Following threats by the National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress for North-West, Mallam Salihu Lukman to sue the National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu over failure to convene a NEC meeting and breach of the Partys Constitution on Thursday, carried out his threat
Lukman had earlier issued an ultimatum to Adamu and Omisore to convene an emergency meeting of the National Executive Council to address the anomalies in the party or he would seek a court injunction to enforce compliance in line with the provisions of APC Constitution.
The face-off between the Kaduna politician and the APC national chairman had been a recurring case in the last one year.
Aside from accusing Adamu of running a one-man show, the APC National Vice Chairman for North-West also accused Adamu or reducing the party’s National Working Committee to a mere rubber stamp to approve important decisions singlehandedly take.
The crisis, however, took a different twist on Thursday when Adamu and Omisore were officially served the court summons.
“They were officially served this afternoon. In fact, I can even say confidently that members of the NWC are equally aware that Lukman has matched his threat with action,” a source at the APC secretariat told our correspondent.
In the suit filed by Lukman’s lawyer, Mohammed Abdullahi of Lexhill City Attorneys, the plaintiff gave the secretary of the party 30 days to respond to the summons.
