The Zamfara State chapter of the All Progressive Congress Party (APC) has suspended a member of the House of Representatives, Aminu Sani Jaji, over allegation of engaging in anti-party activities.

It is understood that Jaji represents Kaura Namoda/Birnin Magaji constituency at the House of Representatives.

He was also accused of factionalisation of party organs, and engaging in dishonest practices.

His suspension was contained in a statement on Friday jointly signed by Hon. Tukur Danfulani, State Chairman and Hon. Ibrahim Umar Dangaladima, Secretary, respectively.

The statement said the State Executive Committee of the APC, Zamfara state Chapter held an emergency meeting at the State Party Secretariat, Gusau on the 17tm May 2024, where Hon. Jaji’s suspension matter was tabled to the members.

It was reported that during the meeting a report of an already constituted state fact-finding committee on Anti-Party activities established in the aftermath of the 2023 Zamfara State Governorship election was presented to the state’s committee for deliberations by members.

The statement read, “Sir, it may interest you to know that, the findings of that committee as contained in its report dated 15 July, 2023 equally fingered Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji and his direct involvement in Anti-Party activities and recommended for his immediate suspension from the party pending the review and deliberations by the State Disciplinary Committee and subsequent ratification by the State Executive Committee.

“Sir, the 7-Man State Disciplinary Committee also recommended his suspension from the party having failed to appear before the committee despite several invitations given to him, now the State Executive Committee has reviewed the earlier findings made by the State Disciplinary Committee and agreed with its recommendations and resolved to suspend him based on the findings. (A copy of the facts finding and Disciplinary Committee Reports dated 15th July 2023 and 20th August 2023 respectively attached for your perusal).

The statement added that, “Finally, and in view of the foregoing, the Zamfara State APC Executive Committee resolved and approved the suspension of Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji from the party based on the recommendations of the State Disciplinary Committee which was earlier made, coupled with his recent suspension by APC Birnin Magaji Ward Executive Committee and affirmed by APC Birnin magaji Local Government Executive Committee.”
