The Katsina State chapter of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has informed that it is making moves to sanction some of its Abuja-based members alleged to be undermining the administration of Governor Aminu Masari.
The state chairman of the party, Shitu Shitu, on Tuesday said that the party was awaiting the report of its disciplinary committee on alleged anti-party activities of some of its Abuja-based members before making any names public.
Shitu in a statement issued in Katsina also added that the APC is a party that believes in the rule of law and would follow due process in all its activities, especially in dealing with erring party members.
He said no one is above the party but laid down rules must be obeyed and followed in carrying out its actions, adding that “anyone found wanting will surely be sanctioned accordingly.”
Shitu also added that people like Hadiza Bala Usman, Ahmed Dangiwa, Sabi’u Tunde, Mamman Daura, Sani Zangon Daura and Musa Haro cannot be seen to be involved in such anti-party acts because some of them have contributed more than enough to the progress of the party at both national and state levels, adding that “some among these mentioned are elder statesmen are we’ll respected.”
Recall that Governor Masari had alleged three days ago that some Abuja-based Katsina APC members were undermining his administration.
According to Masari, the Abuja based members are using federal government resources to undermine the party and his administration in the state.
Masari who was speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting attended by all the 34 local government chairmen and executives of the party in the state on Sunday, said that the APC as a party needed total overhaul.
