Alhaji Ibrahim Babandi, the state PDP Chairman, said this when he spoke with newsmen in Dutse on Wednesday.
“At about three weeks ago, we received a letter from Ringim that our former governorship candidate, Malam Aminu Ibrahim Ringim has been suspended due to anti party activities and sabotage being perpetrated by him.
“After looking at the letter, we looked into the party’s constitution which provided that we should set up a committee to investigate the matter, which we did,” he said.
Babandi added:“The committee decided to invite both the ward executive committee and the person under investigation.
“After the invitation, the committee, under the chairmanship of Alhaji Muhammad Daguro, confirmed in its report that Ibrahim was found to have committed the acts.”
He said the committee invited him twice to appear and defend himself before the committee, but he failed to do so.
“We wrote a letter to him but he decided not appear before the committee on two consecutive times, and we were advised to take the next action, which was to expel him from the party, a par recommendation of the committee, which we endorsed,” he said.
According to him, the executive committee of the party has urged him to stop parading him as member of the party henceforth.
When contacted, Ibrahim said the State Executive Committee lacked the power to expel him from the party.
He said that the executives were illegally constituted hence they lacked the power to invite or take action against any member of the party.(NAN)
