The national chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Abdullahi Adamu, the deputy national chairman (North), Abubakar Kyari, have formally stepped down from the Senate.
They both tendered their resignation in separate letters read by the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, during Tuesday’s plenary.
Adamu and Kyari said they resigned because of their emergence as national chairman and deputy national Chairman (North) of the ruling APC.
Until his resignation, Adamu was a third-term Senator in the Senate.
Adamu in his letter lauded leadership of the Senate President, saying:
“I must commend you for a charismatic leadership in which you treat all Senators equally irrespective of political difference.”
