The Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that Sen. Kabiru Marafa remained suspended, insisting that the party had suspended him since 2019.
The state chapter chairman, Lawal Liman stated this while reacting to the recent comments credited to Mr Marafa who accused the National Caretaker Committee of the party of not doing enough to address the crisis in the state.
Mr Liman said that, “as far as we concern the APC in Zamfara, Senator Marafa remains suspended because, since 2019 we suspended him in accordance with the party’s constitution and our decision have been forward to the APC National Headquarters, Abuja”.
“We are calling on the National caretaker committee of the party to ratify his suspension.
“Therefore, members of the public should not regard him as a member of the APC.
“We don’t consider Marafa as our member because he is used by oppostion People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to distract peace and stability in the party.
“Even by disobeying the party’s National Executive Council NEC should be enough reason to know that Marafa is not wishing the APC well,” Mr Liman said.
He described the recent comments by Senator Marafa accusing the national leadership of the party as uncalled for
“We are calling on the National caretaker committee to take appropriate action against him, therefore he should be treated as opposition.
“We condemned the statement, we distance our self from any call against National leadership of the party,” Mr Liman explained.
He said that the Zamfara State APC is behind the National Leadership of the party, “we commend the Maimala Buni’s committee for repositioning the party”.
