Super maintained that the decision was a tough one for the exco, but it was the best option for the party to instil discipline in the party.

According to Super,

“Sirajo Dada really worked against the success of the APC in the LGA during the 2023 General elections. He was caught going around de-campaigning the candidates of the APC.”

He alleged that Dada went against the position of the APC by campaigning for the candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) for the house of representatives seat.

Dada was accosted by the APC leadership, but he glaringly refused to listen to his party leadership.

He noted that though the APC won the house of representatives election as well as the presidential election in the federal constituency, Dada's action scuttled the chances of the party in securing the senatorial seat of the district.
