Tambuwal condemns the politics of division
All stakeholders in the Progressive Congress (APC) criticized the decision to expel the head of the party’s interim national committee, Prince Mustapha Audu.
In a statement, APC Rebirth Group, headed by Mr. Aliyu Audu, argued that the decision of the interim committee headed by Governor Mai Mala Buni is contrary to the party’s constitution.
He argued that the action amounted to punishing “the alleged illegality with another illegality”, claiming that Prince Audu’s expressing a contrary opinion or engaging in activities considered contrary to the current rulers does not justify the denial of his rights as a full citizen. member of the APC.
The group accused the Buni-led committee of being behind Audu’s eviction through his neighborhood in Ogbonicha, Kogi state.
It is also frowned upon by the State Services Department’s (DSS) decision to grill Audu over his faction’s activities.
The group declared: “For the leadership of the APC to take this position against a group with which it has interposed on several occasions, as much as to disavow its leader, Prince Mustapha Audu, who has recently been a candidate for the post. governor on the party platform, one can only imagine how seriously these party superintendents take their responsibility.
“When did Prince Audu stop being a member of the APC? Could it be before he pours 22.5million naira into party coffers to challenge the APC governor’s primaries in Kogi state, or after deciding to speak out against the continuation? according to the interim and planning committee of the extraordinary convention? (CECPC) or their refusal to hold the national convention of the party, especially within the time limit allotted to it?
He added: “We believe that even if the party would impose disciplinary measures against Prince Audu, the constitution must be followed to the letter, adhering to the rules and procedures established for the discipline of party members, especially by giving them the right chance to defend themselves, and not the arbitrary and unconstitutional action of the CECPC and the president of the parish acting on their behalf.
Meanwhile, the Chairman of the Forum of Governors of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Sokoto State, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, called on public office holders to avoid policies of division and destruction.
Tambuwal, in a statement by his media assistant, Mohammed Bello, in Abuja, stressed the need for national cohesion, integration and good governance, against divisive partisan policies.
Insisting on the need to strengthen unity across the country, he stressed that in Sokoto State, the government does not discriminate against other Nigerians.
“Anyone who lives in Sokoto enjoys free education, health care and all other services offered by the state to its citizens,” Tambuwal added.
