All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday announced the expulsion of a chieftain, Sulaiman Adamu, for wishing President Muhammadu Buhari death.

Naija News recalls that Adamu, the Caretaker Chairman of the party in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State, had wished Buhari contracted COVID-19 and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo replaced him.

In a statement to newsmen,  APC National Secretary, John Akpan Udoedehe, said Adamu’s expulsion is with immediate effect.

He added that the decision to sack the party chairman was part of the resolutions reached at the 16th meeting of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) held at the National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.

The scribe added that the expulsion was based on the report and recommendations of the 7-member disciplinary committee set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee.

He accused Adamu for making unwholesome utterances on President Buhari, the Leader 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,” John Akpan Udoedehe said.

Recall that the Department of State Security Services (DSS) had grilled former Adamawa Governor Jibrilla Bindow over the comments made against Buhari at the meeting he organised.

The meeting was attended by Adamu, ex-Adamawa Speaker, Kabiru Mijinyawa; ex-Administrator, Yola West Development Area, Abubakar Sirimbai; ex-Commissioner, Aliyu Mustapha, and ex-adviser, Yusha’u Adamu.,

Adamu, during the meeting, said: “Even Buhari himself, what is his impact on the party? Of what value is he to us? How I wish he had contracted coronavirus, so that Osinbajo would take over”.
