The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reached a crescendo with the Deputy National Organising Secretary of the party, Nze Duru, confirming the resignation of the National Chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.
He also added that the Deputy National Chairman, North, Abubakar Kyari will take over as the acting National Chairman in line with the constitution of the party.
The party chieftain stressed that he cannot confirm if the National Secretary of the party, Senator Iyiola Omisore has resigned.
Nze disclosed this on Monday while speaking to journalists in his office in Abuja.
His words: “One can confirm, yes, credible information that the Chairman of the party has stepped down as the chairman of the party and meetings are currently ongoing.”
“I do not have the information if the secretary has resigned. There is an expectation that he should and I also believe that being a seasoned politician who has played at the highest level, he will always act in the interest of the party.”
Duru said he expected Omisore to tender his resignation for the sake of the party, adding that the process leading to the transition was ongoing, with various caucuses currently meeting.
Duru noted: “We are not expecting a caretaker committee and I did make the point that meetings are going on across all the caucuses of the party, the various leadership in the party.
