The African Democratic Congress (ADC) has suspended its presidential candidate, Dumebi Kachikwu from the party.
In a statement issued Saturday and signed by the party’s Deputy National Chairman (Politics) Dr. Bamidele Ajadi, the party accused Kachikwu of false, misguided, and defamatory videos he made and circulated, among other infractions.
Ajadi revealed that the decision was taken after an emergency National Working Committee (NWC) meeting held on Friday, 2nd September 2022.
The party stated categorically that it considered Kachikwu’s action as, “smacking of crass irresponsibility, gross indiscipline, disingenuous scandalization and blackmail and completely unfit of someone who wants to be President of Nigeria.”
“The NWC viewed with great concern the baseless and defamatory video made, published, and circulated by Mr. Dumebi Kachikwu, which was intended to disparage and impugn the integrity and image of a peaceful and transformation-oriented African Democratic Congress and its national officers.”
