I still remain APC chairman in Adamawa – Bilal

Press Release

I want to thank all APC faithfuls in Adamawa, who have called to express their solidarity, following today’s rapacious actions of a few elements bent at plunging a virile party into crisis.

It needs restating not to misled the uninformed that only the National Working Committee, of the APC, reserves the power in a dispute or crisis to remove an elected chairman of the party. Our party guidelines are clear on this issue.

While we await the dust to settle on my purported removal as chairman, I am encouraged by the outpouring of Goodwill from party stakeholders who have said these grave desecration of the rule of law will never be allowed to prevail.

I want to reassure our party stakeholders to disregard the actions of motley crowd, of enemies within, acting the script of the opposition to plunge the party into crisis, at the verge of a crucial elections, that their actions has further reawakened the consciousness of party faithfuls to be vigilant.

Because democracy requires our eternal vigilance, otherwise we would be at the mercy of a few self serving politicians who will always act in ways to subvert popular will.

I want to urge every party member to remain calm as I still remain the chairman of the APC in Adamawa, and by Allah’s grace will serve out the remainder of my tenure, and leading our party to victory, come next year’s general election.

But it requires restating that the actions of a few exco officials, who acting out of strife, disrupted the serenity so long enjoyed by the party, to serve us a circus, of my purported sack will meet the resolve of a determined followership, to never allow evil to prevail.

I thank Senator Elisha Abbo and other prominent members of the party who have reacted swiftly to restate their unalloyed support of my stewardship as, a good omen.

This charade by a few persons who acting like bandits broke into our serene party Secretariat to do what they did will obviously not stand. We must never allow them truncate the tenet of internal democracy anchored on the rule of law.

Alh. Ibrahim Bilal
APC Party Chairman Adamawa State
