The Adamawa State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, indefinitely.
An official of the party in Gwadabawa Ward in the state, Muazu Kabiri, who made the announcement at a press conference in Yola, said Mustapha did not commit to seeing the ruling party win the presidential election.
He was also blamed for not winning his polling unit for the party.
Kabiri said the indefinite suspension followed complaints from his ward, adding that no individual could be above the party that gave them the platform.
A letter sent to the State Party Chairman through the Local Government Party Chairman for APC Yola North Local Government from the Ward Party Chairman, APC Gwadabawa Ward, Jimeta, is titled ‘The Suspension Of Mr. Boss Gida Mustapha (SGF) From All Party Activities.’
It reads, “With regard to the above subject matter, we wish to bring to your notice that the entire party executives of APC Gwadabawa Ward, Jimeta have unanimously reached a consensus of suspending the aforementioned person from partaking in all the party activities.”
“His inability to assist the party in any means at the ward level when his attention was needed dearly as a ward member who casts his vote at unit 022,” the party gave as one of the reasons.
Meanwhile, Mustapha is not the only prominent APC member who lost his polling unit.
Abdullahi Adamu, the party’s national chairman, as well as Simon Lalong, Plateau State governor, also lost their own polling unit during the presidential elections.
