The national vice chairman of the All Progressives Congress for North-West, Mallam Salihu Lukman, on Thursday, carried out his threat to sue the national chairman, Abdullahi Adamu, and national secretary, Iyiola Omisore, for allegedly breaching the Constitution of the party.

The development is coming on the heels of the one-week ultimatum issued by Lukman to Adamu and Omisore to convene an emergency meeting of the National Executive Council to address the anomalies in the party.

Lukman warned that failure to summon the NEC meeting would make him seek a court injunction to enforce compliance in line with the provisions of the APC constitution.

The face-off between the Kaduna State politician and the APC national chairman has been a recurring case in the last one year.

Aside from repeatedly accusing Adamu of running a one-man show, the APC national vice chairman for North West lamented that Adamu had also reduced the National Working Committee members to mere rubber stamps to approve important decisions he single handedly takes.

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.
