Kaduna APC Crisis Gets Messier, el Rufai Suspended For Six Months


The crisis in the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Kaduna state got messier Sunday as the Restoration faction of the party led by Senator Suleiman Hunkuyi announced the suspension of the state governor, Nasir el Rufai, for six months for his failure to respond to a query issued to him last week Thursday.
El Rufai’s suspension is coming two days after the main faction of the party announced the suspension of Senator Hunkuyi for six months and expelled 28 others.
But addressing a press conference in Kaduna Sunday, the factional chairman of the party, Alhaji Danladi Wada said the failure of el Rufai to respond to the query issued him necessitated the latest action.
“This briefing is sequel to 48 hours ultimatum/query and warning issued to the state governor to explain and defend himself against the allegations leveled against him to which he failed to respond.
“The State Working Committee on Saturday 17, February 2018, convened and resolved to consider and to rectify the findings and recommendations of the Disciplinary Committee and the Fact Finding Committee put before it in accordance with the provision of article 21(B) section 3 of the APC constitution and accordingly, the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir el-Rufai stands suspended for 6 months from the APC.
