The North West National Vice Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Dr. Salihu Lukman, has leveled allegations against Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the party’s National Chairman, and Senator Iyiola Omisore, the National Secretary.
Lukman claims that the duo misused the sum of N30 billion generated from the sale of forms during the 2023 general elections.
In a statement titled “Rebuilding the APC to Reform Nigerian Politics: Task Before President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” Lukman accused Adamu and Omisore of reckless spending, disregarding the need for budgetary considerations as stipulated by the APC constitution.
Lukman further stated that Adamu and Omisore have operated without being accountable to any individual or committee within the party, effectively acting as autocrats.
He criticized Adamu for treating his fellow National Working Committee (NWC) members as mere appointees.
He said, “In their name, he meets other leaders of the party and seeks to manipulate party decisions to suit personal vested interests that are only known to him.
“Beyond all, there is also a clear case of reckless financial management of the party.
“With more than N30 billion realized during the sale of forms for the 2023 elections, Sen. Adamu and Sen. Omisore have embarked on spending extravaganza based on their discretionary decisions without any form of budget as required by the APC constitution.”
