The All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) has ratified the expulsion of the Party’s Caretaker Chairman of Yola South Local Government Area, Adamawa State, Sulaiman Adamu.
According to a statement issued and signed on Thursday by John James Akpanudoedehe, the party’s National Secretary, Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), his expulsion from the party takes immediate effect.
Senator Akpanudoedehe said the decision is 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 7-member disciplinary committee setup by the Adamawa State Working Committee to investigate the offences committed by Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu against the interest 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.
Recall the viral video in which Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu made unwholesome utterances on President Muhammadu Buhari, the Leader of the Party saying it would have been better if coronavirus had killed president Muhammadu Buhari saying Osinbajo would have been a better replacement.
And following this, the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State, has suspended the caretaker party chairman of Yola South local government, Sulaiman Adamu for insulting president Muhammadu Buhari.
The party during its State Working Committee (SWC) meeting, also constituted a 7-man disciplinary committee led by Saidu Naira to investigate allegations of gross indiscipline against the suspended chairman and his co-travellers.
The statement had read in part” 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.
“In the 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.
“Finally, we urge our Stakeholders at all levels not to allow unpleasant comments/remarks during Party meetings of any nature,” the statement read.
