The All Progressives Congress in Kano, on Saturday, has condemned the removal of the elected APC Chairman in the state, Umar Haruna Doguwa.
The spokesman for the group, Aminu Abdulsalam, in a statement, noted that it considered the removal of the chairman as an unfortunate development.
The group also viewed the action as a “flagrant disregard for the party’s constitution and an abuse of due process which is in total contempt of the party’s laid-down rules and regulations.”
The group expressed regret that neither the National Working Committee nor the National Executive Committee of the party had met over the issue.
It added, “In view of the above development, we feel highly disappointed and totally reject and condemn such kind of disrespect for the constitution of our party and therefore, we consider the purported removal of the duly elected chairman, as unconstitutional and therefore null and void.”
The group further demanded that the national party leadership should reverse the action, which it described as an act of impunity.
The concerned APC members said past experience had taught them that such an action could result in disastrous consequences for the party.
