BREAKING: APC Didn’t Approve NASS Principal Officers Announced By Akpabio, Abbas, Says Adamu
Abdullahi Adamu said the announcement done by the Senate President and Reps Speaker did not emerge from the APC.
The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Adamu, says the list of principal officers for the 10th National Assembly announced earlier on Tuesday by Senate President Godswill Akpabio and House of Representatives’ Speaker, Tajudeen Abbas is not from the secretariat.
Adamu stated this on Tuesday at a meeting with the Progressives Governors’ Forum led by Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State.
He said, “You will get an update of the National Election in the national assembly sharing of powers particularly the leadership of the chambers. The election of the principal officers of the Senate by the Senate President and Deputy Senate President. The election of the speaker and the Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives have been determined and announced and their responsibilities.
“The remaining offices will be determined by the two chambers is yet to be done. I had a courtesy call on Saturday from the President of the Senate and his Deputy. The following which was Sunday, I received the visit by the Speaker and his Deputy Speaker coming to me for Sallah’s homage.
“But, I am just hearing as a rumour now from the online media that there have been some announcements in the Senate and House of Representatives. The national headquarters of the party of the NWC has not given any such information or communicated about the choice of offices.
“And until we formally resolve and communicate with them in writing which is the norm and practice, it is not our intention to break away from traditions. So whatever announcement is done either the President of the Senate, Deputy Senate President, Speaker or Deputy Speaker, is not from this secretariat.”
