The Kano State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the House of Representatives chairman of the committee on security and intelligence, Hon. Sha’aban Sharada, for 12 months.
His suspension which was announced by the party chairman in Kano Municipal local government area, Sani Maifata and the secretary, Kamilu Bala, accused Sharada who is a former aide to President Muhammad Buhari, of anti-party activities.
The suspension letter said Sharada was found guilty of the charges preferred against him, adding that he had been assassinating the character of the state governor and party executives.
The party said they had to act fast to suspend the lawmaker because his actions “may instigate chaos and turmoil in the state, which may disrupt and derail the positive mission of the governor.”
The APC said it acted on the basis of the petition written against the legislator by APC supporters in his Sharada ward, adding that it set up a seven-member disciplinary committee which investigated the petition and came up with its findings asserting his wrongdoings. The suspension letter was copied to President Muhammed Buhari, Governor Abdullahi Ganduje and Speaker of the House of Representatives, among others.
