Taraba APC: Fresh crisis as DSK Campaign Organisation rejects inauguration of splinter exco.
The DSK campaign organization on Sunday opposed the appointment and inauguration of a splinter local Government Party executives by the State Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Barr Ibrahim Tukur El-Sudi.
The Chairman of the Campaign organization Hon Abba Akawuzaga who aired their stand in a press briefing in Jalingo described the action by the party chairman as unilateral and unacceptable.
“I, on behalf of the four local government Party Chairmen here by vehemently oppose the unilateral decision of the state APC chairman Alhaji El-Sudi.
“It is on record that the splinter local government Chairmen that were inaugurated yesterday were never elected by the congress in line with the provisions of the constitution of our great party and so could not stand as chairmen of these respective local government areas.
“The implications of what transpired yesterday does not only invalidate the El- Sudi led state Exco as the chairmen he is trying to set aside came on board through the same process that brought him and the state Executive to power, but has also opened a window for litigations and agitations that could have far reaching consequences for the party.
“This means that whatever actions taken by these unelected and illegitimate officials can be challenged in court and nullified”. He said.
The Chairman called on the National Secretariat of the Party to address the matter urgently before it causes damage to the party, stressing that such actions was what caused the party to loose the 2019 general elections.
“We urge the national chairman of our party to call El-Sudi to order and warn him against dancing to the dictates of some desperate individuals and moneybags
who want to clinch the ticket of the party through illegitimate means” he said.
He affirmed that as law abiding members of the party, they will not recognize these kangaroo appointments of four Local Government Chairmen and their executives by Alhaji El-sudi.
Recall that on Saturday, the State Party Chairman, Barr El Sudi inaugurated four out of five local Government Chairmen of the party from Southern Taraba.
