At last, Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna state, has been suspended for 6 months from the party by Alhaji Danladi Wada-led Kaduna State APC Executive, recognized by the national body of party.
The governor was last week queried for anti-peoples, anti-party activities and inhuman policies and given 48 hours to answer the query.
The governor, el-Rufai, was formally suspended, Sunday, from the party after an exhaustive meeting of the exco of the party held in Kaduna.
Earlier in last week, his finance commissioner and acting party secretary were suspended for activities the exco described as “inimical” to the interest of the State chapter of the party.
In the letters of query and suspensions issued, signed and made available to journalists in Kaduna last week, Thursday, Wada stated that suspension takes effect from 12th February, 2018.
The letter stated that Yahaya Baba Pate was suspended for always taking unilateral decisions and conclusions and issuance of directives to the local government, ward and individual members of the party in the name of the decisions of the State Executive Council of the party or State Working committee, “while in the real sense he was carrying out the biddings of Uba Sani, the Political Adviser to Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State.
“His actions were adjudged to have compromised the Party Constitution, thereby disrupting peaceful, lawful and efficient organization of the party in the State. While Suleiman Abdu Kwari, el-Rufai’s Finance Commissioner was suspended for 18 months for undue interference on issues within the scope of State, Local Government and Ward organs of the party, which tend to disrupt the peaceful, lawful and efficient organization of the party with reference to his Sabin Gari Local Government and Bomo ward of the same Sabin Gari LGA.
All efforts to get the reaction of Samuel Aruwan, who is media officer to the suspended governor, failed because of his unrepentant habit of not picking some journalists’ calls. Aruwan had, however, last week reacted that the government under his principal was on the path of disengaging what he called “political traders.”
