The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reconstituted a four-member Caretaker committee to fill the vacancies in Gombe State chapter of the party.
The NWC, in a release through its National Publicity Secretary, Bolaji Abdullahi, said the party took the action in the exercise of its powers under Article 13.4 (xvi & xvii) of the APC constitution after the tenure expiration of the Gombe State Caretaker Working Committee (APC).
The newly constituted caretaker committee includes Idi Barde Gubana, State Chairman, Sani Haruna, State Deputy Chairman, Bello Kasimu Maigari, State Secretary and Barr. Bichi Obadia, State Legal Secretary.
The caretaker function will be for an initial renewable period of three (3) months commencing February 17 unless otherwise terminated by the NWC.
The Committee will be inaugurated on Monday, February 20 at the APC National Secretariat.
Last year, the APC national leadership had earlier endorsed the composition of caretaker officers into the vacant offices for Gombe State chapter of the party.
The APC, in a release by its national secretary Mai Mala Buni, accepted the resignation of Karu Ishaya and Sallau Manu Pindiga as State Deputy Chairman and State Secretary respectively.
The party also relieved Barr. Muhammad Magaji Doho and Barr. Dauda Manu as State Chairman and State Legal Adviser respectively.
Following the two decisions which took effect from August 31, 2016, the party's NWC approved the choice of Lawan Shetima, as State Chairman; Capt. Bala Jibrin, State Deputy Chairman; Sule Yakubu, State Secretary and Barr. Joseph William Legal Adviser to oversee the affairs of the party for a three-month renewable period.
The APC NWC took the decision, following the irreconcilable differences in the top hierarchy of the Gombe State chapter of the APC which led to the factionalisation.
Since then, the caretaker officials have been submitting monthly reports and receiving directives from the National Secretariat.
Before the latest decision, the former state caretaker committee chairman, Shettima, appointed by the APC NWC to resolve the crisis, had been appointed as a commissioner in Yobe State.
