All Progressives Congress (APC) in Gombe State has expelled the Senator representing the Gombe South Senatorial District, Senator Bulus Amos for alleged anti-party activities.
This is almost a month after the former Governor of the state, Senator Danjuma Goje was also sent out of the party for the same reason.
Bulus like Senator Goje was accused of working for an opposition party throughout the polls.
Addressing the media on Tuesday, 2 May, 2023, the Gombe South Vice Chairman, Musa Awak said his office would unconditionally abide by the decision of the Senator’s Bambam Ward in Balanga Local Government that expelled Senator Bulus.
He said: “though we are on ground and following events as they unfold, yet we concede to the fact that the APC executive at the ward level are closer to the people than us.
“Our major concern as democrats is fair hearing and since we were satisfied that the senator was served notice to attend trials which he ignored, we just have to abide by his expulsion”.
Also, the APC Chairman in Balanga Local Government, Ali Kachala recalled: “when we invited him, he couldn’t convince us he didn’t work against APC at the just concluded elections. We remember he once boasted that no one can expel him; now that we have done just that we await his action.”
The party Chairman in Bambam Ward, Muhammadu Kaka regretted that Bulus’ stance at the election affected the fortune of the party as many candidates lost their bids.
