Pastor Usani Usani, the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs is not aware of any suspension order on him by the National Working Committee, NWC, of the All progressives Congress, APC, as nobody has notified him any decision
Pastor Ekpenyong Cobham, the Director General of the Usani Governorship Campaign Council who made this known on Sunday in Calabar stated that the Minister has not received any notification from any organ of the party regarding the decision of the NWC of the party.
“The Constitution of our party is clear on cases of suspension of any member; it clearly states circumstances and outlines procedures to be taken to warrant and effect a suspension and in this case, if any suspension exists, Usani’s attention should be drawn to it but if it is not in conformity with the party’s extant laws, then the suspension invariably does not exist” .
He said the suspension ought to come from the ward and not NWC whose only role is to ratify the decision of the party at the ward level not initiate and ratify it themselves.
He said Usani has shown total loyalty to the party which made him won his polling unit and ward in the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections and nothing would deter him from pursuing his principle an rights through the rule of law.
“Usani has shown sufficient loyalty to the party by helping it poll 722 votes against PDP 2 in his polling unit and 4000 votes against PDP 1,000 votes in his Abanankpai council ward in just concluded presidential elections, Usani is the only APC leader in the state to produce a federal Constituency Representative in last Saturday’s election. These and more defines hu slotalty o the party”.
Pasor Cobham said the National Chairman of he APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole was used to acting arbitrarily and was called to order by the president and his recent action is nothing but a descent into high handedness.
