Zamfara APC suspends rep over ‘anti-party activities’

The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Zamfara has suspended Sani Jaji, a member of the house of representatives, from the party.

Yusuf Idris, the APC spokesperson in Zamfara, announced the lawmaker’s suspension in a statement released on Friday.

Jaji, who represents the Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji federal constituency, is the chairman of the house committee on ecological fund.

The lawmaker was one of the aspirants who sought to be the speaker of the green chamber in June 2023.

Idris said Jaji was suspended by his ward over alleged anti-party activities in the 2023 elections.

The party claimed that the legislator shunned invitations to attend APC activities at the ward and also took actions that polarised the party.

“The State Executive Committee of the APC, Zamfara state Chapter held an emergency meeting at the State Party Secretariat, Gusau on the 17th May 2024, where Hon. Jaji’s suspension matter was tabled to the members during which a report of an already constituted state fact-finding committee on anti-party activities established in the aftermath of the 2023 Zamfara State Governorship election was presented to the state’s committee for deliberations by members,” the statement reads.

“Sir, it may interest you to know that the findings of that committee, as contained in its report dated July 15, 2023, equally fingered Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji and his direct involvement in anti-party activities and recommended for his immediate suspension from the party pending the review and deliberations by the State Disciplinary Committee and subsequent ratification by the State Executive Committee.

“The 7-Man State Disciplinary Committee also recommended his suspension from the party having failed to appear before the committee despite several invitations given to him.

“Now the State Executive Committee has reviewed the earlier findings made by the State Disciplinary Committee, agreed with its recommendations, and resolved to suspend him based on the findings.

“Given the foregoing, the Zamfara State APC Executive Committee resolved and approved the suspension of Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji from the party based on the recommendations of the State Disciplinary Committee, which was earlier made, coupled with his recent suspension by APC Birnin Magaji Ward Executive Committee and affirmed by APC Birnin magaji Local Government Executive Committee.”
