Usman Bello Kumo, a House of Representatives member from Gombe state, has been expelled by the state chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) over alleged anti-party activities.
The state party leaders in a letter to the national chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole said the expulsion followed a petition against the federal lawmaker.
The letter read: “The anti-party activities of Hon Usman Bello Kumo against the election of Alhaji Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya at the 2019 general elections as governor of Gombe state is an infamous conduct, cannot be tolerated and it is contrary to the provisions of the party’s constitution as enshrined in article 21, paragraph A(1) and (2) 2014 as amended.
“That the car donation by Hon Usman Bello Kumo to an interloper, one Garba Inuwa Gona, who is not even a constituent of Akko federal constituency, simply because he insulted our party leader, Senator Muhammad Danjuma Goje on Progress Radio, Gombe clearly demonstrated his indiscipline, immorality and total disrespect to the leadership of the party and would certainly have an adverse effect on the progress, peace and stability of our great party.
“That Hon Usman Bello Kumo is hereby dismissed/ expelled from the All Progressives Congress with immediate effect from today 30th day of March 2020.”
