Northern Senators Forum has removed Senator Abdullahai Adamu as chairman, replacing him with Senator Aliyu Wamakko.
Deputy President of the Senate Ike Ekweremadu who presided over plenary on Tuesday announced Adamu’s sack and the immediate appointment of Wammakko.
Speaking with Journalists, Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central said Adamu was removed over alleged financial mismanagement involving a whopping N70 million.
The money was said to belong to the Northern Senators’ Forum handed down by Northern senators in the 7th Senate to those in the 8th Senate and left in the custody of Abdullahai Adamu when he emerged as Chairman.
The lawmaker told journalists that when asked to account for the money, the former Governor of Nasarawa State said “monkeys raided his farm house and made away with the it.
Adamu has been critical of some senate actions especially the reordering of election sequence.
Adamu and 7 other lawmakers had last week addressed a press conference attacking Senate position on the order of election arguing that the move was targeted at President Mohammadu Buhari.
Adamu’s sack comes barely few hours after his colleague Ovie Omo Agege apologized to the Senate over similar statement that the decision to re- order elections was targeted at President Mohammadu Buhari.
Senator Adamu declined making any comment on the matter at this time.
