APC threatens to sanction erring members

26 August 2015, 18:13

Kaduna - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State has threatened to punish any of its members who violates the party’s constitution.

Acting Chairman of the party, Alhaji Shu’aibu Idris, gave the warning in a statemen in Kaduna on Wednesday.

He said that the party would take disciplinary measures against any erring member who violated laid down rules of the party.

Idris said the party would not be distracted from its determination to meet the yearning and aspirations of the electorate that voted its members into various political offices.

The chairman added that party discipline was necessary in order to remain focussed on the task of meeting “the promises made to the electorate,”

He warned that the APC in the state would not allow any member, whether elected or appointed, to abuse the party’s laws or deviate from its manifesto.

“All executives of the party at ward, local and state levels, appointed and elected must adhere to the party’s supremacy and its manifesto.

He particularly cautioned elected executives and members of the State and National Assemblies under the party not to engage in any act that would breach their oath of office or existing peace in the state.

Idris reminded the members that the party has the power to sanction, suspend or dismiss any member found working against its overall interest.

He appealed to all members to unite and support each other to deliver on the promises made to the electorate.

A crack has emerged in the party, with supporters of Sen. Shehu Sani (APC-Kaduna Central) engaged in war of words with those of Gov. Nasiru El-Rufa’i over some government policies.
