APC: We Will Show Mai Mala The Way Out - Marafa Threatens

The lawmaker representing Zamfara Central Senatorial District, Kabiru Marafa, has dismissed the threat by the All Progressives Congress Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee to expel him from the party.

Marafa in his reaction to the alleged plan to expel him threatened to sue the chairman of the national caretaker committee of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State over the violation of the party’s constitution in the conduct of the party’s affairs.


The committee in a statement released through its secretary, John James Akpanudodehe, had warned Marafa to submit to party supremacy or be sanctioned.

Marafa in his reaction said he cannot be silenced by the threat of the caretaker committee.

Marafa said, “Expelling me from the party will only aggravate the problem.

“It will herald the beginning of the agitation; rule of law must be respected.

“The committee is illegal and alien to the constitution of the party, we are building everything on nothing.

“Rather than the expulsion threat, the committee or the chairman should respond to issues I raised.

“The function of the Mai Mala committee is to plan a convention just as its name implies, Mai Mala is the chairman of the APC convention planning committee and not APC itself.

“Section 17 (4) of the constitution of our beloved party, says ‘no officer in any organ of the party shall hold executive position office in government concurrently’.

“Article 20 states the only way the leadership of the party can evolve.

“We will show him the way out dishonourably. We would not allow the party we contributed immensely to develop to be destroyed by over-ambitious self-centred and enemies of the party and the country.

“This is the party we laboured, toiled and laid the foundation for its success.

“We will not allow those who have little or no stake in the party to destroy it or to please certain individuals and achieve their selfish interest.”
