APC Chairman, Adamu Reverts Buni’s Decisions, Directs Withdrawal Of Court Cases

National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, has begun to revert some decisions taken by his predecessor and Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala.

Adamu had disclosed his plans to probe into the finances of the party in less than one week after he assumed the chairmanship position.

According to reports, Buni had given standing instructions to lawyers representing the APC to appeal court judgments challenging the conduct of congresses supervised by the caretaker committee.

One of the appealed judgments sought for Federal High Court to recognize Akwa Ibom State faction of the APC led by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Senator Godswill Akpabio, over that of the erstwhile Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe.

However, Adamu in a letter signed by the Head, Legal Services of the APC, addressed to Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) & Company dated April 6, 2022, ordered all cases appealed by Buni’s committee be   immediately withdrawn from court.

The letter titled, ‘Notice of Withdrawal of Instruction’, relates to a case marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1635/2021 between Stephen Ntukekpo and three others vs. the APC and three others

It read in part, “I have the instruction of the national legal adviser to convey the decision of the leadership of the party to obey the judgment in respect of the above captioned suit having been served with the same.

“Our instruction on the above matter was terminated at the Federal High Court. Consequently, the party is not interested in pursuing the appeal in respect of the above matter.

“I have further instructions of the national legal adviser to request that you withdraw all the processes filed on behalf of the party and H.E. Mai Mala Buni, the erstwhile national chairman of the CECPC, at the Court of Appeal.”

It was learnt that the APC had begun withdrawing all the cases from the Court of Appeal as APC lawyer, Adeniyi Akintola, informed the court that the party would be withdrawing its appeal, effectively recognizing Akpabio’s faction over that of Akpanudoedehe.

According to top sources in the APC, Adamu’s new approach could destabilise the party.

An APC chieftain, who spoke on condition of anonymity said, “The best thing for Senator Adamu to have done was to allow the cases to run their course. There are over 200 cases in court at the moment. He should have let them continue.

“What the new national chairman is doing now is to reverse Buni’s actions and those who feel slighted will be forced to leave the party.
