APC expels North West National Vice chair
By Idowu Isamotu, Abuja
The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Thursday said it has upheld disciplinary action against North West National Vice Chairman of the party, Inuwa Abdulkadir over alleged anti-party activities.
The party in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu disclosed that the decision was reached at a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC) held at the Party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
Issa-Onilu explained that NWC took the decision after Abdulkadir failed to utilise the opportunity given to him to defend himself before the disciplinary committee set up to look into the various petitions received against certain members of the party which he was included.
“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 statement partly read.
The APC spokesperson recalled that the party organs in Sokoto State had earlier expelled Inuwa Abdulkadir and passed on their recommendation to the NWC for ratification.
He added, “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.”
