APC suspends Kaduna State Governor, El-Rufai for six months

A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna state has suspended Nasir el-Rufai, governor of the state, for six months. El-Rufai’s suspension is coming three days after the faction, known as Kaduna Restoration Group, issued him a query and suspended three of his aides.

The faction led by Suleiman Hunkuyi, senator representing Kaduna north central, had accused el-Rufai of “anti- party activities and anti-human activities”.

Hukunyi had said if the governor did not respond to the query within 48 hours, “the state working committee will sit down and deliberate”.

In a statement on Sunday, the faction said el-Rufai refused to honour the invitation to defend himself over the allegations levelled against him.

It subsequently concluded to suspend him for six months with immediate effect.

The meeting had in attendance members of the state caucus, members of the national assembly, chairman and members of the state executive and working committees, stakeholders and other prominent members of the APC in attendance.
