APC group passes vote of no con­fi­dence on Bauchi sen­a­tors, Reps

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Kabiru R. An­war, Yola

A group, the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) Van­guard for Peace and Tran­quil­ity has passed a vote of no con­fi­dence on the 12 mem­bers of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives and three sen­a­tors from Bauchi State.

A press re­lease signed by Tanko Umar Jakusko, the North-east zonal sec­re­tary of the group, al­leged that the leg­is­la­tors were work­ing with the op­po­si­tion to sab­o­tage Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari’s anti-cor­rup­tion ef­forts.

The state­ment, which noted that the de­ci­sion was taken at the end of the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee meet­ing, held in Yola, Adamawa State, ac­cused the af­fected politi­cians of be­tray­ing their party, the APC, as well as the elec­torate.

“It is dis­heart­en­ing and un­be­liev­able, watch­ing some Na­tional Assem­bly mem­bers, who rode on the back of APC, par­tic­u­larly in Bauchi State, now se­cretly ro­manc­ing with the op­po­si­tion PDP and fraud­sters to jeop­ar­dise the ef­forts of the fed­eral and their state gov­ern­ment for self­ish in­ter­ests.

“We ob­served help­lessly, the events of the past few weeks, how Bauchi State was tar­geted for po­lit­i­cal van­dal­i­sa­tion and acts of sab­o­tage by its rep­re­sen­ta­tives,” the state­ment said.

The group there­fore called on the pres­i­dency and the lead­er­ship of the rul­ing party, to take im­me­di­ate ac­tion to pre­vent chaos in the coun­try.
