APC’s departmental directors suspended by national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, on Friday ordered all departmental directors at the party headquarters to proceed on an indefinite suspension.
This is said to be part of Adamu’s reorganization process at the party’s national secretariat.
Reports said he has also embarked on remodeling the secretariat, relocating his office from the third to the ground floor.
After assuming office on April 1, Adamu had hinted that he may probe the staff of the secretariat, especially its directors.
He said the party could not continue to carry on with the old way of doing things, adding that his administration will have zero tolerance for failure.
“As for you the director of administration, you have no hiding place. We will count on your loyalty to the party. It is in God’s pleasure that we are here at the helm of affairs of this party. We have come with a very open mind but you have to reciprocate in the same spirit.
“.. Definitely by the will of God Almighty, the Secretariat, we need to look at you but I am not saying anything today until the transition committee submits its report.
“It is my hope that by the time the report is submitted, you have what they call a clean bill of the ledger, that is my prayer. Right?
“We have zero tolerance for failure in this new dispensation of our great party”, he had declared.
He immediately set up a transition committee headed by a former Governor of Jigawa State, Ali Saad Birnin Kudu to study the handing over note of the defunct Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) and other sundry matters affecting the national secretariat of the party.
On Friday however, Adamu, based on the committee’s recommendations decided to suspend the directors.
Some of the departments affected include those of administration, organization, welfare, strategy, legal and publicity.
