APC expels Jibrin for 'sabotaging Governor Ganduje'
The All Progressives Congress in Bebeji local government area of Kano state has expelled the suspended House of Representatives member, Abdulmumini Jibrin from the party over alleged anti party activities.
Jibrin, a member representing Kiru/Bebeji Federal Constituency in Kano state, was suspended by House of Representatives for exposing alleged Budget padding in the green chamber.
The APC Chairman in the local government, Sani Kanti-Ranka announced the expulsion of Jibrin at a news conference in Kano on Thursday.
He said the decision to expel the suspended lawmaker from the party followed series of allegations against him in connection with the attempt to create divisions in the party.
“He is also being accused of trying to change the leadership of the party at the local government and all the 14 wards in Bebeji local government.
“Similarly, he is expelled from the party at the local government because he is sabotaging the the state governor, Abdullahi Ganduje in addition to being disloyal and disrespectful to the National leadership of the party,“ he said.
He said the offences were contrary to the APC constitution hence the decision of the party to set up a committee which sought for his reaction on the allegations.
He said the five-member committee had invited Jibrin to come and defend himself but he declined the invitation.
Kanti-Ranka said following his refusal to appear before the committee, the party had no option than to expell him.
NAN reports that the copy of the expulsion letter which was signed by the Kofa ward Chairman and Secretary of the party, Hudu Musa-Kofa and Jibrin Yunusa-Kofa, was copied to the state governor and APC Chairman in the state, Abdullahi Abbas.
