The All Progressives Congress in Bauchi State has suspended its chairman, Babayo Aliyu Misau, over alleged anti-party activities in the just concluded governoship election held March 18.
His suspension was made public during a chat with journalists by the executives of his ward, Kukadu Gundari in Misau local government area of Bauchi State.
Leadership reported that the conference was led by the ward chairman, Ibrahim Zango Lawan, who claimed that Alhaji Misau cast his vote for another governorship candidate during the governorship and state House of Assembly elections in the state.
They argued that the chairman was indefinitely suspended due to his violation of the party’s constitution and abuse of his office as a chairman in the state chapter.
At the conference, the ward secretary, Aliyu Hassan Adamu, stated that other offenses committed by Alhaji Misau include displaying his ballot papers during the governorship and state House of Assembly elections, where he did not vote for the APC in the governorship ballot paper.
It was learnt that Misau’s suspension is coming barely 24 hours after the executives of the party in Gamawa Ward of Gamawa LG of the state suspended the National Ex-Official of the party, Sirajo Dada, for alleged hoarding of resources meant to be used for the party’s governorship candidates campaign.
In his response, Babayo Aliyu Misau said it’s the chairman of the APC in Bauchi State, has the legitimate right to suspend him, insisting that his suspension was a null campaign against his popularity among the supporters of the party in the state.
“I will not resign. Are they the ones who voted me in? I don’t want a long argument, please! Forget about them,” he said.
