APC voids Boss Mustapha’s suspension, says it’s unconstitutional
The suspension of Mr. Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), by his Godabawa ward on Wednesday has been overturned by the Adamawa chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
This was made known by Dr. Raymond Chidama, the state’s APC secretary, to reporters on Thursday in Yola.
“It is a known fact and worth mentioning that the contribution of Boss Mustapha toward sustaining and supporting the party is second to none and cannot be overemphasised.
“Therefore, any group hiding under the auspices of the party which is sponsored by the opposition to come out with malicious allegations at this critical time is highly condemnable.
“We hereby state such suspension is unconstitutional, null and void and is of no effect,” he said.
