The new APC deputy chairman, Abubakar Kyari also resigned his position as a Senator representing Borno North at the the upper legislative chamber.

Their resignations were contained in letters read on the floor of the red chamber by Senate President Ahmad Lawan on Tuesday, April 12.

In their letters Adamu and Kyari both thanked their constituents for the opportunity to represent them at the senate, explaining that their resignation was to enable them to assume duty in their respective new positions in the ruling APC.

Specifically, Adamu said Lawan has shown that all arms of government could come together to work as “one national government”.
