The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress of Adamawa, Ibrahim Bilal, has resigned from office few weeks after his purported impeachment by some members for the state working committee of the party in Adamawa State while Alhaji Samaila Tadawus ,the deputy takes over.

The publicity secretary of the state chapter of the APC, Mohammed Abdullahi, on Friday, confirmed Bilal’s resignation in Yola . According to a report the resignation letter was allegedly written by Bilal, on 13th September, and addressed to the National Chairman of the APC, through the North-East zonal vice chairman of the APC, which stated ” While the APC constitution allows me to occupy the office (party chairman post) until 2026, I will be grateful, if I could cease from becoming the chairman of the party immediately.”Bilal in the letter also apologised over his sudden resignation, while expressing his unalloyed commitment to the ideals of the party.

Bilal who debunked his removal as the party chairman had said the members lack the power to remove him, insisting, that only the APC national working committee of the party, reserve the power to remove him in a crisis or dispute.However, it was gathered that, Bilal’s sudden resignation may have resulted from pressure mounted on him by some influential members of the party, who pledged to offer him a soft landing in return, instead of prosecution since the charges against him bothered on fraud
