Zamfara APC crises: Senator Marafa expelled from party

The crises rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Zamfara took a new twist on Monday, June 3, with the party in the state expelling Senator Kabiru Marafa.

Marafa had taken the party to court in the aftermath of the governorship primary election in the state which was not in his favour.

In the heat of the political squabbles, the Supreme Court recently declared the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) winner of the governorship, National Assembly and state legislative elections after ruling disqualifying the APC.

Marafa, who represents Zamfara Central, was expelled with Ibrahim Wakkala, the deputy to immediate past governor, Abdulaziz Yari.

Also expelled, according to a statement from the party, is the legislator representing Kauran Namoda/Birnin Magaji constituency at the House of Representatives, Aminu Jaji.

In the expulsion letter signed by Shehu Isah, the spokesperson of the APC in Zamfara, the politicians allegedly engaged in anti-party activities and this was arrived at during a state executive council meeting.

Isah quoted article 21 (A)ii and (D)v of the APC constitution to back the decision of the party.

According to him, the cited provision frowns against members taking the party to the court.

He urged the public to be aware of the party’s decision.
