Ambassador Yahaya Kwande: queried by Plateau APC
By Peter Amine/Jos
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has queried Amb. Yahaya Kwande, an elder statesman and Board of Trustees (BOT) member of the party.
Mr Letep Dabang, Plateau APC Chairman, who signed the query said that Kwande, a former ambassador to Switzerland attended and spoke at a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) function in Jos.
Dabang requested Kwande to reply the party through him in the next 24 hours or face disciplinary actions.
“As if it was not bad enough as member of APC that you attended a rally of PDP, you also spoke at the event.
“As if that is not enough you also told the people that they should not be surprised if you bring the Executive Governor of Plateau to the PDP.
“You know that the governor is the leader of APC in Plateau and your action constitutes anti-party and has caused serious embarrassment to the APC,” the query read.
Dabang said that failure to respond to query in 24 hours would lead to his suspension and then constitution of a committee to look into the matter.
He said that the party would not shy away from expelling him from the party if the committee recommends such.
The chairman, who spoke about the query at an APC stakeholders meeting in Pankshin, said that party would deal decisively with any member that indulges in such an action.
“You are either working for APC or not. Anybody who does otherwise will be shown the exit door.
“Plateau APC has adopted President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term. There is no reason whatsoever for any member of APC to be going about or supporting a presidential aspirant from another party,” he said.
