According to him, he has never been a member of any political party other than the APC.
“I have accepted my fate. I see it as Allah’s will. All I have ever wanted is for the APC to remain in power and this can only be guaranteed by our victory at the polls."
“There will be elections, I have my voter’s card, right. At least, they have not stripped me of that. Because I have never been a member of any political party other than the APC. So, don’t even expect me to join the PDP.”
Adamu was expelled following a derogatory statement he made against President Buhari. However, the former APC chieftain denied the statement, according to a report by Daily Independent.
APC expels Yola South LGA caretaker chairman, Sulaiman Adamu
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the APC Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) ratified the expulsion of the party's caretaker chairman in Yola South local government area of Adamawa state, Adamu.
A statement sent to Legit.ng by the national secretary of the CECPC, Senator John James Akpanudoudehe, stated that Adamu's expulsion from the party took immediate effect.
He said the decision was part of the resolutions reached at the 16th meeting of the CECPC held at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday, September 1.
What led to Adamu's expulsion
Before his expulsion, the APC had earlier suspended the ex-Yola South LGA chairman.
His suspension followed the discovery of leaked audio in which he wished for President Buhari's death through COVID-19.
In the said clip, the suspended chairman was reportedly heard saying that Vice President Yemi Osinbajo would have been a better president if Buhari had died.
