A member of Bauchi State House of Assembly representing Lere/Bula constituency, Alhaji Aminu Tukur, Lere Ward APC and local Government Chairman, Mr. Ishaku Simon and Alhaji Korau Bununu have dismissed the alleged suspension of Senator Ali Wakili from the party.
Speaking separately at a peaceful rally in Bununu, headquarters of Tafawa Balewa LGA Tuesday, they declared that the people behind the supposed suspension have no right to suspend Senator Ali Wakili from APC in Bauchi State.
They therefore disassociated themselves from the allegation leveled against that Senator Wakili and his alleged suspension from the party.
On his part, the Lere Ward APC Chairman said that Wakili remain a bonafide member of the party.
"As you can see, the local government party chairman is here, the entire executive from ward level to local government level are here including myself the ward chairmen APC Lere North and we are not aware of his suspension and we are not party to it, so nobody can suspend our son from the party without our consent," he said.
Simon said that he is the ward Chairman and have no knowledge of the suspension and that such letter emanated without their consent and is baseless.
He further explained that those who suspended Senator Wakili are the enemies of APC and the people of the Tafawa Balewa but God has exposed their inferior motive about the land.
In his response, Chairman APC Tafawa Balewa Local Government, Alhaji Korau Bununu accused Alhaji Mijinya Hardo of creating disunity among party members in Tafawa Balewa Local Government.
Recall that the suspension letter dated January 8th, 2017 addressed to the former Local Government party chairman, Mijinyawa Hardo and signed by Markus Silas stated that they have decided to suspend the Senator from the party based on some allegations of misconduct.
