The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled a chieftain, Sulaiman Adamu for saying he wished Vice President Yemi Osinbajo replaced President Muhammadu Buhari.
He was also disciplined for allegedly insulting the President.
Adamu was the Caretaker Chairman of the party in Yola South Local Government Area of Adamawa State before his removal.
A statement on Thursday by John Akpan Udoedehe, APC National Secretary said the expulsion takes immediate effect.
The scribe said it 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.
He disclosed that the party received and deliberated on the report of Adamu’s infractions and recommendations of the 7-member disciplinary committee set up by the Adamawa State Working Committee.
The APC condemned Adamu for making “unwholesome utterances on President Muhammadu 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.”
The CECPC told members to always demonstrate and restraint and desist from acts and utterances that are inimical to the interest of the ruling platform.
