Announcing the reversal of his resignation when he addressed journalists at a stakeholders meeting in Bauchi yesterday, Adamu Lar said his decision to make a U-turn resulted from intervention of stakeholders from the Bauchi South Senatorial District.
He said, “After tendering my resignation letter, members of the state executive council of our party rejected it and prevailed on me to withdraw the letter because I did not consult any of the stakeholders before taking such decision. I have decided to withdraw my resignation today because I have seen reason to do so based on the intervention of the stakeholders and based on my respect for the party and people of the zone because I am not representing myself alone but the people of the seven local government areas under my zone.”
The seven local government areas in the district include Alkaleri, Bauchi, Dass, Tafawa Balewa, Toro, Bogoro and Kirfi.
It could be recalled that the vice chairman tendered his resignation on Friday at a meeting of the state party stakeholders meeting immediately after a press conference he held to announce his resignation from his position. He stated at the time that he resigned because of alleged bad leadership in the party in Bauchi State.
Responding, the state Organizing Secretary of APC, Alhaji Abdulkadir Gyangyan commended Lar for withdrawing his resignation letter and allowing reason to prevail after meeting with the stakeholders. He said the Vice Chairman took the decision unilaterally without consulting any leader of the party from the Bauchi South Senatorial Zone.
