No Going Back On El-Rufai’s 6 Months Suspension – APC Chieftain


Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) and Chairman APC Akida, Kaduna State, Tom Maiyashi has said that the six months suspension of  Governor Nasir el-Rufai of Kaduna State from the party still stands.

According to him, despite the demolition of the authentic office of Kaduna State APC  along Sambo road in kaduna, el-Rufai remains suspended.

Speaking to journalists during an interview session at the scene of the demolition, he described the action of the governor as a political immaturity, saying that it is an indication that the governor could not withstand the political pressure within his party.

“This is madness, embarrassing and this has shown that the governor has failed the people of Kaduna State. Despite all this madness, his suspension stands.

“I am disappointed with what I have seen today. This is my saddest day as a politician. Since my career as a civil servant and as a politician I have never seen this kind of political witch-hunting”, the chieftain lamented.
