APC suspends SGF Boss Mustapha 

Must read

The Adamawa State All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha. The suspension was because he for lost his polling unit at the presidential and governorship election.

Announcing the suspension at a press conference in Yola, chairman of Gwadabawa Ward disclosed that the SGF did not contribute to the victory of its presidential and governorship candidates.

The party said Mustapha was not committed to APC’s victory at the presidential election, stating that the indefinite suspension followed complaints from his ward.

A PUNCH report claims the Ward chairman stated that no individual could be above the party that gave them the platform.

But in a swift reaction, the State Working Committee of the party under the leadership of the acting Chairman, Samaila Tadawus, declared the announcement as “unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect.”

The Adamawa State APC SWC also directed the local government executive committee of Yola North to constitute a disciplinary committee to immediately investigate and recommend appropriate action.

Speaking to newsmen, Secretary of the party, Dr. Raymond Chidama, condemned the penchant of party members who were being sponsored by “opposition elements within the party with malicious intent to attack elders of the party through actions that flagrantly disregard the party’s constitution.”

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 party and disregarding constitutional provisions, appropriate sanctions will be applied after thorough investigations.”
