Jigawa Assembly suspends council chairman over alleged disloyalty to APC chairman

Jigawa State House of Assembly has indefinitely suspended the Council Chairman of Yankwashi Local Government Area of the State over alleged disloyalty to the State chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The Chairman, House committee on Information, representing Kafin Hausa Constituency, Hon. Muhammad Na’im disclosed this to newsmen.

He said the council chairman was suspended over alleged mischief and spreading false information against the State Chairman of the APC, Honourable Aminu Ahmed.

According to him “the House received a letter of complaint from the APC chairman accusing the Local Government Chairman of spreading false information that he (APC chairman) is extorting money to favour some aspirants.”

He, however, explained that the House had also received a series of complaints of misappropriation of public funds and abuse of office against eight other council chairmen.

“The house had also set up a committee to investigate the eight more local government chairmen. They include Gwaram, Kafinhausa, Guri, Miga, Birninkudu, Birniwa and Babura,” he said.

However, one of the council chairmen, who preferred anonymity, described the accusations as false and unfounded.

He said the allegation was a mere political witch-hunt.
