APC suspends its national vice chairman
Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress national vice chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir, has been suspended by the National Working Committee of the party.
APC’s spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, in the announcement statement on Thursday said Abdulkadir was over “over anti-party activities”
“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,” Issa-Onilu said.
“The party organs in Sokoto State have earlier expelled Abdulkadir and passed on their recommendation to the NWC for ratification,” he added.
The spokesman said the decision to suspend Abdulkadir was upheld at a meeting of the NWC held at the Party’s National Secretariat on Thursday.
“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,” Onilu said.
Abdulkadir was accused of working against the APC in the Sokoto State governorship election after the party lost the governorship election to incumbent governor Aminu Tambuwal.
