APC suspends women leader over criticism of Kaduna Governor’s debt claims

The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended its state women leader, Maryam Suleiman, citing alleged misconduct.

According to a suspension letter dated March 31st and signed by Ali Maishago and Zakkah Bassahuwa, the APC chairman and secretary of Badarawa/Malali ward respectively, Suleiman was suspended for defaming the character of Governor Uba Sani of Kaduna state.

The letter accuses Suleiman of unauthorized publicity regarding the party’s disputes and orchestrating an attack on the political adviser to the governor, Manzo Maigari, through the use of thugs.

The suspension, deemed indefinite, is pending the investigation into these allegations and is based on Article 21, 2 (v) of the APC constitution.

Suleiman’s criticism of Governor Sani’s statement regarding the debt burden inherited from the previous administration, as expressed in a viral video in Hausa language, is cited as one of the reasons for her suspension.
