Ameto remains Kogi APC executive chairman, says Abdullahi
Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, National Publicity Secretary of the party, made the clarification in a statement on Saturday in Abuja while reacting to reports that Ameto had been expelled from the party.
´´”APC wishes to clarify that neither state nor zonal executives, constituted in whatever name or form, can expel anyone from the party, only convention can do so.
´´”We restate that the Kogi State Working Committee of APC led by the Chairman, Alhaji Haddy Ameto remains the only recognised executive committee of the party in the State,´´” he said.
He added that any disciplinary action being contemplated must be referred to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), as stated in the party´s constitution.
He enjoined all party members at all levels to desist from taking unilateral actions that were likely to further jeopardise its on-going peace process.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that on Friday, a faction of the party announced the expulsion of Ameto along with some members of the executive of the party.
