Anti-party activities: APC suspends Gbajabiamila’s campaign DG

By Umar Salam.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin, member representing Babeji/Kiru Federal Constituency over alleged anti-party activities.

Hon. Jibrin, who was the campaign Director General of the House of Representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila during the National Assembly polls was reportedly found guilty of anti-party activities by the Bebeji Local Government chapter of the APC in Kano State and suspended indefinitely.

According to a statement signed by the Chairman of the party in Bebeji Local Government, Alhaji Sulaiman Sabo Gwarmai, Jibrin was suspended on the recommendation of a seven-man committee which was set up after he was petitioned by a party executive.

A part of the statement reads: “upon a petition received by the APC executive committee of Bebeji Local Government, a seven man committee was inaugurated to investigate all the issues raised by the petitioner.

“After a thorough investigation, the Committee submitted its report and recommendations to the Local Government executive which subsequently met and adopted as follows:

“That having confirmed various anti-party activities by Hon. Abdulmuminu Jibrin Kofa which was found contrary to some provisions of the party’s constitution, ranging from article 21, paragraph A (ii) (V) and (Vii) the executive committee adopted the report and herby suspended Hon. Kofa with immediate effect for 12 months.

“That the executive committee also adopted the committee’s recommendation urging the state Executive committee to recommend to the national executive the immediate expulsion of Hon. Abdulmuminu Jibrin Kofa from the party for various offenses.”

Hon. Jibrin was recently excluded from the list of chairmen and deputy chairmen of the House of Representatives’ Standing Committees, which raised questions about his relationship with the Speaker.
