The controversial chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Ibrahim Bilal, has finally resigned from office just weeks after his alleged impeachment by some members of the party’s state work committee in Adamawa state.

However, although Bilal was reinstated by the court, a September 13, 2022 letter from the office of the National Vice Chairman, North East, for the APC, Salihu Mustapha, conveyed the controversial chairman’s resignation. The summary statement signed by Salihu also said Samaila Tadawus, Bilal’s deputy, will take up the position of the party’s acting chairman pending ratification by the APC National Working Committee.

Bilal has yet to break his silence regarding his alleged resignation and has not answered any phone calls or text messages sent to his phone at the time of filing this report. However, the publicity secretary of the APC’s state department, Mohammed Abdullahi, confirmed Bilal’s resignation to the journalists in Yola on Friday. He said the news about the alleged resignation of the party chairman was true.

A letter of resignation, allegedly written by Bilal, on Sept. 13, and addressed to the National President of the APC, through the North-East Zonal Vice-President of the APC, said: “While the APC Constitution allows me to hold office ( party chairmanship) until 2026, I will be grateful, if I can immediately cease to be chairman of the party.”
Bilal also apologized in the letter for his sudden resignation, while expressing his unalloyed commitment to the ideals of the party.

The PUNCH reports that some injured members of the party’s exco passed a no-confidence motion against the chairman two weeks ago for alleged gross misconduct and immediately replaced him with his deputy Samaila Tadawus.

Bilal, who denied his removal as party chairman, had said members do not have the power to remove him, insisting that only the party’s APC National Working Committee retain the power to remove him in a crisis or dispute. .

However, it was believed that Bilal’s sudden resignation may have been the result of pressure placed on him by some influential members of the party, who promised to offer him a soft landing in return, rather than prosecution, as the charges against him involve had on fraud.
