For making derogatory statements about President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled its caretaker chairman in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu.
The party’s Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) ratified Adamu’s expulsion from the party at its 16th meeting on Wednesday in Abuja.
A statement on Thursday in Abuja by the Secretary of the party’s CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe said that the expulsion takes immediate effect.
According to the Secretary: “The CECPC received and deliberated on the report of his (Adamu) infractions and recommendations of the 7-member disciplinary committee set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee to investigate the offenses 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.”
Akpanudoedehe further stated that Adamu “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.”
