APC ward suspends SGF for failure to win polling unit
The All Progressives Congress in Adamawa State has suspended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, for losing his polling unit to the Peoples Democratic Party during the presidential and governorship polls.
The party disclosed that the SGF did not contribute to the victory of its presidential and governorship candidates.
Announcing the suspension at a press conference in Yola, the Chairman of Gwadabawa Ward said Mustapha was not committed to APC victory at the presidential election.
He stated that the indefinite suspension followed complaints from his ward, adding that no individual could be above the party that gave them the platform.
But in a sudden twist,the party’s state working committee under the leadership of the acting chairman, Chief Samaila Tadawus, declared Mustapha’s suspension as unconstitutional null and void and of no effect.
The Adamawa State APC SWC also announced the directive of the local government executive committee of Yola North to constitute a disciplimary committee to immediately investigate and recommend appropriate action.
The secretary of the party, Dr. Raymond Chidama, who addressed journalist at the party secretariat, on behalf of the SWC, frowned on the alleged compromise of party members, who, he said, were being sponsored by opposition elements.
Chidama, who described the SGF’s support and contributions to the APC in the state as second to none, condemned the executive of Gwadabawa ward, Yola North, over “the malicious attack on the SGF at this critical time.”
He said, “We hereby state clearly that such suspension is unconstitutional, null and void and is of no effect. Because the state working committee has warned the ward executives in the past to desist from this acts of targeting elders of the arty and disregarding constitutional provisions, appropriate sanctions will be applied after thorough investigations.”
