Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, and the party’s former caretaker chairman and Yobe state governor Maimarabuni held a closed-door meeting at the latter’s residence in Abuja on Tuesday.

This was revealed on the party’s official Twitter page on Tuesday night.

The two leaders are said to have had lengthy discussions on several issues, including the ongoing town hall meeting of APC presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, and the management of the party secretariat.

The development comes just two months after Adam accused Booney of having too many ghost workers in the secretariat and leaving a debt of 7.5 billion guilders.

The APC National Chair replaced six suspended department heads in the Secretariat.

The directors affected are Anietie Offong (Welfare); Bartholomew I. Ugwoke (Research); Abubakar Suleiman (Finance); Dr. Suleiman Abubakar (Administration);

For the past four weeks, the media has been flooded with reports of their dismissal and the appointment of a new helmsman to replace them.

In a recent media negotiation with journalists, Adamu defended his actions, revealing that the move was due to the need to sanitize the system.

He also denied allegations that the newly appointed replacement was a close associate of his.

While claiming he encountered a corrupt cesspool, late workers and a register of more than 200 names, including ghost workers, the APC chairman swore that his DNA would not ignore the anomalies.

But when our reporters contacted the fired directors, they claimed that the entire drama that led to their ouster was pre-arranged.

Abubakar Suleiman, a former APC administrator, accused the Adamam-led NWC of not telling them about their “sins” before putting them on “mandatory annual leave”.

Like some of his sacked colleagues, he also believes Adam is doing everything he can to disparage Booney’s government.

He said: “Adam lied. Nothing was wrong. The Secretariat was in good hands. Neither we nor anyone knew the necessity of his decision. It was an agenda. No one was prosecuted. I’m sure you must too. Heard what other directors have to say. Nothing went wrong anywhere.”

When asked where Adamu’s alleged N7.5 billion debt came from, he dismissed the idea, saying it did not exist.

“As directors, we don’t approve anything. Our job is to implement. If the party doesn’t think so, let the EFCC or other anti-corruption agencies be invited to investigate APC accounts, including secret accounts operated by the party’s leadership,” he lamented road.
