From Mohammed Ibrahim, Kaduna
All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State yesterday described the Senator Hunkuyi led faction’s purported suspension of Governor Nasir El-Rufai as laughable and should be disregarded.
This was part of the resolutions of the party’s State Executive Committee (SEC) meeting held in the state.
Acting Secretary of the party, Yahaya Baba Pate who briefed newsmen said the suspension of Governor El-Rufai by a faction of the party is illegitimate.
He explained that the ‘so called’ chairman of the faction, Danladi Wada is an imposter who lacks power to suspend any member of the party.
“The authentic chairman of the party is Alhaji Shuaibu Idris. He is the chairman recognized by the national leadership of the party. Just last week, he received an invitation letter from the national secretariat, signed by the National Chairman, Chief Odigie Oyegun, inviting him for National Executive Committee meeting next week.
“The Senator Hunkuyi led group is illegitimate. As far as we are concerned, most of them have been expelled including the so called factional chairman, Danladi Wada. As for Senator Hunkuyi, he is under six months suspension, because we cannot expel him. Only the national leadership can expel him, because he is a political office holder.” he said.
