A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress has disclosed the party’s position on corruption and anti-party activities within its fold.
While speaking with journalists, the Yobe State Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Chilariye, said in the state capital, Damaturu, that the party would not hesitate to expel any member found to be corrupt or involved in anti-party activities.
Stating that the party was committed to the ideal of internal democracy, Chilariye said party members should refrain from practices that will bring the party into disrepute and lead to their own expulsion.
According to him, the party is bigger than any single individual, no matter how highly placed.
