APC Suspends Gov. El-Rufai
A faction of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has suspended the state governor Nasir el-Rufai for six months.
The faction known as Kaduna Restoration Group had issued him a query and suspended three of his aides about three days ago.
According to the faction, El-Rufai is undertaking “anti- party activities and anti-human activities.”
Addressing a press conference in Kaduna on Sunday, the factional chairman of the party, Danladi Wada said the failure of El Rufai to respond to the query issued him necessitated the latest action.
“This briefing is sequel to 48 hours ultimatum/query and warning issued to the state governor to explain and defence himself against the allegations leveled against him which he failed to respond.
“The State Working Committee on Saturday 17, February 2018, convened and resolved to consider and to rectify the findings and recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee and the Fact Finding Committee put before it in accordance with the provision of article 21(B) section 3 of the APC constitution and accordingly, the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai stands suspended for 6 months from the APC, commencing from 17, February, 2018.”
