APC LG Chairman expelled for insulting Buhari


The All Progressives Congress, APC’s Caretaker Chairman for Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu, has been booted out of the party for insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.

Adamu’s strike-off from the ruling party’s membership followed a viral video of him hurling vitriol at Buhari alleging the President of non-performance in office.

The outburst, according to the Secretary of APC’s Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John James Akpanudoedehe has cost Adamu his seat and the party membership.

Akpanudoedehe made this known in a statement he released.

It reads in part: “The CECPC received and deliberated on the report of his (Adamu’s) infractions and recommendations of the seven-member disciplinary committee set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee to investigate the offences committed by Alhaji Adamu against the interest of the party.

“Recall the viral video in which Alhaji Adamu made unwholesome utterances against President Muhammadu Buhari, the Leader of the party.”

Continued: “He was also found guilty of bringing the image of the party to disrepute, thereby creating doubt about his leadership quality and loyalty to the party.”

It added: “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.”
