The group, in a statement signed by Mr Mohammed Soba and made available to newsmen in Kaduna, on Sunday, said it was the height of betrayal of the people of Kaduna State and particularly the Southern Kaduna senatorial distict that stood firmly behind the PDP since 1999.

“We are aware that Mr Yakubu had planned to organise a solidarity rally for President Jonathan in Southern Kaduna senatorial district last Saturday without involving the vice-president, Kaduna State governor and the Senator representing Southern Kaduna senatorial district.

“The unceremonious removal of Mr Yakubu has exposed the contradictions within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), “No reason was adduced for Yakubu’s removal because none could be justified in view of the fact that Yakubu has one more year for his tenure to expire either by reason of reaching the mandatory 60 years of age or putting in 35 years in service.”

“The Kaduna APC Justice Forum, therefore, condemns the premature removal of Mr Yakubu, which portrays the PDP as unjust to the political solidarity and patronage it enjoys from the good people of Southern Kaduna.”

    They saying it so as to entice him to join their party so that the man can give them some of the NNPC’s money. Was he the only one removed?

    Yesterday President Jonathan refused to eat breakfast, APC viewed it as a wicked thing to do. APC says President wants to deliberately cause himself stomach ulcer so as to spend tax payers’ money on treatment. APC says it is wicked for the president to skip breakfast because he needs energy to work. That president should also desist from taking starch and banga as it will endanger the health of PDP supporters

    Must APC frown at every step the federal government takes just for the sake of criticism?
