Leadership of APC Kashere Ward Expel Senator Danjuma Goje from the Party

By Abdulwahab Muhammad, Bauchi 

Following the various petitions on alleged anti-party activities against Senator Muhammadu Danjuma Goje, senator representing Gombe Central district at the national assembly, the leadership of the APC at Kashere Ward, of Akko local government Gombe state , in line with existing party regulations, constituted a committee on 22nd March 2023 with the mandate to investigate the alleged infractions against the senator and recommend appropriate sanctions.

The Committee, immediately swang into action, by serving a notice of invitation to Senator Goje to answer the charges against him in the spirit of fair hearing. 

In the course of its investigations, the committee has deliberated on the following allegations against Senator Goje:

i. Failure to attend the flag-off of the Gombe State APC campaign rally in Gombe which was performed by the National Chairman of our great party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu
ii. Failure to attend the Asiwaju-Kashim presidential rally in Gombe State which was attended by the President-elect Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his VP-elect Senator Kashim Shettima

iii. Failure to attend all APC campaign rallies and tours in Gombe State, including the one in his own Gombe Central senatorial zone, Akko Federal constituency, state assembly and ward unit

iv. Hobnobbing with opposition parties and their candidates with the intent to undermine the success of the APC in Gombe State and Nigeria in general

v. Open support to opposition party candidates by hosting the NNPP Gubernatorial candidate and the PDP Akko Federal House of Representatives Candidate in his residence and offered support against the interest of his party the APC among many other instances

vi. Making unguarded utterances and pronouncements capable of undermining the APC administration in Gombe State.

vii. Sponsoring campaign of calumny (directly and through proxies) with the intention of inciting the people against the APC administration in Gombe State

viii. Giving clear directives to his associates and proteges to work against the interest of the APC in Gombe State by ensuring only Senator Goje is elected on the APC platform (using the Goje Kawai slogan) while working towards the defeat of other APC candidates at all levels

ix. Clear anti-party activities during the last presidential, national assembly, gubernatorial and state assembly elections in which Senator Goje worked tirelessly for the failure of the APC in his polling unit in Kashere Ward (as shown in the Inec result sheets attached as exhibits here)

x. Use of violence and cause of bodily harm against APC polling agents in Kashere Ward (Yakubu Abdullahi, Mallam Adamu Shagori, Ibrahim Abdullahi, Babayo A Kawu, Ahmed Saleh, Dogido Baba Mai Gadi) through his known associates and allies (Ummaru Samuda, Alhaji Dahiru Ibrahim, Alhaji Hamza Wakili, and Safiyanu Dan Daura) during the 2023 general elections as shown in the exhibits attached.

The above allegations came on the backdrop of earlier allegations of anti-party activities in which Senator Goje was accused of surreptitious membership of the PDP which led to the appearance of his photo and name on the ballot papers of the PDP senatorial primary election in 2022.

The Committee, in the spirit of justice and fair hearing, invited Senator Goje to appear before it in order to respond to the allegations. Unfortunately, Senator Goje refused to honor the invitation of the committee, a conduct that was deemed unbecoming of a loyal party stalwart.

In line with the powers conferred on us by the APC constitution, and having deliberated on the findings of the committee, and in the overall interest of the All Progressives Congress in Gombe State and Nigeria at large, we the Party Executives at Kashere Ward reached the following resolutions:

i. That Senator Muhammadu Danjuma Goje is found guilty of charges (i) – (x) as listed above which are in breach of Article 21, Section A, subsection ii, iii, vi and vii of the APC constitution.

ii. That the Executive Council of the All Progressives Congress in Kashere Ward has decided to expel Senator Muhammadu Danjuma Goje from the All Progressives Congress for his numerous anti-party activities that are in breach of Article 21, Section A, subsection ii, iii, vi and vii of the APC constitution

iii. That Senator Muhammadu Danjuma Goje is no longer a member of the APC in Kashere ward, and by extension, in Gombe State and Nigeria

iv. That the Independent National Electoral Commission, the leadership of the APC at state, regional and national levels, as well as the leadership of the national assembly should take appropriate actions to comply with the decision of the APC Kashere Ward Exco

v. That any claim to the APC by Senator Goje in his dealings with any individual, group or organization is null and void

vi. The Party note with dismay the unfortunate acts of sabotage conducted by Senator Goje against the party on whose platform he was elected Senator for three consecutive terms

vii. The Party further restates its confidence in the leadership of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya who was just recently reelected for second term with overwhelming majority

viii. This decision was reached on the 18th day of April, 2022; and endorsed by the undersigned:
