The All Progressive Congress (APC) in Katsina State, on Thursday said it would investigate the circumstances that led to the suspension of a member of the House of Representatives, Babangida Ibrahim from the party.
Alhaji Bala Abubakar, Zonal Vice Chairman of the party in the state, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Funtua that since the member was not expelled from the party, “there are windows still open for reconciliation according party guidelines.”
NAN reports that Ibrahim, who is the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Finance, was suspended on Tuesday by the APC local chapters in Malumfashi and Kafur Local Government Areas.
The vice chairman said the party would investigate the grounds of complaints and resolve the issues, where possible.
Abubakar assured that the suspended member would be given fair hearing and “justice will be done on the issue.”
He therefore appealed to party loyalists in the area to remain calm and refrain from any act capable of breeding disharmony among members.
According to him, misunderstandings are normal in politics and when satisfactorily resolved, help strengthen the party.
NAN recalls that, Ibrahim, who represents Malumfashi/Kafur Federal Constituency was suspended over alleged unsavoury comments against the party leadership, poor representation and failure to attend party meetings.
He had since denied the allegations, claiming that he was not given the chance to defend himself.
