The chairman, Senate Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Senator Kabiru Garba Marafa (APC, Zamfara Central) yesterday listed 10 reasons why Zamfara State governor, Abdulaziz Yari should be immediately expelled from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Marafa, a leading governorship aspirant in Zamfara State in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday, said the National Working Committee (NWC) under the leadership of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole should expel the governor and all those he declared as winners of the controversial primaries he conducted.

Specifically, Marafa an ardent supporter of President Muhammadu Buhari, said the action is necessary to stop the governor and his cohorts from their plot to pull down the APC and frustrate the second term bid of the President.

“The governor should be expelled for gross indiscipline and violation of  our party constitution.” The measure becomes necessary to maintain party discipline and deter others that may be tempted to take similar actions to achieve their selfish objectives,” he said.

According to Marafa, the 10 reasons include the frustration of  the efforts of NWC to conduct direct primaries for Zamfara State.

For Governor Yari directing state officials to conclude an election that was cancelled by a panel that has legal authority to do so.

“Aiding and abating of violence that lead to the death of 6 people, and injuring of many others including women and children on the 3rd of October 2018.

“Insulting publicly the national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole  and issue a of threat to cause  bloodshed if the NWC refuses to do his bidding

“Announcing the result of an illegal election conducted by his faction in violation of subsisting court order.

“Blocking APC chances of fielding candidates by conducting and announcing an illegal election on 7th October 2018.

“Causing disunity and disaffection among APC family in Zamfara State.

“Hiring of Commercial NGOs to issue statements/ultimatum on matters before the law court.

“Neglecting totally, his primary responsibility of providing leadership in the face of wanton  killings, raping and kidnappings of innocent people that he is being paid to protect, thereby portraying APC in bad light at both locally and internationally.

And “spending of Zamfara taxpayers money on the sponsorship of protest to remove the law abiding national chairman of our great party, APC Comrade Adams Oshiomhole,” Senator Marafa stated.
