Kaduna South APC Executives on Friday expressed sadness towards the activities of some ‘unscrupulous elements’ within the party that are hell-bent in disrupting and ridiculing the party in Kaduna South LG, and declared them suspended.
Those suspended include Mukhtar Ahmad Monrovia, the chairman Kaduna State Board of Internal Revenue, Auwal Yaro Mai Kyau, Special Adviser on Youths to Governor Nasir el-Rufai and Yakubu Soso, who is unlawfully parading himself as ‘chairman’ of APC, Kaduna South Local Government.
The party at local government level, in a statement issued Friday, averred that it has received various complaints on the activities of these characters, which include but not limited to incitement, unbecoming behaviours, anti-party and impersonation as well as outright disrespect of the Party leadership in the local government.
Signed by Alhaji Bello Inuwa, Chairman, APC Kaduna South LGA and Comrade Ayok Danboyi, Secretary, APC Kaduna South LGA, respectively, the statement said “Sequel to this, the party has severally warned them to desist from such acts because they are contrary to the laws enshrined in the party’s Constitution. As a matter, a Fact-Finding Committee was constituted, in order to establish the veracity of these complaints. The Committee finds that all the allegations are true and genuine. It further warned the trio but refused with impunity.
“For instance, Mukhtar Ahmad Monrovia has been inducing some Ward Executives by opening a new Local Government office, which is different from the main office of the party, so that they can violate the extant rules of the party; and he is also hell-bent and desperate of becoming the party’s flag-bearer for the House of Representative elections in 2019, using unconstitutional channels and incitement.
“On the other hand, Auwal Yaro Mai Kyau has been sponsoring thugs to unleash thuggery. No wonder, he is known as father-of-thugs in Kaduna South Local Government. In addition, Yakubu Soso is unlawfully amassing wealth from aspiring candidates ahead of the 2019 elections by parading himself as ‘Chairman’ of APC in the LG as well as causing tensions, distrust and disunity among party members. No wonder, he’s at loggerheads with his boss, the Honourable Member representing Tudun Wada Constituency in Kaduna State House of Assembly.
“After exhausting all the constitutional avenues to ensure these characters desist from such unconstitutional acts and upon the recommendation of the Disciplinary and Fact-Finding Committee, the party is left with no option than to invoke the relevant sections of the party’s Constitution by suspending Mukhtar Ahmad Monrovia, Auwal Yaro Mai Kyau and Yakubu Soso from the period for 18 months, commencing from today, 16th February, 2018, for your outright disobedience to the Party. By this notice, therefore, the trio are warned to stay away from all the activities of the party, and no member of the party should associate with them throughout the period of this suspension, else appropriate disciplinary action would be taken against any erring member(s).
“We wish to categorically state here that all the decisions taken by the State Acting Chairman of the party, S.I. Danladi Wada, on any erring member, the Local Government Executives support it as it’s in the best interest of our party. We wish to also state here that the State Chapter will always have steadfast support from us,” it stated.
