The nation reporters report that the he crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress in Bauchi State has degenerated following the expulsion of the state party chairman, Aliyu Misau, by the Kukadi/Gundari ward executives in Misau Local Government Area of the state.

The ward said it suspended Misau over alleged anti-party activities during the March 18 governorship election.

The ward secretary, Aliyu Adamu, told journalists that the leadership took the decision in order to save the party and instil discipline among members of the party in the LGA and the state in general.

Adamu, who was flanked by other executives of the party in the ward while speaking during a press briefing held at the Nigerian Union of Journalist Secretariat, alleged that Misau did not vote for the gubernatorial candidate of the APC.

“Aliyu Misau has abandoned the leadership responsibilities that rest on his shoulders in the APC, especially how he avoided the campaigns of candidates of the party, from the gubernatorial candidate to the national and state assemblies.

“Secondly, it is his lackadaisical attitude, which he showed during the governorship and state assembly elections in the state. In fact, despite being the state chairman of the APC, he didn’t vote for the gubernatorial candidate.
“Thirdly, his attitude discouraged or hindered many people from voting for the APC in the elections that have just been conducted.

“We decided among ourselves that we have removed his name from the register and invalidated the card that made him a member of the APC.”

But in a swift reaction, Misau, when contacted, said he had travelled to Abuja, insisting that he was still the state chairman of the party.

“I remain the APC state chairman in Bauchi, and I have not been removed because due process was not adhered to.

“Their action is an act of ignorance, and those who announced my expulsion are not leaders of the party; we have a ward leader of our party,” he stated.
