The state chapter of the APC confirmed the suspension of Hon Sani after its meeting on Friday at the party headquarters in Gusau, Zamfara State.

Briefing newsmen, Yusuf Idris, the state publicity secretary, said the federal lawmaker was suspended after a fact-finding committee on anti-party activities established his role during the 2023 general elections in the state.

Hon. Sani was earlier suspended from the party by executive members of his ward and local government area of Birnin Magaji.

“The Executive Committee of the APC, Zamfara State Chapter held an emergency meeting at the State Party Secretariat, Gusau, on the 17th of May, 2024, where Hon. Jaji’s suspension matter was tabled to the members during which a report of an already constituted state fact-finding committee on Anti-Party activities established in the aftermath of the 2023 Zamfara State Governorship election was presented to the state’s committee for deliberations by members.”

He said the letter was signed by Chairman Tukur Danfulani and Secretary Ibrahim Umar Dangaladima and copied to the zonal APC vice-chairman, North West.

“Sir, it may interest you to know that the findings of that committee, as contained in its report dated 15th July 2023, equally fingered Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji and his direct involvement in Anti-Party activities and recommended for his immediate suspension from the party pending the review and deliberations by the State Disciplinary Committee and subsequent ratification by the State Executive Committee.

“Sir, the 7-Man State Disciplinary Committee also recommended his suspension from the party, having failed to appear before the committee despite several invitations given to him. Now, the State Executive Committee has reviewed the earlier findings made by the State Disciplinary Committee, agreed with its recommendations and resolved to suspend him based on the findings.

“In view of the foregoing, the Zamfara State APC Executive Committee resolved and approved the suspension of Hon. Aminu Sani Jaji from the party based on the recommendations of the State Disciplinary Committee, which were earlier made, coupled with his recent suspension by APC Birnin Magaji Ward Executive Committee and affirmed by APC Birnin Magaji Local Government Executive Committee.”
