The All Progressives Congress has expelled a member of the House of Representatives for anti-party activities.
Usman Kuomo was expelled for alleged anti-party activities and actions capable of bringing the party to disrepute.
A resolution of the executive committee of the party listed a number of alleged infringements to justify the lawmaker’s expulsion.
The resolution which was signed by 21 APC leaders of Kumo East was addressed to the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole, and copied to security and political leaders.
Hon. Kumo, however, discredited the resolution alleging that some of the signatures were forged.
The party leadership accused the lawmaker of anti-party activities, “infamous conduct in his official capacity and other offences likely to have adverse effects on the reputation, progress and stability of our great party.
They said the decision to suspend Mr Kumo was taken after an investigation by a seven-member committee constituted by the ward executives.
“Having completed its assignment, the disciplinary committee submitted its report and recommendations to the ward executive committee.”
Reacting to his expulsion, Hon. Kuomo berated the APC for the step.
“This cannot stand anywhere because in the case of (APC National Chairman) Oshiomhole the Supreme Court said only the National Executive Council of the party can dismiss any member from the party, not any individual or chapter.
“Moreover, as I am talking to you, we just delivered a letter to the IGP to investigate that letter because right now we have people who have said their signature were forged,” he said
