A former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje has been expelled from the All Progressives Congress (APC) by the Kashere ward of the party for alleged anti-party activities.
Goje is a serving senator representing Gombe Central and Senator-elect under the platform of the APC.
The party leadership had demanded that the former governor appear before a five-man committee on an investigation into his alleged anti-party activities with a two-week timeframe for the committee to complete its report.
The Kashere ward Chairman, Tanimu Abdullahi, while announcing the resolution of the ward on Tuesday, said the decision followed the various petitions on alleged anti-party activities against Goje, which had not been favourably answered.
According to Abdullahi, the committee served a notice of invitation to Goje to answer the charges against him in the spirit of fair hearing.
