Rep Usman Kumo has vowed to challenge the suspension notice issued to him by his Kumo East Ward ExecutIive Committtee of in Akko Local Governmen his in Gombe, even as he declared his loyalty to All Progressive Congress (APC).
This was just as the Lawmaker heaping the blame on Senator Mohammed Danjuma Goje as the mastermind behind his suspension.
Kumo in a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday said “no amount of mud slinging and deliberate attempt to frustrate my laudable efforts to better my constituents will prevail.
“To this end I am going to court to challenge the suspension because all the allegations are spurious and none can stand the test of time.
“Can you imagine that one of the allegations is that I bought a car for my constituent, how could this be described as anti-party, Kumo wondered.
“I have never done anything against my party’s principles or carried out any act of violence against my party as alleged in the purported suspension notice cooked by Senator Goje and his hatchet men.
“I have concrete information that the mastermind behind this plot to rubbish me is my former Governor, Senator Goje, a man I have remained loyal to in all my political sojourn.
“The committee also alleged that I exhibited acts of indiscipline against who I don’t know because all the allegations were concorted and script written by my former principal.
“Procedurally, the ward failed as it has no right to write straight to the national chairman of the party, it ought to have gone through the local government and zonal office instead it chose to violate all procedures.
“A careful look at the signatures they were all faked in a bid to malign my person. This development is a sad commentary for our democracy which we all fought to bring to bear in Nigeria.
“The court is the final arbiter of justice and there I am heading to clear all the unfounded allegations against my person,” Kumo added.
