APC Chairman Removed From Office

Adamawa State Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Ibrahim Bilal, has been sacked, following the crisis that engulfed the party.

Bilal was impeached, yesterday, by 25 members of the State Executive Committee, who passed a vote of no conference on him.

They cited gross abuse, corruption, dereliction of duty, and anti-party activities, amongst others as reasons.

The SEC members also unanimously endorsed the Deputy Chairman, Samaila Taddawus, in an acting capacity.

A statement read to newsmen by Mohammed Abdullahi, Publicity Secretary of the party, said the vote of no confidence on Bilal was over gross misconduct.

According to him, “We the undersigned members of the state executive committee of the APC in Adamawa State wish to pass a vote of no confidence on the chairman of Adamawa State chapter of APC, Ibrahim Bilal, over gross misconduct.

“Our resolve to take this line of action followed the failure of the embattled chairman to respond to the allegations of gross misconduct leveled against him as provided for in the constitution. We view his failure to respond to the weighty allegations as acceptance of guilt.

“On August 26, 2022, 25 members of the state executive committee, issued a formal complaint to three executive officers of the party over constitutional violations which constitute gross misconduct in line with the spirit of fair hearing as provided by the constitution.”

The statement, however, exonerated the secretary of the party, Mr. Raymond Chidama, and the Treasurer, Yahya Hammanjulde after both responded to the allegations against them.

“The secretary and the treasurer duly responded and made convincing submissions and hence cleared their names.
