The Zamfara State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that Senator Kabiru Marafa remains suspended, insisting that the party had suspended him since 2019.
The State APC Chairman, Alhaji Lawal Liman, stated this while reacting to the recent comments credited to Senator Marafa on the National Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party.
Liman said that, “As far as we are concerned in the APC in Zamfara, Senator Marafa remains suspended because, since 2019 we suspended him in accordance with the party’s constitution and our decision has been forward to the APC National Headquarters, Abuja”.
“We are calling on the National caretaker committee of the party to ratify his suspension. Therefore, members of the public should not regard him as a member of the APC.
“We don’t consider Marafa as our member because he is used by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to disrupt peace and stability in the party.
“Disobeying the party’s National Executive Council (NEC) is enough reason to know that Marafa is not wishing the APC well”, Liman said.
He described the recent comments by Senator Marafa attacking the national leadership of the party as uncalled for.
“We are calling on the National caretaker committee to take appropriate action against him, therefore he should be treated as opposition.
“We condemn the statement, we distance our self from any call against National leadership of the party”, Liman stated.
He said that the Zamfara State APC is behind the National Leadership of the party, “we commend the Mai Mala Buni’s committee for repositioning the party”.
