The Gombe chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended Senator Amos Bulus, who represents Gombe South Senatorial District, for alleged anti-party activities.
The suspension of Senator Amos Bulus for alleged anti-party activities was communicated through a statement signed by Moses Kyari, the State APC Publicity Secretary, on Saturday in Gombe.
Mr. Kyari further announced the suspension of Yunusa Abubakar, a member representing Yamaltu-Deba Federal Constituency at the National Assembly, also on grounds of alleged anti-party activities.
He said that the lawmakers were suspended by their ward executives after they were found to have been engaged in anti-party activities during the 2023 general election in the state.
Mr Kyari said that the senator was suspended by the Ward Executives of Bambam in Balanga Local Government Area of the state.
“He (Bulus) was suspended for anti-party activities at the just concluded general elections.
“This came about as result of a petition written from his ward which caused a five-man committee from the ward to investigate and get to the root of the matter, about two weeks ago,” he said.
Mr Kyari said that a committee was set up to investigate the matter adding that the committee invited the senator but he could not defend himself from the allegations hence the committee recommended his suspension from the party.
He said Mr Abubakar’s suspension was based on the recommendations of a disciplinary committee which found him guilty of anti-party activities.
Mr Kyari said the suspension of the lawmakers had been ratified by the state APC Executive Council.
