The embattled chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State, Ibrahim Bilal, has tendered his resignation letter to the party national hierarchy.His resignation came a few weeks after he was impeached by 25 members of the state working committee of the party.
In the resignation letter dated 13 September 2022, endorsed by the national vice chairman northeast, Comrade Mustapha Salihu, the embattled chairman begged for forgiveness from members of the party over the inconveniences his sudden resignation may cause.
“I write to inform you that I’m resigning from my elected position as the Adamawa State chairman of our great party APC.
“While the constitution of APC requires me to occupy the office until 2026, I will be grateful if I will cease from becoming the chairman immediately. I sincerely apologise for any inconveniences this sudden news may cause.
“Grateful for the fantastic opportunity you have offered me to serve this great party in Adamawa State. I wish to thank you personally for your graciousness and leadership.
“I hereby assure you of my unalloyed loyalty and commitment to the ideals of our great party and will do everything legally possible to advance its course,” the letter stated.
Aggrieved SWC members of the party have a fortnight ago passed a vote of no confidence on the chairman over alleged gross misconduct and immediately replaced him with his deputy Samaila Tadawus although Bilal has sought an interim order barring Tadawus from parading himself as the chairman of the party.
However, his resignation letter was silent on the ongoing litigation in which he sued the party state working committee for his impeachment.
