Adamu, also known as the “Bridge,” commenced his political career in 1977 when he was elected to the Constituent Assembly, which drafted the 1979 Constitution.

He started at Abdu Zanga Primary School in Keffi and finished at Laminga Senior Primary School in 1959.

Between 1960 and 1962, Adamu attended Government Secondary School in Makurdi, Benue state, and from 1962 to 1965, he attended Government Technical College in Bukuru, Plateau state.

Adamu graduated from Kaduna Polytechnic with an Ordinary National Diploma (OND) in Building and Civil Engineering in 1968 and a Higher National Diploma from the same institution in 1971.

Before returning for his HND, he worked as a maintenance supervisor at the National Electric Power Authority.

Mr Adamu began his career in the private sector after leaving school and working for the Northern Nigeria Development Corporation (NDDC) in Kaduna.

He worked as a Consultant Area Manager for AEK, a consulting firm, and was later appointed Executive Secretary of the Jos-based Benue-Plateau Construction Company (BEPCO).

Career in politics

He happened to be a founding member of the defunct National Party of Nigeria (NPN), which was formed from a political association, the National Movement, at the start of the Second Republic.

Nasarawa, his home state at the time, was part of the old Plateau state. Following that, he was elected Secretary of the NPN in Plateau state, and later Chairman.

Following the fall of the Second Republic in 1983, Adamu enrolled as a part-time student at the University of Jos to study law. By 1992, he had completed his studies and enrolled in the Nigeria Law School in Lagos.

In 1994, the new APC chairman was appointed to the National Constitutional Conference convened by Sani Abacha’s military administration.

A year later, on November 17, 1997, Mr Adamu was appointed Minister of State for Works and Housing, a position he held until November 17, 1997.

When the Abacha administration lifted the political ban, he joined the defunct United Nigeria Congress Party (UNCP), on whose platform he planned to run for Nasarawa state governor. Following Abacha’s death in 1998, that process was halted.

Following the restoration of democracy in Nigeria in 1999, he joined the Peoples Democratic Party as a founding member (PDP). He contested and won the governorship of Nasarawa State. Between May 1999 and 2007, he served as governor for eight years.

 

Adamu chaired the Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) from 1999 to 2004 while serving as governor.

In 2007, the year he left office, the former governor was elected to the Senate on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party to represent Nasarawa West Senatorial District.

He and ten other PDP senators joined the APC on January 29, 2014. The former governor was named Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture in the Senate.

He was appointed chairman of the Northern Senators Forum (NSF), but was ousted in 2020 amid allegations of “financial mismanagement and maladministration.”

Adamu and nine other Senators rejected the Senate’s passage of the election sequence during the amendment to the Electoral Act in 2020, which he later attributed to his removal as Northern Senators Forum.

Adamu was named chairman of the APC National Reconciliation Committee in September, an assignment that took him and members of his team to states where the party was factionalized or was in crisis.

Senator Adamu has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of Benue Cement Company, Gboko, and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Nigerian Television Authority at various times (NTA).

He is a married man with five children who holds the traditional titles of Sarkin Yakin Keffi and Aare Obateru of the Source in Ife, Osun state.

News Update?Osun Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Sitting Begins October 26

Latest Politics updatein nigeria

Osun State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal will on October 26 begin a full hearing of the petition filed by Governor Adegboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC) against the declaration of Senator Ademola Adeleke as governor-elect.

Lifestyle Nigeria reports that the tribunal made this pronouncement after concluding the pre-hearing session on Thursday.

The tribunal was asked to dismiss the applications of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking the discontinuation of the petition brought to it by Governor Oyetola.

Counsel for Oyetola and the APC, Lasun Sanusi, SAN, at the sitting of the tribunal argued that Adeleke’s, PDP’s and INEC’s reliance on a Federal Court High judgment was nothing but an abuse of court process.

Sanusi argued this while replying to separate applications of the trio, seeking the dismissal of the petition based on the already appealed Federal High Court judgment disqualifying Oyetola from contesting the election.

Citing Supreme Court decisions in the case of Jegede Vs INEC, 2021, 14NWLR, Pt 1797, page 409, the counsel said the court had ruled that the signatories to the letter conveying the nomination of a candidate were not the nominators; rather, the nomination was done by party members at the congress, hence, the judgment could not stand.

Meanwhile, the counsel for INEC, Prof. Paul Ananaba, SAN; counsel for Adeleke, Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN and counsel for the PDP, Dr. Alex Izinyon, SAN, agreed that any decision the tribunal would take on the matter would have to wait until the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court decided on it.

They noted that they just decided to argue the applications to have it on record, a position which the tribunal agreed with and put on record.

Also, in other applications totalling nine by the three respondents, they asked the tribunal to strike out some paragraphs of the petition on the grounds that they were either lumped together or not related to the 2022 election.

In response to each of the applications, Sanusi said all the cases cited by the respondents were misconceived, adding that they were not applicable in the instance case.

He cited the case of INEC Vs Otti, 2016, 8NWLR, where the Supreme Court hinted that INEC was supposed to be neutral, arguing that all the processes filed before the panel have not portrayed the commission’s neutrality.

Sanusi further argued that the applications filed by the respondents were only meant to prevent the tribunal from focusing on hearing the petition on merit, asking the panel to dismiss the applications.

Subsequently, counsel for all parties in the matter agreed to begin the full hearing starting with the calling of witnesses on October 26.

In his ruling, the tribunal declared the pre-hearing session concluded and announced that the pre-hearing conference report would be presented on October 17.
