The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled Alhaji Inuwa Abdulkadir, the North-West zonal Vice Chairman over anti-party activities.
APC’s publicity secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
Inuwa has been at loggerheads with the party leadership, who had queried him for supporting calls for the resignation of APC’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, among various other allegations.
The statement read: “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.”
”The party organs in Sokoto State have earlier expelled Inuwa Abdulkadir and passed on their recommendation to the NWC for ratification.
“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.
“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.”
