Ajiya explained that the suspension was in line with the party’s constitution as enshrined in article 21d.

The letter reads in part “this letter is an expression of our ‘vote of no confidence’ in Mr Mustapha Salihu based on the powers vested on us in article 21d: vi, he is hereby suspended with immediate effect for his inability to run the party affairs judiciously, prudently, democratically and accountably.”

The secretary said the charges against Salihu includes his failure to call meetings as at when due contrary to article 25d: 1, and for allegedly causing disunity among members of the party in the zone.

Ajiya announced that a 3-man committee has been inaugurated to look into allegations levelled against the zonal chairman. Members of the investigative committee are Alkali Kolo, Sani Haruna and Abdulkadir Abdulkadir.

But in a swift reaction on telephone, the northeast APC zonal chairman, dismissed the purported suspension, saying, “they lack constitutional authority to suspend me”.

“A member of the National Working Committee (NWC), can only be suspended by the NWC and not the zonal organ”, Salihu posited.

Ahmed Lawan, organising secretary in Adamawa state, also dismissed the action as a “huge joke”, insisting, “By article 12 of the party only the NWC has the jurisdiction to sanction an NWC member”.

He explained that only 1/3 of the zonal executive committee; comprising about 150 members could suspend any official in the zone in line with article 12.6 of the party.

On allegation that he substituted names of some aspirants that won the just concluded primaries in the zone, Salihu dismissed the allegation, saying, “all decisions concerning the party’s Candidates were collectively taken by the NWC in Abuja”.
