The All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the suspension of the Minority Leader of the Gombe State House of Assembly, Alhaji Ahmed Usman Haruna.
Zonal Vice Chairman, Mr. Julius Ishaya disclosed this while addressing newsmen on Wednesday at the party secretariat.
The development followed the recent failed attempt by four of the eight APC members in the House to impeach Haruna after he granted a press conference denouncing the recent congresses of the party.
Ishaya said the lawmaker was suspended for six months after he was allegedly found “guilty of violating the party’s constitution by claiming that the recent congresses of the party were not held”.
The party leader stated that the minority leader’s action was anti-party, embarrassing and had brought the Gombe APC into contempt and ridicule.
Last week, the House suspended the four members for fleeing with the mace during plenary.
Abdullahi Abubakar Maiwanka (Akko-west), Walid Mohammed (Kwami-west), Mohammed A. Bello (Gombe-south) and Abubakar Sadiq Ibrahim (Yamaltu-west) were suspended for four legislative sittings.
