On Wednesday, the African Democratic Congress approved the expulsion of Dumebi Kachikwu, the party’s presidential candidate, and Ahmed Rufai, Kachikwu’s running mate.
Senator Patricia Akwashiki, the chairwoman of the board of trustees, North-East, the national vice chairman, as well as other state chairmen and party officials, were also ejected from the party.
At a Special National Convention held at the Ahmadu Bello University Conference Hotel in Zaria, Kaduna State, the expulsion was approved.
In addition, at the convention, new national officers were elected by affirmation to replace those whose terms had expired.
As a result, Ralph Nwosu was reappointed as the ADC’s national chairman, Alhaji Saidu as secretary, and Mrs. Kyauta as the organization’s women’s leader, among other positions.
In his acceptance address, he thanked the delegates for allowing him to head the party for another four years and promised to bring the party to victory in 2023.
When citing Kachikwu’s expulsion, the chairman claimed that the presidential candidate had not released a manifesto since being chosen to run for office.
