The All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled the party’s Caretaker Chairman for Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu, for making insulting statements about President Muhammadu Buhari.

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 CECPC Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe, said the expulsion was with immediate effect.

The official statement said: “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.”

APC also said Adamu “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.”
