The All Progressives Congress (APC) has forwarded a query to Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna state due to what it described as 'anti-party and anti-human activities' on the part of the governor.
A statement by the party's acting state chairman, Danladi Wada, said the decision was made after proper investigation and consultation with stakeholders and senior members of the party.
Wada said: “His Excellency, Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai has been queried and we are expecting him to answer the query within 48 hours. Failure to do that, the state working committee will seat down and deliberate. We queried Mallam Nasiru El-Rufai for his anti party activates and anti human activities.”
Wada also announced the suspension of the special adviser to the governor on political matters, Uba Sani; the commissioner for finance, Audu Kwari; and the party’s acting secretary, Yahaya Baba-Pate. He pointed out that the three allies of the governor were suspended for 18 months.
