The All Progressive Congress, APC, in Bebeji Local Government Area of Kano State, says it has expelled Abdulmumuni Jibrin, the member of the House of Representatives who was suspended for 180 days for accusing the leadership of the House of budget fraud.
Mr. Jibrin represents Bebeji Federal Constituency. The chapter of the party said Mr. Jibrin was expelled for taking part in anti-party activities.
Reading the resolution expelling Mr. Jibrin Thursday, the party chairman in the local government, Sani Ranka, told journalists in Kano the party had taken all constitutional steps to make Mr. Jibrin step back from “anti-party activities”, to no avail.
The party accused the suspended member of factionalizing the party, creating new unconstitutional leadership, going against the government of Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and indiscipline against the national headquarters of the party and the presidency of Muhammadu Buhari.
In his reaction, Hon Abdulmumin Jubril in his press release he declared that “My attention has been drawn to a false claim attributed to some mischievous impersonators that I’ve been expelled from my party, APC at the Local Government branch.
This report, I’ve gathered, came from a dubious character and known fraudster who is neither the Chairman of my party at the local government level nor a part of the party executive at the state level.
The party is not even aware of this impersonation making the rounds in the media.
This is yet another round of character assassinations from career political antagonizers who are perpetually threatened by our advocacy for transparency in public service and political leadership.
Recall that I honoured the invitation of the EFCC in a bid to shed light on the cases of corruption perpetrated by some principal officers of the House of Representatives, despite dissuasions by these saboteurs of my party’s change agenda and stand against corruption.
The initiators of this false claim of my expulsion by my party are hired hacks engaged by some politicians in Abuja in continuation of their futile bids to frustrate my anti-corruption campaigns.
I wish to remind the public, and especially the media, that this report did not originate from my party, the APC. I have a cordial relationship with my party, and we have been working hand in hand to actualize our agenda for a better Nigeria.”
