REMOVAL AS APC LEADER: BAUCHI SPEAKER ASKS SUPPORTERS TO REMAIN CALM, LAW ABIDING
Following his purported removal as Chairman of the Stakeholders of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Ningi Local Government by the Alhaji Uba Nana led Caretaker Committee, the Speaker of the Bauchi State House of Assembly and Chairman of the Conference of Speakers of State Legislatures of Nigeria Rt. Hon. Abubakar Y Suleiman (Ɗangaladiman Ningi) urged his supporters to remain calm and not to take law into their hands.
The Speaker explained that as a loyal party member, he will never allow violation of the Constitution of the party and divisive actions that will bring misfortune and crisis to the party by some born-to-rule elements.
According to him, since his emergence as the Speaker of the State House of Assembly and the number 3 citizen in the State, he has been occupying the position of the Chairman of Stakeholders. However, just of a sudden the Local Government Party Chairman called and told him that he has received an instruction from the State Party Secretariat that he has been replaced by Hon. Abdullahi Sa’ad Abdulkadir (Baba Iyali) as Chairman of the Ningi Local Government APC Stakeholders.
“I remain the Chairman of Ningi APC Stakeholders, majority of the Critical Stakeholders recognise by the Party Constitution are with me and have already rejected my purported removal.
“The Stakeholders are the ones responsible for appointing their Chairman and I am enjoying the full support of virtually all of the them except very few
“We will conduct the ward congresses and other congresses in conformity with the party’s Constitution and the Guidelines of the congresses.” He said.
Rt. Hon. Abubakar Suleiman also assured the party loyalists in Ningi Local Government that they will not allow anybody to handover the party to an individual whose only asset and connection to Ningi is the political position he fortuitously occupied.
