Governing party lifts suspension on members

Aanya Igomu, Abuja


Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC has lifted the suspension on two of its members, Deputy National Chairman North, Senator Lawal Shuaibu and the National Vice Chairman Northwest, Inuwa Abdulkadir.

The APC National Chairman, Mr Adams Oshiomhole stated this at the party’s National Secretariat while briefing journalists on the resolutions of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, meeting.

He said that the meeting also resolved to withdraw all court cases that involve any member of the National Executive Committee, NEC.

“We have also resolved that we are going to withdraw all cases in court that any member of the NEC is involved in so that we must lead by example and we have shown that we are capable of managing ourselves and therefore we do not need the minister to help us resolve what we are capable of resolving.

“People have issues which they feel strongly about, and as a result the NWC took some decisions which affected my friend and brother, Sen. Lawal Shuaibu, Deputy National Chairman North. The NWC had a reason for suspending him as at then. Today we have reviewed the situation and we believe that in the spirit of our renewed commitment to build unity and true reconciliation, we as leaders of the party elected at the convention should live by example. And that means for those we think have offended the system, we have chosen to lift their suspensions. Sen. Lawal Shuaibu can resume his duties as Deputy National Chairman, North.

“We also reviewed the matter of Inuwa Abdulkadir, National Vice Chairman Northwest. By the same spirit, the NWC was unanimous in lifting the suspension and he resumes work with immediate effect. So, with thrse two decisions, the two members of the NWC who were suspended, their suspensions have now been lifted,” he said.

Mr. Oshiomhole added that all warring parties amongst the party’s National Executives have proffered and accepted apologies from each other.
