The All Progressives Congress on Monday throught a letter summoned Abdulmumuni Jibrin, former chairman of the House Committee on Appropriation and member of the party to appear before a disciplinary committee at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja.In the letter, dated August 1, 2016, and signed by the party’s Deputy National Chairman for the Northern Zone, Lawal Shuaibu, the APC expressed cautioned Mr. Jibrin’s over his media campaign against the Speaker of the House, Yakubu Dogara, and other principal officers over allegation of budget fraud.
In the letter, the ruling party also said all attempts to reach Mr. Jibrin by telephone calls and text messages were unsuccessful, leaving the party with no choice than to write to him.
Part of the letter reads; “To say the least, it is absolutely unacceptable to resort to media war as a means of settling scores without recourse to and/or exhausting the party’s internal dispute resolution mechanism,”.
The letter also said the Kano lawmaker’s action underscored a blatant disregard for party supremacy and its existing dispute resolution mechanism, adding that it would work to ensure that it instilled discipline on all members.
The party, therefore, reiterated its notice for Mr. Jibrin to appear before the party urging him to be guided accordingly as he digested the content of the letter.
