The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Bebeji Local Government Area of Kano State have expelled the embattled Nigerian lawmaker, Abdulmumuni Jibrin, who was suspended from the House of Representatives months back on account of accusing the leadership of the House of budget fraud.
The former Chairman of the Appropriation committee, Abdulmumin Jibrin who represents Bebeji Federal Constituency in the House was reportedly expelled for taking part in anti-party activities.
The party chairman in the local government, Sani Ranka, while reading the final decision of the party on Thursday disclosed that the party had taken all constitutional steps to make Mr. Jibrin step back from his ‘anti-party activities’, all to no avail.
Making the party’s decision known in Kano while speaking to newsmen, Sani Ranka noted that the party constituted a five-member committee to meet with Mr. Jibrin, but the lawmaker refused to meet the panel.
“Before taking this final decision, we formed a disciplinary five-man committee and they went to him on 11-4-2017, he saw them briefly but without any tangible talks and they went back on 13-4-2017 he then refused to see them.”
The party chairman further added that after the committee reported back to the party executives, an unanimous decision to expel the embattled lawmaker was reached.
The party further accused the suspended lawmaker of factionalizing the party, creating new unconstitutional leadership, going against the government of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje, the state governor, and indiscipline against the national headquarters of the party and the presidency of Muhammadu Buhari.
