North-Central group demands Adamu’s resignation, wants Senate president

A coalition of civil society organisations, under the aegis of Conference of Nigeria Civil Rights Activists, has urged the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, to obey the calls for his resignation in the interest of equity, fairness and justice.

The CNCRA said Adamu’s exit as APC National Chairman would ensure power balancing in the incoming Bola Tinubu ‘s APC-led government.

The group made the call in a statement by its Convener, Ifeanyi Odili, and Secretary, Sina Akadiri, in Abuja on Sunday.

The coalition said Adamu’s resignation would also be a great opportunity for the APC to assuage the feelings of Christians towards the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the party in the presidential election.

The CNCRA said, “Adamu should toe the path of honour and statesmanship by tendering his letter of resignation after the governorship and House Assembly elections.

“His action would be welcomed and commended by the Christians and it will also pave the way for the emergence of a ranking senator from North Central, to become either the President or Deputy President of the Senate in the forthcoming 10th National Assembly.”

The APC National Vice-President, Salihu Lukman, had earlier in a statement titled “APC Internal Dynamics and the Future of Democracy,” called for Adamu’s resignation and replacement with a Christian leader.
