On Sunday, the All Progressive Congress (APC), Sokoto State Chapter, called on the party’s suspended National Vice chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir, to resign from all federal government roles that he presently holds.
A declaration signed and made accessible to reporters in Sokoto by the state chairman of the party, Sadiq Achida, said Mr Abdulkadir should follow the route of honor and resign from all these positions.
Mr. Achida praised the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) for adopting ward, state and federal party resolutions to suspend Mr. 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,” Mr Achida said.
He said the suspension of Mr Abdulkadir was a huge relief to APC loyalists in Sokoto state.
For supposed anti-party operations, sabotage and disloyalty, Mr Abdulkadir was suspended from the APC.
Mr Achida clarified that he did not live up to his exalted office’s expectations and thus deserved the action.
”The action of our national headquarters has also added another feather of honour 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 honour 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 programmes of the federal government,” he said.
Mr Abdulkadir now has plenty of time, he says, to attend the many offices that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has provided him.
The Nigeria News Agency (NAN) recalled that a vote of no confidence in Mr Abdulkadir had been passed by APC in Sokoto State.
The resolution began with Magajin Gari ‘ A ‘ Ward’s APC executives in Sokoto, followed by Sokoto North Local Government, State Party leadership, and state and federal legislatures party officials. (NAN)
