The Sokoto state chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC, has called on the Northwest vice chairman, Mr Inuwa Abdulkadir, who was suspended from the party recently, to resign from all Federal government appointments.
A statement signed by the party chairman, Alhaji Sadiq Achida and made available to newsmen in Sokoto Sunday emphasised that “Abdulkadir should follow the path of honour and resign from all such positions.”
He also commended the national secretariat of the party for adopting the resolutions of the party at ward and state levels by suspending Abdulkadir from the party.
“The effort will surely assist in ensuring that we uphold the spirit of fair play and justice among party members.
”This action will further enhance cohesion and unity at all levels of party hierarchy.
”The development is also significant, because it will further strengthen rules and justice, and that one should only reap where he sows,” the statement read.
He said the expulsion of Abdulkadir was a huge relief to APC loyalists in Sokoto state.
Recall that Abdulkadir was expelled from the party for alleged anti party activities, sabotage and disloyalty.
According to Achida, the former officer failed to live up to the expectations of his exalted office and therefore deserved the action.
”The action of our national headquarters has also added another feather of honor to the party, for having a listening leadership that carries its various state chapters along in all its affairs.
”We want to take this opportunity to call on Abdulkadir to take this development in good faith and regard it as reward for his actions or inactions.
“We further request that he follow the path of honor by resigning from all federal appointments which he got by virtue of his election into the NWC of the party.
” We are convinced that his continued stay in offices such NAFDAC Governing Board and others will be another chance for him to further sabotage activities and programs of the Federal Government,” he said.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that Abdulkadir was suspended by the executives of Magajin Gari ‘A’ Ward, followed by Sokoto North local government and the State, a decision he challenged at the court.
