State Working Committee (SWC) of the All Progressives Congress in Adamawa State has described the purported suspension of Comrade Mustapha Salihu, the North East National Vice Chairman as illicit and illegal.
The State Secretary of the Party, Dr. Raymond Chidama in a Press Release said faceless and unknown persons are being used by the enemies of the party to disrupt the glaring chances of winning the forthcoming elections.
While condemning the suspension of Rumde ward Party Chairman, Yola Local Government area by the party crashers, Raymond declared that their interloping attitude is unconstitutional, it’s null and void and it is of no effect.
“We advise faithful members of our party to disregard such publication,” Raymond said
APC National leader replies Binani
Lending their voice and loyalty to Comrade Mustapha Salihu over the suspension , the Chairman of Rumbe ward, Abdulkadir Abdullahi in a swift reaction to the purported suspension said the action can never be and it remains unrealistic.
He said that the Ward is peaceful and their relationship with Mustapha is cordial with unbroken party affiliation and as such no one will suspend Salihu who has been a good leader, a true party Man.
Abdulkadir in a press conference in Yola, at the ward party’s secretariat, summoned all other executives.members and signed a register signifying a vote of confidence reposed on Salihu.
“In my capacity as the ward chairman of Rumde ward, I stand to say this is not true and can’t be possible because nothing as such ever happened.
“I’m therefore calling on all APC Supporters and loyalists to remain calm and peaceful to face the election coming ahead. He said
The excos members collectively endorsed Salihu and called on the general public to disregard the suspension as a rumor that will never see the light of day.
Also, our correspondent was reliably told by someone who has been an APC die-hard in a condition of anonymity that the suspension was mischievously masterminded by an ADC House of Assembly candidate for Yola North, Mallam Sanusi Bakari.
He said Sanusi is a Prime suspect that must face the full wrath of the law.
