Katsina PRP Suspends Chairman For 6 Months



The leadership of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Katsina State, has suspended its chairman, Hassan Hamusu Kankara, for six months and threatened to take another disciplinary action against him if its demands are not met.

The party said the failure of the embattled chairman to respond to some allegations levelled against him has vindicated its position that he is guilty.

In the November 30, 2018, suspension letter signed by the trio of the state vice chairman, secretary and the spokesman, Messrs. Ahmad Rufai Katsina, Lawal Rimaye and Rabiu Bawa Dayi, PRP respectively, indicated that Kankara was queried since 23rd November, 2018, as part of the efforts of the state executive committee to correct some anomalies for the progress of the party in the state.

The letter, a copy of which was made available to LEADERSHIP, disclosed that the executive committee sat on November 29 over the issue without the chairman’s response and consequently requested him to submit all documents and property of the party to its secretariat in Katsina or face further sanction.

Meanwhile, the party had expressed serious concern in its query to Kankara over his alleged behavior, saying “Mr Chairman, you rego-centrism led you to run the affairs of this party single handedly.

“For instance, you personally wrote an invitation letter to the national chairman, chairman Board of Trustees, Kano PRP gubernatorial candidate, the PRP North-West Vice Chairperson and many other responsible PRP members to attend the flag off of the Kankia/Kusada/Ingawa Federal Constituency by-election without prior knowledge of the party.”

While reiterating its dissatisfaction with the way and manners the affairs of the party is piloted in Katsina, the committee warned that it was squarely committed to arresting the situation.

It also claimed that that chairman acted wrongly by abandoning the party officials and leaders after the flag off of that campaign in Kankia.

A close associate of the chairman, who did not want his name in print, said the chairman has no comment for now.
