- Lawmaker: My expulsion is politically motivated
Ibrahim Shuaibu in Kano
The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bebeji Local Government Area of Kano State has expelled the embattled Abdulmumin Jibrin from the party for anti-party activities.
Addressing journalists in Kano thursday, the party Chairman in the local government, Mr. Sani Kanti Ranka, accused the former Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Appropriation of promoting divisive tendencies.
Ranka further accused the suspended federal legislator of insubordination and disrespect to President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
A resolution by the party read out to journalists explained that its action was sequel to a report of the disciplinary committee which recommended for his expulsion.
Ranka said the party would not tolerate disrespect to leaders and elders of the party in the state by Jibrin.
â€œThe party will not condone indiscipline and disrespect to leaders or duly constituted authority. We hereby inform the world that Jibrin has been expelled from our great party, APC.â€
Ranka who was flanked by other members of his executive, said the expulsion was unanimously agreed by members of the party and stakeholders.
While reacting to the expulsion, Jubrin said he was expelled by some mischievous impersonators in the party.
Jibrin said: â€œThe report, I have gathered, came from a dubious character and known fraudster who is neither the chairman of my party at the local government level nor a part of the party executive at the state level. The party is not even aware of this impersonation making the rounds in the media.â€
