The All Progressives Congress (APC) Kazaure local government chapter has suspended a member representing Kazaure federal constituency, Honourable Muhammad Gudaji Danbaffa for six months.
In the suspension letter signed by the local government chairman of the party, Honourable Hassan Lawan declared that the lawmaker was suspended by his Kazaure Yamma ward and endorsed by the local government chapter of the party for alleged misconduct and disrespect to the state Governor Alhaji Muhammed Badaru Abubakar.
According to the letter, the suspension is with immediate effect while a seven man committee was set-up to investigate the allegations levelled against the house of representatives member and report its recommendation to the party awaited within ten days.
The committee is headed by Mukarrabu Hamza Dandi with Sunusi Lawan Kazaure to serve as the Secretary while other members of the committee include, Mansir Tafida, Yusuf Maitakalma, Yusuf Bala Gizo, Abdullahi Garba and Sani Yahaya Abba respectively.
Gudaji was accused of criticising the state governor Alhaji Muhammed Badaru Abubakar of subverting the people’s choices of aspirants of local government chairmen and councillors with unpopular ones, the action which he said is a betrayal of trust against the APC.
Mr Gudaji made the accusations on his Facebook wall while calling on President Muhammadu Buhari and the leadership of the national headquarters of the APC to intervene against the “underground betrayal” being orchestrated by the state governor to trade-off the party to bidders.
He accused the party for not allowing the rightful candidates to emerge through either primaries or consensus that the APC agrees on at the recently concluded Gwaram Federal constituency by elections which he likened with the Zamfara situation where the opposition People’s Democratic party (PDP) may likely challenged at the court.
In a swift reaction, the Kazaure local government council chairman and the leadership of the APC in the emirate has expressed dismay over the utterances by the suspended member.
In a statement issued by the APC in Kazaure, it described Muhammad Gudaji as a runaway politician who visits his constituency only on personal interest.
