The All Progressives Congress, APC has suspended its caretaker chairman in Adamawa for criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Chairman of the APC in Yola South, Suleiman Adamu trended on Tuesday after an audio clip emerged of him allegedly criticising President Buhari and pledging allegiance to Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
A statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mohammed Abdullahi, states that the party has resolved to suspend Adamu. In the audio, Adamu reportedly wished that PresidenBuhari was killed by coronavirus.
“As a party, we came across an audio clip that is widely circulating in the social media which emanates from the Stakeholders meeting of our party in Yola South Local Government Area. In light of the above, we had an emergency SWC meeting today (10/08/2021) where the audio clip was replayed, digested and deliberated upon.
“At the end it was observed that some of the words/remarks in the audio clip were most unfortunate and require further investigation. Consequently, a 7-man disciplinary committee has been set up by the SWC to investigate the issues in the audio clip and make appropriate recommendations for action.
“In order to ensure unhindered investigation and fair hearing, the SWC has resolved that the APC Caretaker Chairman, Yola South Local Government (Alh. Suleiman Adamu) who is a member of the State Executive Committee be suspended pending the outcome of the investigation by the 7-man disciplinary committee.
“Meanwhile, the APC Local Government Vice Chairman (Alh. Adamu Majekano) is mandated to take over as Acting Chairman, Yola South.”
