The All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kebbi State has denied expelling a senator, Bala Ibn Na’Allah.
A post by facebook group, Dandalin APC a Kebbi, that Mr. Na’Allah had been expelled was circulated by residents of the North-western state.
However, the APC Publicity Secretary in Kebbi, Sani Dododo, in an interview with journalists on Sunday denied the expulsion.
“APC party has rules and regulations governing the party,” he said. “So a personality with the status of Senator Bala Ibn Na’Allah in the party and also from the constituency he is representing cannot be expelled from the party without committing any offense.
“Even if he offended the party, due process must be followed. Unless it goes through the constitutional channels from ward level to local government level and state and up to Central Working Committee of 16 members before a party member will be expelled from the party.”
Mr. Dododo said the senator had not committed any offense against the party. He asked supporters to ignore the expulsion rumour.
When contacted, Mr. Na’Allah said he was not aware of any expulsion.
“I am just hearing from you now,” he said.
