APC expels Abdulmumini Kofa over anti-party

The Bebeji local government chapter of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kano state has expelled Honorable Abdulmumini Jibril Kofa over alleged anti-party activities.

Addressing a press conference on Thursday in Kano, the Chairman of the party in Bebeji local government, Alhaji Sani Kanti Garka, said Kofa was expelled from the party on four-count charge.

Garka said, “Kofa was accused of creating divisions in the party at local government, forming a parallel APC leadership in Bebeji and 14 wards, sabotaging Ganduje-led government and disloyalty to APC national leadership by sabotaging Buhari-led administration.”

He explained that the expulsion of the lawmaker became necessary following his inability to defend himself before the 5-man committee set up by the party to investigate the allegations.

“The 5-man committee led by Alhaji Musa Namadi has contacted the expelled lawmaker twice on the 11th and 13th of June to hear his own version but he failed to defend himself. He listened to the committee on the 11th June but refused to listen to it on the 13th.

“As a result of that the committee therefore filed its reports and submitted same to the party on the 15th June, 2017 for further actions. After it has gone through the report, the party was left with no option than to expel Kofa because it will not condone such attitude
from any of its members. All party members must abide by its rules and regulations at all levels,” he said.

It would be recalled that Rep Kofa was suspended from attending 360 sittings of the House of Representatives by the leadership of the lower chamber.
