The Gombe State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has expelled the senator representing Gombe-Central senatorial district, Danjuma Goje, from the party.
State chairman of the party, Magaji Doho, who spoke at the party’s secretariat in Gombe, said Goje was expelled with effect from July 1, 2015 for his engagement in anti-party activities.
Doho said, “Having gone through the rigours of campaigns and the 2015 general elections, some of our members, led by Senator Danjuma Goje, have decided to have parallel state executives of the party.
“Secondly, one of our senators representing Gombe-South, Danjuma Goje, is grossly involved in anti-party activities and we have, therefore, decided to expel him from the party from the first day of July, 2015, to instill discipline in our great party.”
The APC chairman said the state executive council had written a comprehensive report to the national secretariat of the party, indicting Goje.
“We have expelled Goje from the APC because of his activities, disloyalty and going contrary to the constitution of the party,” Doho added.
He also said that some members of the state executive council of the party that decided to support Goje by operating a parallel executive council were relieved of their positions but could remain as members of the party.
