The All Progressives Congress Gombe State chapter has suspended Sen. Amos Bulus, over alleged anti-party activities.
This is contained in a statement signed by the state publicity secretary, Moses Kyari on Saturday.
According to Mr. Kyari, the party had also suspended Yunusa Abubakar, who represents Yamaltu-Deba Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, for alleged anti-party activities.
He said the lawmakers were suspended by their ward executives after they were allegedly found to have been engaged in anti-party activities during the 2023 general election in the state.
Meanwhile, he said the senator was suspended by the ward executives of Bambam in the Balanga Local Government Area of the state.
“He was suspended for anti-party activities at the just concluded general elections.
“This came about as a result of a petition written from his ward which caused a five-man committee from the ward to investigate and get to the root of the matter about two weeks ago,” he said.
The chairman stated that a committee was set up to investigate the matter, adding that the committee invited the senator, but he could not defend himself from the allegations; hence the committee recommended his suspension from the party.
He explained further that his suspension was based on the recommendations of a disciplinary committee that found him guilty of anti-party activities.
He revealed that the suspension of the lawmakers had been authorized by the state APC executive council.
