A Caretaker Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Yola South has been suspended for openly criticising Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari.
Suleiman Adamu, was on Tuesday suspended after a viral audio, in which he allegedly criticised President Buhari and pledged allegiance to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, surfaced, according to Sahara Reporters.
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 release, reads in part, “As a party, we came across an audio clip that is widely circulating in the social media which emanates from the Stakeholders meeting of our party in Yola South Local Government Area.”
