Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Police Affairs, Hon. Usman Kumo, has vowed to challenge the suspension notice issued him by his Kumo East Ward executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Akko Local Government of Gombe state.
The lawmaker in a statement on Thursday however blamed Senator Mohammed Danjuma Goje as being behind the purported suspension, stating, “no amount of mudslinging and deliberate attempt to frustrate my laudable efforts to better my constituents will prevail.”
The statement reads; “To this end I am going to court to challenge the suspension because all the allegations are spurious and none can stand the test of time.
“Can you imagine that one of the allegations is that I bought a car for my constituent, how could this be described as anti-party?
“I have never done anything against my party’s principles or carried out any act of violence against my party as alleged in the purported suspension notice cooked by Senator Goje and his hatchet men.
“I have concrete information that the mastermind behind this plot to rubbish me is my former Governor, Senator Goje, a man I have remained loyal to in all my political sojourn.
“The committee also alleged that I exhibited acts of indiscipline, against who I don’t know because all the allegations were concocted and script written by my former principal.
“Procedural, the ward failed as it has no right to write straight to the national chairman of the party, it ought to have gone through the local government and zonal office, instead it chose to violate all procedures”, adding that the signatures on the said suspension notice were falsified.
