Listen to article

SAN FRANCISCO, April 06, (THEWILL) – The Deputy Governor of Jigawa State, Alhaji Ahmad Mahmud, has been expelled from the Peoples Democratic Party for alleged anti-party activities.

His expulsion was announced in statement signed by the PDP Chairman of Galagamma ward in Gumel, Jigawa, Alhaji Ibrahim Kafinta in Dutse, the Jigawa State capital.

The chairman, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said the decision to expel Mahmud was taken during a stakeholders meeting held in his ward.

Kafinta alleged that the deputy governor had sabotaged PDP during the recent National Assembly election.

The PDP lost the presidential election in the state to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said the Gumel Local Government headquarters of the party had endorsed the expulsion.

Efforts by NAN to get the comments of the deputy governor on the matter was futile as he neither picked a call nor replied a text message sent to him.
