Suspended Taraba APC senior executive resists sack

2015-05-12 08:59

Abuja - The lingering crisis in the Taraba State chapter of All Progressive Congress (APC) has assumed a new dimension as the Deputy Chairman, Martin Usman Ibrahim, called for a probe of the party's account.

He accused the party's chairman, Hassan Jika Ardo, of "hijacking" the party and stressed the need for the relevant authority to probe the party's account to unveil corruption within the party in the state.

"My chairman is the cause of APC failure in the state. There are so many negatives things he carried out that are against the constitution of the party. He always claimed that the National headquarters did not release funds for the party in the state. He also claimed he was always using his personal money to fund the party," Ibrahim said

Ibrahim is resisting his suspension, remaining defiant and vowing never to relinquish his position.

He claimed he had not received any letter regarding his suspension.

"Although the party, through the chairman, Hassan Jika Ardo, has claimed to have suspended me from office, as far as I am concerned, I am still the deputy chairman of APC in Taraba," Ibrahim said.

He wondered why the party was accusing him of working against the party during the just concluded re-run governorship election in the state.

The rival People's Democratic Party (PDP) won the tightly-contested poll.
