10th National Assembly: “You didn’t work for the party’s victory in the election; you don’t deserve to be president of the Senate,” Adamu strikes Kalu.

Abdullahi Adamu, the National chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC has said that there is nothing he can do to counter the decision of the party on who will emerge Senate President and his deputy in the 10th National Assembly
