APC Women Leader Faces Suspension Over Governor’s Debt Burden Remarks

In a recent development, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken disciplinary action against its women leader, Mrs. Amina Suleiman, following allegations of gross misconduct. The suspension, as outlined in a letter dated March 31st, was jointly signed by the APC chairman and secretary of the Badarawa/Malali ward, Ali Maishago and Zakkah Bassahuwa, respectively.

The accusations against Suleiman are twofold: The party alleges that Suleiman defamed the character of Governor Uba Sani. Her unauthorized publicity surrounding the party’s internal dispute reportedly discredited the governor.

Additionally, Suleiman is accused of orchestrating attacks against the political adviser to the governor, Mr. Manzo Maigari. Such actions are deemed unacceptable and in violation of Article 21, 2 (v) of the APC constitution.

The party’s decision is clear: Suleiman’s suspension will remain in effect indefinitely pending a thorough investigation into the allegations.

The controversy leading to Suleiman’s suspension revolves around Governor Uba Sani‘s recent disclosure during a town hall meeting. According to Governor Sani, he inherited a substantial debt burden from the previous administration under former governor Nasir El-Rufai. The specifics of this financial burden include: $587 million in external debt, N85 billion in domestic debt, 115 contractual liabilities.

These financial obligations have significantly impacted the current government’s ability to meet its financial commitments, including the timely payment of workers’ salaries. Governor Sani attributes the salary payment challenges to deductions from the federal allocation, necessitated by the inherited debt burden.

In a widely circulated video delivered in the Hausa language, Mrs. Amina Suleiman expressed her criticism of Governor Sani’s remarks. She accused him of maladministration and cautioned against placing blame solely on former Governor El-Rufai for the current financial predicament.
