‘I’ve developed allergies for political activities’ — ex-APC chair Adamu quits politics


Abdullahi Adamu, former national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has announced his retirement from politics.

Adamu spoke on Saturday in Lafia, Nasarawa state capital, during the launch of a book written by Abdullahi Tanimu.

The book is titled: ‘Progressive governance: Showcasing the achievements of His Excellency, Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State 2019 – 2023’.

Sule is the incumbent governor of Nasarawa, having won his reelection bid in March.

Adamu, a former senator, was the first civilian governor of Nasarawa state from 1999 to 2007.

Speaking during the book launch, the former APC national chairman said he has developed “little allergies” for political activities and speeches.

“I am not only a retiree but I am out of politics. I’m beginning to develop little allergies for political activities now and political speeches,” PUNCH quoted him as saying.

 “So, forgive me, I will not make any political statements beyond asking for further and more support for the governor of the state.

“He needs all your prayers and goodwill to be able to succeed. So, to encourage the author for his good work, I will launch 20 copies of the book for one million naira.”

On his part, the author said he was motivated to write the book because of the leadership style of Sule and his infrastructural projects in the state.
