The All Progressives Congress (APC), Adamawa state chapter has suspended three leading executives of the party for attempting to withdraw the party’s petition against Governor Ahmadu Fintiri.
Eye9ja understands that the suspended APC executives are; Alhaji Aliyu Bakari (Adamawa Central Zonal Vice-Chairman); Alhaji Saidu Naira (State Financial Secretary) and Alhaji Babangida Talase (Party Chairman for Mayo-Belwa Local Government Area).
The suspension of the top executives was made known in a statement by the APC Publicity Secretary, Hon Mohammed Abdullahi.
In the statement, the party noted that the three sabotaged its interest by approaching the governorship election tribunal to withdraw the party’s petition against the election Fintiri, who is of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as governor.
Recall that the Nigeria’s ruling party had filed a petition against Fintiri’s election following the last governorship poll which the APC is questioning at the tribunal.
But the APC said in its statement that the three leaders sabotaged the interest of the party by attempting to withdraw the petition without due consultation.
Eye9ja understands that the party in its statement specified that Saidu Naira and Babangida Talase would spend six months on suspension from the party while Aliyu Bakari’s suspension is still indefinite.
“All the suspended officials are relieved of their respective positions in the exco, and the matter has been referred to the National Secretariat of the party for further necessary action,” the party added.
