Barely less than 24 hours to state congress, the All progressives Congress (APC) in Jigawa state has suspended former running mate to governor Muhammadu Badaru Abubakar during 2011 general elections under the platform of Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Alhaji Dalladi Auyo.
Alhaji Dalladi Auyo is one of the APC bigwigs in the Jigawa Northeast Senatorial zone and close political ally to governor Badaru Abubakar.
The APC chieftain was suspended for six months on alleged anti-party and flagrant criticism against the state led APC government.
The suspension was announced by APC Chairman Auyo Local Government, Alhaji Sale Muhammad Ganuwa while briefing newsmen on the outcomes of the party caucus meeting in the local government.
Ganuwa said the party took the decision after a series of consultations with all ward leaders and the party caucus.
According to him, “the party executives agreed with the decision as a disciplinary action against the calculated attempt to smear the reputation of governor Badaru and the good work executed by APC which transform the life of Jigawa people at all ramifications.
Alhaji Danladi Auyo had recently on a radio program attacked Governor Muhammad Badaru Abubakar and the All-Progressive Congress leadership style describing it as a total failure.
As at the time of filling this report, all efforts to reach Alh Danladi Auyo on phone failed.
