The Committee, to be chaired by Alhaji Haruna Ahmadu Danzago and Secretary, Alhaji Nuraddeen Zubair, were given one week to investigate and submit their findings and as well recommend appropriate action against Doguwa and Kwankwaso.

He declared that the action was taken “having received complaints and petitions from card-carrying members of our great party, the APC, about the case of misconduct and abuse of office by the state party chairman, Haruna Umar Doguwa and the state Organizing Secretary, Sanusi Suraju Kwankwaso of which the former, after issuing out a press conference duly agreed upon by the party Working Committee and Elders Committee respectively, and he later betrayed the trust by making a unilateral statement that refuted the party's position on the subject matter.
