THE All Progressives Congress (APC) has clarified that Alhaji Haddy Ameto, remains the recognised chairman of its Kogi State Working Committee.

This is as the party said only a convention can expel any of its member.

On Friday a faction of the party announced the expulsion of Ameto along with some members of the executive of the party.

But reacting, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi, on Saturday (3/3/2018) said that any disciplinary action being contemplated must be referred to the party’s National Working Committee (NWC), as stated in the party´s constitution.

“APC wishes to clarify that neither state nor zonal executives, constituted in whatever name or form, can expel anyone from the party, only convention can do so.

“We restate that the Kogi State Working Committee of APC led by the Chairman, Alhaji Haddy Ameto remains the only recognised executive committee of the party in the State,” he said in a statement while advising party members at all levels to desist from taking unilateral actions that were likely to further jeopardise its on-going peace process.
