Borno APC Suspending Me, Five Months After I Formally Resigned – Hon. Kumalia 


Former Minority Leader in the House of Representatives, Hon Mohammed Kumalia on Tuesday accused leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC), Limanti Ward, Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC), Borno State of embarking on a wild goose chase by issuing him a purported suspension letter five months after he duly and formally resigned from the Party.

Accordingly, Kumalia dismissed the purported suspension as the work of an unserious party executives that do not even known the name of the Party they claim to lead.

The former member of the House of Representatives, said that instead of strengthening the party ahead the 2023 General Elections, the leadership of the APC prefer to carry out a hatchet job and rushing to the social media to display their uncoordinated evil plot which he noted has fallen flat on its face.

Kumalia explicitly said that he resigned from the APC on March 21, 2022, stressing that he copiously copied his resignation letter to the Maiduguri Metropolitan Council (MMC) chapter of the APC where he belonged as well as the Borno State chairman of the party.

According to Kumalia; “The name of the party as contained on the letter written to me is not correct. The name of the party which I resigned from on 21 March 2022, is All Progressives Congress and not All Progressive Congress.

“This raises the question whether this letter is really authentic and if it is, then it is obviously a hatchet job carried out to achieve a predetermined evil plot against me. Whatever the intentions are, it has obviously fallen flat on its face,” he said.

The former lawmaker said that the court case referred to in the purported suspension letter was a class action filed by a group of aggrieved governorship aspirants who felt cheated during the 2019 primary elections.

Kumalia therefore expressed surprised as to why he was singled out for a purported suspension, stressing that it was even more surprising that the leadership of the party only realized three years later that what happened in 2019 was an offence, and the purported punishment coming down the line now.

He further said; “This betrays some concealed motive beyond what you would like members of the public to know, but they are more discerning than you would like to credit them with”.

Kumalia, who attached his resignation letter dated March 21, 2022 to the statement he issued in reaction to his purported suspension by the Borno APC, advised the party leaders to put their house in order saying that the Borno State chapter of the APC is currently bedevilled with a crisis of confidence at the levels of both the party and the state government.
