Adamawa APC suspends SGF, Boss Mustapha, over alleged anti-party activity
Suspended for losing his polling unit to PDP
The All Progressives Congress in Adamawa State has suspended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, for losing his polling unit to the Peoples Democratic Party at the presidential and governorship polls. This was announced at a press conference in Yola by the chairman of Gwadabawa Ward.
Accused of not contributing to APC’s victory
The party disclosed that the SGF did not contribute to the victory of its presidential and governorship candidates. The chairman of Gwadabawa Ward stated that the indefinite suspension followed complaints from his ward, adding that no individual could be above the party that gave them the platform.
Suspension declared “unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect”
In a sudden twist to the announcement of the indefinite suspension slammed on the SGF, the State Working Committee of the party under the leadership of the acting Chairman, Chief Samaila Tadawus, declared the announcement as “unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect.” The Adamawa State APC SWC also announced the directive on the local government executive committee of Yola North to constitute a disciplinary committee to immediately investigate and recommend appropriate action.
Malicious intent to attack elders of the party
Secretary of the party, Dr. Raymond Chidama, who addressed journalists at the party secretariat on behalf of the SWC, frowned at the penchant of party members 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 also warned that appropriate sanctions would be applied after thorough investigations.
The suspension of the SGF, Boss Mustapha, has caused controversy in Adamawa State as the SWC of the APC declares the suspension as “unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect.” It remains to be seen what further actions will be taken to resolve the dispute within the party.
