Leaked Audio: Adamawa APC Suspends Council Caretaker Chairman Over Buhari Hate Speech, Death Wish

After condemning the libel against Buhari and the wish for him to be declared dead by Coronavirus, the All Progressives Congress, APC Adamawa State Chapter, has suspended the party's Yola South Caretaker Chairman, who was blamed for the insult and death wish, according to leaked audio that went viral on social media.

The state party leadership's disappointment and disapproval of such libel, insult, and a death wish against anyone, let alone the personality of the country's President, who was even elected under the ruling party, was revealed in a press release signed by the Party's State Caretaker Publicity Secretary, Hon. Mohammed Abdullahi, on Tuesday.

The complete text of the PRESS RELEASE is as follows:

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.

In the end, it was observed that some of the words/remarks in the audio clip was most unfortunate and requires 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.


THE COMMITTEE MEMBERS ARE AS FOLLOWS:

  1. Alh. Saidu Maitalata (Naira)… Chairman
  2. Barr. Shagnah Pwamaddi… Secretary
  3. Alh. Abdullahi Wali … Member
  4. Alh. Mohammed Raji Suleiman.. Member
  5. Mr. Obed Shadrach … Member
  6. Alh. Babangida Talase…. Member
  7. Mr. Jonah Haruna … Member

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.
Thank you.
