The All Progressives Congress in Adamawa State has announced the suspension of the APC Caretaker Chairman, Yola South Local Government, Suleiman Adamu over holding a ‘wrong and unfortunate’ meeting where the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari, (Retd.), was the subject of “repugnant innuendos, abuse and the ill-will of members who wished him death from coronavirus.”
The party on Tuesday said it set up the committee to review the viral audio which emanated from the meeting called at the instance of the former governor of the state, Jibrilla Bindow.
The publicity Secretary of the party, Mohammed Abdullahi, in a statement, described words/remarks in the audio clip, which touched on the President, as “most unfortunate that required further investigation;”
Suleiman Adamu, who is also a member of the State Executive Committee, could be heard cursing and wishing the president ‘death by coronavirus’ in the audio clip, alleging Buhari’s colossal leadership failure.
He had said, “I don’t know why coronavirus did not kill Buhari. If the President is placed side by side with Osinbajo, I will pick Osinbajo and leave Buhari.”
Also, another voice in the viral video linked to one Abubakar Sirimbai, also said, “It is better for the accursed President to die so that his vice can take over the leadership.”
The seven-member committee is to be led by Saidu Maitalata.
