The Executive of the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Saturday sacked the state Chairman of the party, Hon Ibrahim El-Sudi.
The party’s zonal Chairman South, Hon Dauda Ayuba Dakinjo, while briefing journalists in Jalingo, said the state party Chairman, Hon Ibrahim El-Sudi l-Sudi, continued to fan the embers of discord and rancour to the detriment of the progress of the party in the state.
He maintained that El-Sudi, since he became the Chairman of the party, made all the decisions alone.
He stressed that his arrogant decisions were always made together with some of his stooges through whom he implemented them.
He maintained that decision had resulted in disaffection and disharmony in the state’s chapter of the All Progressives Congress in Taraba State .
He said, “His attitude has the ridiculed APC, disaffection, and unnecessary litigations.
“Dont forget, few day days ago, the Supreme Court cancelled gubernatorial primary election and some other primary elections held by the party in the state.
“In large part, the issues led to litigations which resulted from El-Sudi’s inability to reconcile and accommodate varied interests within the party.
“Again, the five local government chairmen removed and replaced by El-Sudi were reinstated by the court but El-Sudi has deliberately refused to obey the judgment of the court.”
According to him, despite the Court ruling against El-Sudi on the removal of the five chairmen, he recently went ahead to purportedly remove two (2) chairmen of Lau and Jalingo Local Governments, which was revolting and same led to a serious tension which threatened security and peace within the entire APC family and supporters in the state.
“We, the entire Exco of Taraba state APC hereby resolve to disassociate our good selves with the unconstitutional manner of removing elected officers of the Party with reference to aforementioned chairmen.
“In all, the conducts of El-Sudi to favour some party members and disfavour some, and not to provide level paying ground and fairness to all party members, has created widespread disaffection among party faithfuls.
“In view of all the above infractions by El-Sudi and his retrogressive style of leadership, we pass vote of no confidence in him to continue as the Taraba State APC chairman.
“We have therefore invoked the powers conferred on us by Article 21(d)(vi) of the APC Constitution and have removed him from office as the APC Chairman Taraba State.”
