painting and wallpaper residue


So the house I live in has wallpaper in the bathrooms. Well the wallpaper seams were starting to curl up and show... so I thought it would be a good idea to remove the wallpaper and then paint over the walls. So I finally got ALL the wallpaper off the walls with some wallpaper removal solution. So now all the wallpaper is off the walls and I scrubbed and sponged the walls to remove the residue. Afterwards I felt the walls and they didn't feel like they had any residue on it.

Well I started priming the walls *the primer has a tint to it cause I'm using a darker color* by rolling it on and i notice that there is still some white showing through... I thought since I was painting grey over white this was normal and I would have to put on a second coat. Well once the paint dried I started painting over the second coat and I notice the first coat is starting to come off and not sticking. Clearly the glue residue is still on it. So now I have these walls with paint rolled on it and now I don't know what to do! What is the best way to remove the glue residue from the wall with a thin coat of primer on it?

here is a picture of the primer I'm using btw so you know what type of primer it is

Pitch, ditch or otherwise get rid of the primer. What you need is an oil based primer or Gardz
