Adamawa State Chief of Staff exchanged blows with an All Progressives Congress (APC) official of Yola North Local Area leading to his suspension.
The Chief of Staff to Adamawa State Governor, Alhaji Abdulrahaman Abba Jimeta exchange blows with an All Progressives Congress (APC) official of Yola North Local Area over the weekend.
The fight made Governor Muhammadu Jibrilla [above] to personally intervene between the duo and reproved them, saying that the two of them have disappointed him considering their status in the society.
The row ensued during a meeting of party chairmen from the 21 local government areas held at the residence of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar with the governor and some party chieftains in attendance.
Eye witnesses told our correspondent that trouble started when the Chief of Staff insisted that he did not recognise Baba-Ahmad as the Yola North party chairman, so he had to leave the meeting.
The meeting continued after party elders appealed to the two personalities to bury their differences but no sooner than the meeting was concluded that the two men resumed verbal assault on each other.
At that point, the Chief of Staff removed his gown and the two men threw punches at each other until the governor held Baba-Ahmad while a party chieftain, Lawalu Gire took hold of the Chief of Staff to end the fight.
Soon after the face off, the APC chairman announced the suspension of the Chief of Staff from the Yola North chapter of the party for indiscipline.
Baba-Ahmad confirmed the development to journalists and hope for amiably way of resolving the issue as the elders statesmen have sort for peace in the part but attempt to speak to Abba was not successful.
In the same vein, the Organising secretary of APC in Adamawa state, Alhaji Ahmad Lawal in a press conference with journalist in Yola distanced the party from any link with Baba Ahmad that is not even a Party Member of APC talk less of holding any LGA leadership of the Party.
“Who is Baba Ahmad in the first place that has the power to suspend anybody in the party he is not a member?
“For your information Baba Ahmad is never our member and we don’t even know him as a party member in the state”. Lawal said
“Abdulrahaman Abba Jimeta is never suspended and he cannot, is still a party stalwart of repute in this state,” he added.
