The All Progressives Congress has suspended a former commissioner, Abdulkadir Mai, former Council Chairman Ibrahim Kana, former member of House of Assembly Service Commission, Yawale Boltungo and many other from the Shelleng Local Government Area of Adamawa State.
The APC chapter in Shelleng LGA noted that they were suspended due to anti-party activities.
The chairman of APC in the local government, Yawale Tela, while speaking with newsmen stated that the affected members were working against the interest of the party.
He said the suspension became inevitable owing to the members’ “deliberate insubordination and wilful sabotage.”
He stated that APC must instil discipline, and further stated the suspended members had two weeks to respond satisfactorily to the allegations against them or they would be expelled from the party.
He did not specify exactly what the affected members did, but it could be connected to the local council election scheduled for upper Saturday, December 7 in the 21 LGAs of the state, including Shelleng.
It is an election in which six parties, including the APC and ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, are presenting candidates, and this development could considerably weaken the APC in Shelleng in an election of which PDP’s incumbency factor is expected to play a huge role.
