African Democratic Congress (ADC) has suspended Ibrahim Manzo, the former national vice-chairman, North-East, and 17 state chairmen for anti-partisan activities and statements intended to discredit the ADC.
The suspension was contained in a statement co-signed on Wednesday by the party’s National Chairman Ralph Nwosu and National Secretary, Said Abdullahi.
According to the statement, the activity of the suspended members violates article 15 of the Party Statute.
“The party’s former chairman in Abia was expelled; a replacement for the suspended state chairmen will be announced in due course,” it added.
Also, the party appointed Mani Ahmed, it’s presidential aspirant in 2015, as the chairman of the party’s board of trustees (BoT).
The statement said Mr Ahmed emerged as the party’s BoT chairman at the end of an emergency National Working Committee (NWC) meeting on Tuesday and critical stakeholders.
The ADC also called on the executivs at the ward, local and state level to continue building grassroots party structures to launch the campaign towards the 2023 general elections.
