Just In: Showdown in Abuja as APC Summons Jibrin for Bringing 'Dishonour' to the Party
According to TheCable News, the lawmaker is expected to appear at the national secretariat of the party on Tuesday, to explain his allegations of budget padding made against Yakubu Dogara, and 12 other lawmakers.
The invitation letter to the lawmaker representing Kiru-Bebeji federal constituency, in Kano state, which was signed by Lawal Shuaibu, the party’s deputy national chairman for the north, asserted that Jibrin has brought “dishonour” to the party, owing to the public nature of his allegations.
“As a disciplined party, the constitution of our party has made adequate provisions on ways of resolving any issue among our members.
“It behoves on the party to take all necessary steps in order to ensure that no member of the family brings dishonour to the party.
“To say the least, it is absolutely unacceptable to resort to media war as a means of settling scores without recourse to and/or exhausting the party’s internal dispute resolution mechanism.
“You are, therefore, by this invitation, expected to appear before the undersigned at the APC National Secretariat on Tuesday, 2nd August, 2016, at 2 p.m.
“Kindly note that failure to and/or refusal to honour this invitation will amount to a decision you have made not to submit to the party,” the statement said.
