Ndume, Orji Kalu, Others Back Former Governor For APC Chairman

Former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume has backed former Governor of Nasarawa State, Abdullahi Adamu as the next national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The Senator representing Borno South in the National Assembly made this known during the inauguration of Adamu’s campaign office in Area 11, Garki area of Abuja.

Speaking with reporters at the event, Ndume said he was supporting Adamu because he is the most qualified and courageous among the aspirants.

He added that Adamu’s competence and blunt attitude to social and political issues made him support his ambition to become the next APC national chairman.

According to Ndume, the former Nasarawa governor can’t be bought and can not be intimidated by forces in the ruling party.

He said: “I am supporting Abdullahi Adamu because he is the most qualified and courageous among the aspirants. Adamu is somebody who cannot be influenced by money. He is not afraid to say anything in favour of whatever he believes in.

Other Senators supporting Adamu’s chairmanship ambition include the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege; Majority Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi; Majority Whip, Orji Uzor Kalu and former governor of Kebbi State, Adamu Aliero.
