The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC)) has insisted on the disciplinary actions of the Party’s National Vice Chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir over anti-party activities.
The Party’s National Vice Chairman was expelled by the party organs in Sokoto State in November 2018 for the same reasons.
A member of the party from his Magajin Gari ‘Á’ ward, Naibi Abubakar, wrote a complaint letter to the ward chairman of the party, accusing Abdulkadir of “continuous absence from party activities and meetings.”
According to a statement by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Lanre Issa-Onilu, the decision to uphold the actions of the Sokoto APC organs was taken at a meeting of the NWC held at the Party’s National Secretariat on Thursday.
He added that Abdulkadir failed to defend himself when the opportunity availed itself before the disciplinary committee.
“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has upheld the disciplinary actions of Magajin Gari “A” Ward, Sokoto North Local Government, and the Party’s Sokoto State Executive Committee on the Party’s National Vice Chairman (North West), Inuwa Abdulkadir over anti-party activities.
“Abdulkadir failed to utilise the opportunity to defend himself before the disciplinary committee set up by the NWC to look into the various petitions received against certain members of our party.
“Following the suspension of Abdulkadir, the NWC will subsequently forward the decision of the Sokoto State organs to the Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) for further actions,” the statement added.
