All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gombe State has suspended Senator Amos Bulus and Yunusa Abubakar, a lawmaker representing Yamaltu-Deba Federal Constituency over alleged anti-party activities.
The suspension, TheICIR reports, was announced in a statement released on April 8, by Moses Kyari, the state APC Publicity Secretary.
Kyari said the lawmakers were suspended by their ward executives after they were found to have been engaged in anti-party activities during the 2023 general elections in the state.
Kyari said that the senator was suspended by the ward executives of Bambam in Balanga local council.
“He (Bulus) was suspended for anti-party activities at the just concluded general elections.
“This came about as result of a petition written from his ward which caused a five-man committee from the ward to investigate and get to the root of the matter, about two weeks ago,” he said.
Kyari explained that the senator could not defend himself before a committee that was set up to investigate the matter.
According to him, Abubakar’s suspension was based on the recommendations of a disciplinary committee which found him guilty of anti-party activities.
Kyari said the suspension of the lawmakers had been ratified by the state APC Executive Council.J
