Kano state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has reversed the expulsion of suspended member of the house of representatives, Abdulmumin Jibrin.
The APC in a statement by its public relations officer in Kano, Yahaya Karaye on Saturday described the situation as “embarrassing”.
The party described Jibrin as a “strong”, and “essential” member of the party.
The party promised to deal with mischievous members behind the pronouncement, saying they lacked the authority to do so.
“We have received with absolute disappointment rumour of expulsion of Hon. Abdulmumin Jibrin Kofa, a strong pillar of our party, the APC in Kano and Nigeria as a whole. The unfounded report was said to have originated from a member of the party who clearly abused the party’s protocols in disseminating that wrong information to the public,” the statement read.
“The party wishes to state that neither the leader of the party in Kano, His Excellency, the executive Governor of Kano, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje nor the state chairman and state executive committee were consulted or endorsed such mischievous act.
“The party is appealing to the public to disregard that mischief as it sets out to penalize all the members involved in this dispiriting embarrassment and unnecessary confusion among members and in the media.
“APC does not and will never tolerate impersonation, abuse of office and wanton vindictiveness by a member who had no authority to make such grave pronouncement, especially at the time we are building a united force to deliver on our promises for the people of Nigeria.
“We wish to emphasize that Hon. Jibrin is an essential member of the APC, and his contributions and representations of our interests have never gone unrecognized.”
