African Democratic Congress (ADC) has suspended Alhaji Ibrahim Manzo, a former National Vice Chairman, North-East and 17 state chairmen for anti-party activities and utterances aimed at bringing the ADC to disrepute.

This is contained in a statement jointly signed by the party’s National Chairman, Chief Ralph Nwosu and National Secretary, Alhaji Said Abdullahi on Wednesday in Abuja.

According to the statement, the activities of the suspended officials contravene Article 15 of the party’s constitution.

“The party’s former chairman in Abia was expelled; a replacement for the suspended state chairmen will be announced in due course,” it added.

It said that the party also appointed Dr Mani Ahmed, a presidential aspirant in 2015, as Chairman of the party’s Board of Trustees (BoT).

The statement urged all ADC executives at the ward, local government and state levels to continue structuring the party at the grassroots for campaign take-off.

It encouraged the party candidates at all levels not to be distracted by the activities of a few members, but to remain focused ahead of the 2023 general elections. (NAN)
