APC Bauchi chapter lifts suspension of former governor, Mohammed Abubakar

The All Progressive Congress (APC) Bauchi state chapter has lifted the suspension of Mohammed Abubakar, the immediate past governor of Bauchi state, which was imposed by the party’s leadership in his ward for suspected anti-party conduct.

The suspension of Abubakar, which was claimed to be in line with Article 21.2 () of the APC constitution, was announced by the APC Makama/Sarkin Bakl Ward of the Bauchi Local Government Area in a letter of suspension that was jointly signed by the party’s chairman and secretary, Sa’idu Laminu Baban Karatu and Abdullahi.

But the APC in the state, in a statement signed by Adamu Aliyu Jallah, the state publicity secretary, on Friday, described the suspension as null and void as it did not follow due process. It reversed the suspension in the release, titled “Reversal of Unlawful Suspension of His Excellency, Mohammed.”

The statement reads: “The purported decision as contained in the Letter of suspension dated 14/12/2022 is hereby reversed and set aside by the State Working Committee of APC Bauchi State for want of Fair Hearing and gross violation of disciplinary procedures under Article 21 of the APC constitution, 2022.

“Further take notice that Mohammed Abdullahi Abubakar, SAN, is still an active and valid member of APC and shall continue to partake in all lawful activities of the party at all levels, until further notice.

“Consequently, your cooperation is hereby sought to stop giving any effect to the unlawful decision of the APC Executives of Makama/Sarkin Baki Ward of Bauchi LGA forthwith. Further action shall be taken by the State Working Committee of the APC, Bauchi State, in due course.”
