The All Progressives Congress on Thursday ratified the expulsion of the party’s Caretaker Chairman in Yola South Local Government Area, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu.
The development is coming less than one month after the Adamawa State Chapter of the party suspended Adamu for allegedly wishing the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd) died of coronavirus in a viral audio leaked via social media.
His expulsion was contained in a statement titled, “APC Expels Yola South LGA Caretaker Chairman, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu,” signed by the party’s National Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, in Abuja on Thursday.
Akpanudoedehe emphasised that Adamu's expulsion from the party takes immediate effect.
The statement further explained that the decision was part of the resolutions reached at the 16th meeting of the CECPC held at the Party’s National Secretariat, Buhari House, in Abuja on Wednesday, September 1, 2021.
“The CECPC received and deliberated on the report of his infractions and recommendations of the seven-member disciplinary committee set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee to investigate the offences committed by Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu against the interest of the party.
“Recall the viral video in which Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu made unwholesome utterances on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Leader of the Party.
“He was also found guilty of bringing the image of the party to disrepute, thereby creating doubt on his leadership quality and loyalty to the party.
“The CECPC calls on party members to always demonstrate self-discipline and restraint by desisting from acts and utterances that are inimical to the interest of the party,“ the statement read.
