For Wishing Buhari Dead, APC Expels Caretaker Chairman

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has expelled its Caretaker Chairman in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State, Alhaji Sulaiman Adamu, after being caught on tape wishing President Muhammadu Buhari dead.

In a viral audio clip early last month, Alhaji Adamu was said to have wished that the president had contracted the COVID-19 and consequently died.

While Adamu denied the voice in the clip, the state chapter of the party had suspended him and impanelled a committee to probe him.

However, in a statement issued Thursday in Abuja, National Secretary of the Party’s Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoedehe said the Committee has ratified the expulsion of Alhaji Adamu.

The decision was 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.
