The party’s spokesman stressed that the chairman’s continued stay in office would be unfair and counterproductive to the hearing of a disciplinary committee put in place by the State Working Committee.

Haruna revealed that the deputy chairman, Mr. Samuel Idoko, would take over as chairman in acting capacity to keep the party running.
