Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Ahmed Mo­hammed, Bauchi

Ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of the People’s Demo­cratic Party (PDP) in Gi­ade Lo­cal Govern­ment Area of Bauchi State, has sacked the chair­man of the party in the lo­cal govern­ment, Al­haji Auwalu Maidoya, and the fi­nan­cial sec­re­tary, Al­haji Datti Dan’Iya.

The de­ci­sion to sack the two of­fi­cers from their po­si­tions came at the end of the meet­ing of the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee in Gi­ade af­ter de­lib­er­at­ing on the re­port of the dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee set up to probe al­le­ga­tions against the duo.

Pre­sent­ing the re­port be­fore the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee, chair­man of the dis­ci­plinary com­mit­tee, Malam Dahuru Umar, said the com­mit­tee met over com­plaints re­ceived from two mem­bers of the party; Yayaji Nakari and Dan­ladi Sabon Sara over al­le­ga­tions that the chair­man had aban­doned his of­fice and had vi­o­lated the rules and reg­u­la­tions of the party.

Umar said the com­mit­tee in­vited the chair­man to de­fend him­self be­fore the com­mit­tee, but that he re­fused com­ing and did not send a rep­re­sen­ta­tive. He said due to that, the com­mit­tee ad­vised the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of the party to re­move him from of­fice un­der Ar­ti­cle 21.7 and 21.8 of the 2009 PDP Con­sti­tu­tion (amended).

The com­mit­tee ap­pointed the deputy chair­man of the party, Al­haji Umaru Abunari as act­ing chair­man.

The com­mit­tee re­solved that the fi­nan­cial sec­re­tary had de­camped to APC and de­clared his seat va­cant.
