Senate caucus denies endorsing Adamu as APC Chairman

All Progressive Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, yesterday, ordered the dislodgement of journalists from the party’s secretariat in Abuja.

An unidentified official adduced the urgent need to “remodel” the media centre as the reason for

the decision to dislodge reporters from the media centre furnished by Governor Yahaya Bello of

Kogi State and facilitated by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed.

But findings revealed that the action was to relocate the office of the national chairman from

the third floor to the ground floor where the media centre was situated purely for the convenience

of the APC national chairman of the party.

“You know the chairman is an elderly man. He can’t be climbing the staircase as regular as you can imagine in this electioneering period. Also, he deserves a simple location where he can easily drop

from his car and walk to his office downstairs,” a source privy to the arrangement said.

Furthermore, He added: “This did not go down well with the journalists, numbering over 50, who felt the development

may be part of a calculated attempt to stop them from keeping tab with the activities of the party

ahead of the primaries holding soon.”

It is unclear if the party would allocate another section of the secretariat to correspondents,

who have been forced to loiter and seek refuge under trees within the premises.
