Zamfara State: Senator Marafa, Deputy Governor, Expelled From APC

Date:

The Zamfara State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has expelled the Senator representing Zamfara Central, Kabiru Marafa, for alleged anti-party activities.

Also expelled is the immediate past Deputy Governor of the State, Ibrahim Wakkala; and member representing Kauran Namoda/Birnin Magaji Federal Constituency in the House of Representatives, Aminu Jaji.

According to a statement on Monday by the party’s State Publicity Secretary, Shehu Isah, on behalf of the State Chairman, the decision to expel the three Politicians was reached at a meeting of the State Executive Committee in Gusau, the State capital, on Sunday.

Isah said: “The provision of Article 21 (A) ii and (D) v of the party’s constitution was activated against the three members for violation of the constitutional provision and engaging in acts inimical to the interest of the party.

“Consequently, a resolution was passed expelling all of them from the All Progressives Congress.”

He highlighted the provision of the section of the party constitution to recommend that any member of the party who files an action in court against the party or any of its officials without first exhausting the avenues for redress stands expelled.

He added that the constitution also said no appeal against such expulsion shall be entertained until the withdrawal of the court case.

“We are therefore by this notice informing the general public that from the date of the said resolution, the aforementioned members cease to be members of the All Progressives Congress and consequently are disentitled from enjoying rights, privileges and benefits from the party,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, the Zamfara State Chapter has communicated the decision to the party’s National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

A letter titled “Notice of expulsion from party” dated June 3, 2019 was submitted to Oshiomhole in Abuja on Monday.
