Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress in Tumu, Pindiga and Kashere wards of Gombe State, on Sunday, issued a two-week notice to former governor of the state, Senator Danjuma Goje, to apologise to the party or be suspended, The Punch reports.
Speaking at the Pindiga Junior Secondary School, the Ward Chairman of Kashere, Mohammed Kashere, said members of the APC at the ward had unanimously agreed to add two weeks to the already initial four weeks given to the senator to apologise or risk suspension.
According to The punch, Kashere is the ward of the embattled senator representing the Gombe Central Senatorial District.
Today (Monday) marks one month after the APC issued the apology notice to Goje over a November 5, 2021, incident where a life and property were lost.
“The APC state chapter has given him (Goje) an ultimatum of four weeks to tender an apology, but he never came. He is still a card-carrying member of the APC, but we from the Kashere Ward are going to add two weeks to the ultimatum for him to come and apologise. If he refuses to come, we are going to suspend him,” Kashere said.
Members of the ward executive also declared their loyalty to Governor Inuwa Yahaya, who they claimed had delivered the dividends of democracy.
Kashere noted that the current administration’s achievements were uncountable, adding, “We will like to pass a vote of confidence on Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya for his wonderful job since the inception of his administration. His achievements are very numerous and uncountable.”
The ward chairman revealed that over the years, the state had enjoyed relative peace, which would be defended at all cost.
“We believe in peace, some people who are bad eggs in Gombe State, are trying to restore Kalare (militia youths) in Gombe State. You may remember what happened four weeks ago during the coming of the senator representing Gombe Central; casualties were recorded. We believe in peace,” he added.
Also speaking, the Assistant State Publicity Secretary of the APC, Sabo Ibrahim, who is also from the Kashere Ward, stressed that party supremacy superseded everyone irrespective of rank or position.
