Adamu described the constitution of a panel to probe his administration by Al-Makura as a mismanagement and misplacement of the state resources.

His words: “Al-Makura’s decision to probe me is being carried out to see if I will be forced into accepting the abuse of democratic process enshrined in the constitution of our party, APC, in the process of selecting a governorship aspirant of the party for the 2019 elections.”

On the lease agreement for the management of Keffi Hotels, Adamu said a private company with which he is associated, Pan-Afric Resources Limited, entered into a lease agreement with the late Plateau State Military Administrator, Col. Joshua Madaki in 1990/1991, five years down the line before the creation of Nasarawa State.

Adamu said he will not succumb to “blackmail and intimidation” over his political stand with Al-Makura, insisted that the Farin Ruwa project was never abandoned.
