Abdullahi maintained that Bilal has refused to respond to allegations against him.

He absconded from his duty to stay in Abuja when the party was working on reconciling members and addressing grievances within the party’s hierarchy.

“The chairman has shrouded the finances of the party in secrecy and has been running the affairs of the party like a personal investment with no checks and balances and without auditing since he cane on board”, the statement reads in part.
