BREAKING!!! Abdullahi Adamu Emerges As APC Consensus National Chairman

Sule who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today, confirmed this while discussing the party’s readiness for the national convention set to hold on Saturday, March 26.
“Consensus is one of the requirements. it is provided in our Constitution and it is not against the Electoral Act, ” Sule said while defending the move.

He also said the party will put out a ‘Unity List’ by Friday – a development that Sule affirmed to have already been done.
Adamu, who was until recently the Chairman of the APC National Reconciliation Committee will be the third substantive National Chairman of the party, after Adams Oshiomhole.
Prior to now, Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala Buni, has been the Chairman of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) for the party.
