Chairman of the Kwara State Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Abubakar Samari, on Thursday, confirmed the suspension of 11 members of the party in the state for anti-party activities.
The suspension letter was signed by the national secretary of the caretaker/extraordinary planning committee of the party, Senator James Akpanudoehehe and addressed to the Kwara state caretaker committee chairman, Abdullahi Samari Abubakar.
In a phone chat with Press in Ilorin on Thursday, Samari, said there was no reason to insinuate that the suspended members of the party are loyalists of the Information Minister, Lai Mohammed.”
He said ” First and foremost, they are all APC members and they committed an offence which attracted sanctions from the party.
” Nobody should be above party rules and regulations, hence, the need to impose sanctions on any erring members of the party for sanity to prevail,” Samari declared.
According to him, “With due respect to the state governor, Abdulrahaman Abdulrazaq, anyone that violates the party’s constitution, will not go unsanctioned.”
