The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the suspension of the party’s National Vice Chairman, Inuwa Abdulkadir.

Mr Abdulkadir had been controversially suspended by the Magajin Gari “A” Ward, Sokoto North Local Government Area of the party in Sokoto State. He was accused of working against the APC in the Sokoto State governorship election.

The APC lost the governorship election to incumbent governor Aminu Tambuwal.

The APC spokesperson, Lanre Issa-Onilu, announced the approval of the suspension of Mr Abdulkadir in a statement on Thursday.

“The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has upheld the disciplinary actions of Magajin Gari “A” Ward, Sokoto North Local Government, and the Party’s Sokoto State Executive Committee on the Party’s National Vice Chairman (North West), Inuwa Abdulkadir over anti-party activities,” Mr Issa-Onilu wrote.

“The party organs in Sokoto State have earlier expelled Abdulkadir and passed on their recommendation to the NWC for ratification.

“The decision to uphold the actions of the Sokoto APC organs was taken at a meeting of the NWC held at the Party’s National Secretariat on Thursday.

“Abdulkadir failed to utilise the opportunity to defend himself before the disciplinary committee set up by the NWC to look into the various petitions received against certain members of our party.

“Following the suspension of Abdulkadir, the NWC will subsequently forward the decision of the Sokoto State organs to the Party’s National Executive Committee (NEC) for further actions.”
