon. Abbas to address his concerns.

Lukman suggests that Adamu could have queried the candidates and sought clarification from them, or even discussed the issues with Asiwaju, referring to Bola Tinubu.
