The members which are up to 30 in number in a letter of complaint which was signed by state, local government party executives and addressed to the party’s National Vice Chairman (North-West), as well as the state chairman of the party and governor, accused the chairman of distorting the leadership structure and failing to call meetings.
According to the members they accused the chairman of “Single-handedly changing the mandate and signatures of the account without the consent or approval of the executive committee in apparent breach of Article 23 of the constitution”.
The letter of complaint was signed by the State treasurer, Alhaji Musa Abubakar Danmaliki; chairman of APC Elders, Alhaji Sani Zauro; financial secretary, Aliyu Bature; assistant financial secretary, Umar Bagudu; Public Relations Officer, Alhaji Sani Dododo; Assistant PRO Garba Bakanke; auditor, Muhammad Arzika; and assistant auditor, Isah Ibrahim.
It also stated thus; “We also regret to bring to your notice that all the monies sent by the national headquarters which were for the state chapter were not collected or remitted to the financial secretary as provided by the constitution. No approval was ever sought by the chairman to spend party funds and this is to show serious mismanagement, an act which cannot be condoned”.
