His dismissal followed an emergency meeting of the party’s state working committee held in Jalingo, the state capital.

It was resolved that Adamu’s comments in favour of APC had caused PDP great embarrassment.

According to the party, Adamu’s acceptance of last Saturday’s verdict which nullified the election of Governor Darius Ishaku was a conspiracy against the interest of the party.

The tribunal had at the weekend sacked the state governor, Ishaku and announced Alhassan of the as win​n​er of the April 2015 governorship election.

The development triggered mixed reactions. While Mama Taraba’s team were jubilating, the PDP declared that the outcome of the tribunal shows interference of the executive with the judiciary.

Ishaku said he will appeal the decision, adding that it is still possible that the Court of Appeal would reverse the judgment and give his victory back to him.

Meanwhile, the national leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu described the tribunal​’s judgment as a victory for all women.
