Adderley was originally a member of the Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) under Lynden Oscar Pindling. However, Adderley left the PLP in 1965 and established the National Development Party (NDP) political party. He returned to the PLP shortly before the Bahamas achieved independence from the United Kingdom in 1972.
Adderley retired from politics, remaining an active attorney as of 2010. In September 2010, Adderley appeared in the documentary film On the Wings of Men, about Lynden Oscar Pindling by Bahamian filmmaker Calvin Harris.
Adderley died on 19 September 2012, aged 84, and was given a state funeral on 28 September.
