The party said the reports are absolutely untrue.
The Congress for Progressive Change, CPC has denied reports that a former senator, Kanti Bello, was sacked from the party by its Katsina state chapter.
In a statement Thursday, the party said the news of Mr. Bello’s expulsion is “nothing but a piece of bunkum. It is absolutely untrue”.
There were reports last week that Mr. Bello was expelled by CPC in Katsina state “as part of measures to sanitize the party ahead its merger with others to form the APC”.
The expulsion notice for Mr. Bello was allegedly announced by Katsina state care taker chairman, Farouk Adamu Aliyu during the party’s meeting to discuss the issue of merger in the state.
The statement by the party’s spokesperson, Rotimi Fashakin, however said Mr. Aliyu has denied signing such an expulsion order.
“This explains why we believe this rumour, which was intended to cause disaffection among our teeming supporters, was the handiwork of mischief makers,” the statement said.
It also said “We hereby state unequivocally that Senator Kanti Bello remains a bona-vide member of the Party and expected to contribute to the growth and social harmony of the Party in Katsina state and Nigeria. The expulsion allegation should therefore be discarded as a piece of fiction, lacking efficacy”.
