New party spokesman, Mallam Issa-Onilu, in a statement declared that the zonal chapter does not possess the powers to suspend Mr. Salihu who is the National Vice Chairman for the zone.

“Our attention has been drawn to the purported suspension of the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Vice Chairman, North-East, Comrade Mustapha Salihu by the ‘North East Zonal Office.”

“We state categorically that the purported suspension is a nullity as the ‘North East Zonal Office’ does not have such powers to suspend a National Officer. According to the party’s constitution, such powers reside with the National Executive Committee NEC.”

“Whatever issues there might be, the party structure and constitution provide ample avenues for redress and dispute resolution.”

“If the ‘North East Zonal Office’ is unable to achieve a resolution, the National Working Committee NWC can and will wade in the matter to achieve amicable settlement,” the national leadership stated.

The zonal executive had last week announced the suspension of Mr. Salihu.

The resolution was signed by the Zonal Secretary, Abubakar Sadiq Anita, Youth leader Kasimu Bello Maigari, Ex- officio Mamman Isah, Women leader Amina Manga and Organizing Secretary Shaibu Abdul Rahman Adam.

They said his offence bordered on his failure to summon meetings as and when due, contrary to Article 25(D)(1). They also alleged fraudulent handling of official documents and disharmony among members, contrary to Article 21A of the party.

Salihu had in the days leading to the primaries of the party vehemently opposed the decision of the national leadership to impose direct primaries on their state chapters.
