They said their action became imperative following an alleged decision of the governor to rebuff all attempts to hold a meeting with the State Working Committee of the party since he was sworn-in as governor.
The APC leaders, who met in Abuja for over three hours on Monday, accused the governor, among others, of appointing card-carrying members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state as commissioners, special advisers, and councils’ caretaker committee members.
Today reports that the leaders also accused the governor of appointing people without carrying the party along.
Other members of the disciplinary committees are Hon. S.T.Adejoh (Secretary), Senator Mohammed Ohiare, Senator Abubakar Abdulrahman, Senator Nicholas Ugbane, and Haddy Ametuo, the APC Chairman in Kogi State.
Others are, Hon.Buba Jibril, Hajia Hajara Aliyu, Hon. Folasade Joseph, and Hon. Suleiman Ali.
