The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reporting the emergence of the former Nasarawa Governor and presently Senator of the Federal Republic, said it was a product of high octave intrigues that saw six other aspirants step down for him as the consensus candidate of the party.

Prior to the commencement of the convention on Saturday, former Gov. George Akume of Benue State, had earlier on Saturday revealed that six of the APC Chairmanship aspirants had withdrawn from the race.

Akume, presently the Minister of Special Duties, was, himself, a  frontrunner in the chairmanship race before the reported endorsement of Sen. Abdullahi Adamu by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Akume made the revelation in a letter addressed to the APC Election Sub-Committee, National Secretariat, Abuja.

Adamu was, therefore, declared winner at the convention after a voice vote in which the ‘ayes’ had it.

NAN reports that the convention was personally attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo.

Others are: President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, APC governors, former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other party members as well as delegates./NAN/SHARE THIS
