Crisis rocks Gombe APC as group alleges hijack of party
A crisis of confidence is rocking Gombe State chapter of All Progressives Congress (APC) as a group within the party is accusing some high-ranking members of hijacking the party.
Speaking through their spokesman, Khamisu Mailantarki, the group complained that some members of the party led by Senator Danjuma Goje, have now allegedly hijacked the affairs of APC in Gombe, thus marginalizing the real members of the party.
He went ahead to call on the national headquarters of the party to, as a matter of urgency look into the matter so as not to jeopardize the wide acceptance the party is enjoying in the state.
Flanked by the state chairmen of the defunct All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), which all merged to become APC, Mailantarki claimed that members of the then new Peoples Democratic Party, led by Senator Danjuma Goje, have manipulated situations to hijack the affairs of the party in Gombe.
Khamisu Mailantarki, who represents Gombe-Kwami–Funakaye Federal Constituency at the National Assembly said he and the chairmen of the defunct ANPP, ACN and CPC have made efforts to resolve the matter amicably, but that the issue has defied all solutions.
He, therefore, called on the national headquarters of the party to call the leader of the party in the state to order.
