Why I Was Removed As Chairman of Northern Senators Forum – Senator Abdullahi Adamu
The Northern Senators Forum (NSF) on Wednesday sacked Senator Abdullahi Adamu (APC, Nasarawa) as its chairman and replaced him with Senator Aliyu Wamakko (APC, Sokoto).
Mr. Adamu’s removal was announced in a letter read by the presiding officer, Ike Ekweremadu, shortly before the end of the plenary on Wednesday.
The letter signed by the forum’s Public Relations Officer, Dino Melaye, noted that Mr. Adamu was removed for ‘financial mismanagement and misadministration.’
Shortly after the announcement, Shehu Sani (Kaduna-APC), who is a member of the forum, alleged that Mr. Adamu and other executive members mismanaged about N70 million belonging to the group.
Mr. Adamu, who also attacked ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari, has however denied this allegation.
In an interview with Channels, Mr. Adamu said the allegation was raised against him because he rejected the passage of election sequence by the senate.
The senator on February 14 led nine other senators to oppose the Senate passage of the amendment to the electoral act.
