The All Progressives Congress (APC), Caretaker, and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CPC) has ratified the expulsion of Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu.
Adamu was the Caretaker Chairman in Yola South Local Government Area (LGA) in Adamawa.
The expulsion was confirmed by Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary APC CECPC.
Akpanudoedehe said Adamu’s expulsion from the party takes immediate effect.
He said the decision to expel him from the party, was part of resolutions reached at the 16th meeting of the CECPC held at the party’s National Secretariat, on Wednesday, Sept. 1.
“The CECPC received and deliberated on the report of his infractions and recommendations of the 7-member disciplinary committee.
“The committee was set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee to investigate the offenses committed by Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu, against the interest of the party,” he said.
Adamu was earlier suspended by APC after he wished President Muhammadu Buhari dead.
Adamu at the APC stakeholders meeting held on August 8, 2021, had reportedly, said he would have wished coronavirus killed the president.
However, Akpanudoedehe said Adamu was found guilty of bringing the image of the party to disrepute, thereby creating doubts over his leadership qualities and loyalty to the party.
He called on party members to always demonstrate self-discipline and restraint, by desisting from acts and utterances that were inimical to the interest of the party.
