The acting Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adamawa State chapter, Chief Samaila Tadawus, has described the resignation of the immediate former chairman of the party, Alhaji Ibrahim Bilal, as a reasonable action taken for the good of the party.

 Addressing journalists for the first time at the party secretariat on Wednesday, Tadawus said it was only natural that the leadership of the party in the state should fall on him as Bilal’s deputy.

The PUNCH had reported the resignation of the embattled Adamawa State chairman of the party from office, few weeks after his purported impeachment by some members of the state working committee.

Bilal, who initially dismissed his removal obtained a court order restraining his deputy from parading as the acting chairman.

But a week after, he tendered his resignation addressed to the national chairman of the party in circumstances that suggested he may have bowed to pressure.

But Tadawus explained that the party under the former chairman had been dogged by a leadership crisis, adding that Bilal reasoned that his resignation was the honourable thing to do under the circumstances.

He also dismissed as untrue the portrayal in a section of the media that the controversy surrounding Bilal’s exit was connected with the outcome of the APC governorship primaries in the state.
