The North East zone of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday inaugurated the reconstituted three-member disciplinary panel to investigate the allegations levelled against the `suspended’ Vice-Chairman of the zone, Mustapha Salihu.
the inauguration of the investigative panel was carried out by the Zonal Secretary of the party, Abubakar Ajiya, at the International Conference Centre (ICC), Abuja.
The inauguration came in spite the dismissal of the suspension of Salihu by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.
The APC on Monday through its national publicity secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu said categorically that the purported suspension is a nullity as the “North East Zonal Office” does not have such powers to suspend a National Officer.
But, the zonal secretary, Ajiya, said the panel had been reconstituted with Abubakar Tutare, a former senator, from Taraba State as chairman.
He said Sani Haruna from Adamawa State would serve as Secretary and Abdulkadir S. Abdulkadir from Bauchi State as member.
According to him, the committee is mandated to look into the allegations of alleged forgery, failure to convene meetings, causing disharmony and disunity preferred against the suspended vice chairman.
