CPC shuts door against dismissed members

14 June 2013, 09:18

Katsina- Ahead of APC's registration by INEC, the Katsina State Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) said on Thursday that it would not register any of its dismissed members.

The News Agency of Nigeria (CPC) in the state was factionalised following the outcome of the 2011 general elections, leading to the dismissal of some members.

CPC along with ACN and ANPP have merged and are seeking for registration as the All Progressives Congress (APC).

However, the state CPC Caretaker Chairman, Faruq Aliyu, declared in Katsina while addressing party members on the merger, that the erring members would not be admitted into the APC because of their antecedents.

Aliyu said that the decision was reached at the State Executive Council meeting of the party, which was endorsed by the party’s Board of Trustees (BOT) at the national level.

"The party wants to restate and affirm its stand on the dismissal of some members for violating the party constitution.

"Whoever is dismissed by CPC remains out of it and will never be allowed to enter the new APC,’’ he said.

He listed some of the dismissed persons to include Sen. Abdu Yandoma, Sen. Yakubu Lado, Sen. Sani-Store, Dr Yusha’u Armaya'u and Dr Bashir Kurfi.

Others were Messrs Muntari Dandutse, Murtala Isah, Musa Kafin-soli, Tasiu Doguro and Rabiu Charanchi.

He added that: "As far as we are concerned, Sen. Kanti Bello is not a CPC member and will never be allowed to join the APC.''

Aliyu also inaugurated a seven-man committee for each local government area of the state, charging them to source for members for the new party in their respective areas.

He also informed them that some PDP governors would join the new party.
