Dr Babayo Misau
Dr Babayo Misau, the Bauchi State chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has been dismissed from the party by the executive council of the party in Kukadi/Gundari Ward in Misau Local Government Area for alleged anti-party activities.
Announcing the expulsion of the state chairman, the ward secretary, Aliyu Hassan Adamu, said the decision to expel the chairman was taken at a meeting of the party in the ward. The decision, he also stated, had since been communicated to the party at the local government level.
Adamu alleged that Babayo Misau did not campaign for any APC candidates in the recently held general election in the state, adding that the state chairman was conspicuously absent at all their congresses and meetings throughout the campaign period.
“We, the executives of Kukadi/Gundari Ward in Misau Local Government Area of Bauchi State have agreed to expel Babayo Misau, the state APC chairman from the membership of the party in Misau LGA because of acts of disloyalty and betrayal to our great party.
“In his capacity as chairman of the APC in the state, he neither campaigned nor voted for our governorship candidate during the period of the campaign.
“He was caught red-handed displaying his voters sheet where he did not vote for the party governorship candidate, rather, he voted for the candidate contesting the state assembly election,” Adamu said.
He further alleged that the chairman even went as far as discouraging the electorate from voting for the party during the general election, saying that, “we consider this as a great distrust to our party, therefore he is not fit to be a member of the party in Misau LGA.”
