APC Suspends Deputy Chairman

The Secretary of the All Progressives Congress , North East Zone , Abubakar Ajiya, on Saturday announced the suspension of Mustapha Salihu, the Zonal Chairman of the zone .
Ajiya, in a letter addressed to Salihu through the National Chairman of the APC , Comrade Adams Oshiomhole , entitled ; ‘Re: Letter of Vote of No
Confidence’ which was made available to the News
Agency of Nigeria in Abuja , said the suspension was in line with the party ’s article 21 D.

The letter read : “ Having failed to fulfill or appear
before this Honourable body , the North East Zonal
Office called upon at Jose Martins Crescent, Asokoro , Abuja dated 11 /10 /2018.

This letter is an expression of our `Vote of No
Confidence’ in Mr Mustapha Salihu based on the
power vested on us in article 21 D: vi, he is hereby
suspended with immediate effect for his inability
to run the party affairs judiciously , prudently and
democratically .’’

The secretary revealed that the charges against
Salihu included his failure to call meeting as and
when due contrary to Article 25 D: 1 , and for
allegedly causing disunity among members of the
party in the zone.

Ajiya further announced that a three -Man committee had been inaugurated to look into allegations leveled against the deputy chairman.
According to him , members of the investigative committee are Alkali Kolo , Sani Haruna and Abdulkadir Abdulkadir.

But when contacted on telephone , the APC deputy
chairman, dismissed the allegations against him ,
saying those who took the decision to suspend him had no constitutional rights to do so.

He explained that only 1/3 of the Zonal Executive
Committee , North East, comprising of about 150
members could suspend any official in the zone in
line with Article 12 .6 of the party .

Ajiya, who described his suspension as a joke ,
alleged that the signature of the Women Leader,
Amina Manga, on the purported suspension letter
was forged.

“ The women leader spoke to me today , She said
that she was not part of the Abuja meeting where
they took their decision to suspend me,’’ he said.
