APC suspends SGF, Boss Mustapha for losing his polling units Presidential and governorship elections to PDP

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State has suspended the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, for losing his polling unit to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the presidential and governorship polls.
The party disclosed that the SGF did not contribute to the victory of its presidential and governorship candidates.
Announcing the suspension at a press conference in Yola, chairman of Gwadabawa Ward said Mustapha was not committed to APC’s victory at the presidential election.
He stated that the indefinite suspension followed complaints from his ward, adding that no individual could be above the party that gave them the platform.
But in a sudden twist to the announcement of the indefinite suspension slammed on the SGF, the State Working Committee of the party under the leadership of the acting Chairman, Chief Samaila Tadawus, declared the announcement as “unconstitutional, null and void and of no effect.”
The Adamawa State APC SWC, also announced the directive on the local government executive committee of Yola North, to constitute a disciplinary committee to immediately investigate and recommend appropriate action.
Secretary of the party, Dr. Raymond Chidama, who addressed journalists at the party secretariat on behalf of the SWC, frowned at the penchant of party members who were being sponsored by “opposition elements within the party with malicious intent to attack elders of the party through actions that flagrantly disregard the party’s constitution.”
He said, “We hereby state clearly that such suspension is unconstitutional, null and void and is of no effect, because the state working committee has warned the ward executives in the past to desist from this acts of targeting elders of the party and disregarding constitutional provisions, appropriate sanctions will be applied after thorough investigations.”
Meanwhile, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared the Adamawa State governorship election inconclusive.
The INEC collation officer in the state announced this on Monday evening, March 20, 2023.
The collation officer said a winner could not be declared because the number of collected PVCs at over 37,000 is more than the margin of lead by Governor Ahmadu Fintiri over his challenger Aishatu Binani of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
According to the results collated, Fintiri won in 13 local governments while Binani won in eight.
With the latest development, many are still hoping that Binani will break the jinx to become the first elected female governor in the history of Nigeria.
