The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Nassarawa Eggon Local Council of Nasarawa State has voided the suspension of some party ward executives and local council officials in the area.

The Chairman, Matthew Duniya, told newsmen, yesterday, in Nassarawa Eggon that withdrawing the suspension was to unite members and ensure the victory of the party in the February and March general elections.

The social media and some quarters had speculated that the Deputy Chairman of APC in the local council, Mr. Malle Moses, from Ubbe ward, was suspended along with three other officials.

Duniya said he has not received any formal complaint regarding anti-party activities by those accused; hence, his decision to void the suspension.

“I wish to draw the attention of the general public to the rumour making the rounds in the media on the petition by some unscrupulous group of individuals trying to tarnish the image of the APC, to the effect of suspending some ward and local council executives.

“I stress equivocally that as Chairman of APC in Nassarawa Eggon, I have not received any formal complain to that effect. As such, all pronouncements emanating from wards and local council stand null and void,” he said.

The chairman, therefore, urged supporters of the party and the general public to disregard the purported suspension and remain resolute towards ensuring the party’s victory in the polls.

He expressed delight with the development strides of Governor Abdullahi Sule and other members of the party holding key positions in government, especially at the grassroots.

Duniya also called for unity among stakeholders and members of the party in the area to ensure success of all candidates of the party in the general elections.

Noting unity as key to the success of the party, the chairman emphasised the need for all members of the party to bury their differences and work together in the interest of peace and progress of APC at all times.
