The Adamawa State Chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the Yola South Local Government Caretaker Chairman of the party, Alhaji Suleiman Adamu, for allegedly attacking President Muhammadu Buhari on social media.
A press release issued by the Publicity Secretary of the party in the state, Mohammed Abdullahi, states that the APC was disturbed by the audio.
In the audio, Adamu allegedly wished that Buhari was killed by coronavirus.
Adamu allegedly spoke at a reconciliation meeting chaired by former Adamawa state governor, Jibrilla Bindow.
The APC statement, signed by the state Caretaker Publicity Secretary, Hon Mohammed Abdullahi, said the party had noted the audio clip, following which it called an emergency state working committee (SWC) meeting where the clip was replayed and deliberated upon.
“At the end, it was observed that some of the words in the audio clip were most unfortunate and required further investigation.
“Consequently, a seven-man disciplinary committee has been set up by the state working committee to investigate the issues in the audio clip and to make appropriate recommendations for action,” the statement said.
Those in the committee are Alhaji Saidu Maitalata Naira (chairman) and Barr Shagnah Maboyofe, secretary.
Members of the committee are Hon Mohammed Raji, Hon Abdullahi Wali, Hon Shadrack Obed, Alhaji Babanguda Talase, and Mr Haruna Jonah.
The party said it had to suspend the Yola South APC caretaker chairman to ensure unhindered investigation.
