Adamawa APC Sacks Ward Exco Over Suspension Order On SGF


The State Working Committee of the All Progressive Congress in Adamawa has ordered an indefinite suspension of the ward executives of Gwadabawa ward over their suspension order on the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha.

The State working committee of the Adamawa chapter of the APC, on Saturday, slammed an indefinite suspension on the party executive as well as their sack from holding any party position.

Dr. Raymond Chidama, Secretary of the APC, who addressed journalists at the party, secretariat, said the sanctions, on the errant party officials were the fallout of the recommendations of the resolutions of Yola North Executive Committee tasked by SWC to investigate and recommend appropriate sanctions over the unconstitutional conduct of the Gwadabawa ward EXCO.

The Exco of Gwadabawa ward had 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.

But the state working committee of the APC, in Adamawa under the leadership of Chief Samaila Tadawus, swiftly reversed it and declared Mustapha’s suspension as unconstitutional null and void and of no effect.

Chidama said the indefinite suspension of the ward officials was made with other far-reaching sanctions that includes the removal of all the ward officials from holding their positions with immediate effect.

According to him, the party equally frowned at the actions of some party executive who have made similar adventures recently when they ignorantly announced the suspension of the party’s National Vice Chairman North East, Mustapha Salihu and the party’s gubernatorial candidate Senator Aishatu Ahmed Dahiru (Binani).

He said the ” State working committee Committee therefore viewed the activities of these miscreants as an embarrassment to the National Chairman, Mr. President and the party. The state working Committee therefore approved the removal from office of all exco members of Gwadabawa ward with immediate effect. Indefinite suspension of all Exco members of Gwadabawa ward from the party and constitution of a seven-man caretaker committee as recommended by Yola North Local Government Executive Committee with immediate effect.”

He also directed all the Exco members of Gwadabawa ward to handover all the party properties in their possession to the chairman of Yola North local Government Area immediately.
