Honourable Abdulmumini Jibril Kofa, has described as false the report that he has been expelled from the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, for anti-party activities.
Abdulmumini in a statement on Thursday, said that his purported expulsion was carried out by ‘political antagonizers who are perpetually threatened by his advocacy for transparency in public service and political leadership’.
He added that: “This report, I’ve gathered, came from a dubious character and known fraudster who is neither the chairman of my party at the local government level nor a part of the party executive at the state level. The party is not even aware of this impersonation making the rounds in the media.
“Recall that I honoured the invitation of the EFCC in a bid to shed light on the cases of corruption perpetrated by some principal officers of the House of Representatives, despite dissuasions by these saboteurs of my party’s change agenda and stand against corruption.
“The initiators of this false claim of my expulsion by my party are hired hacks engaged by some politicians in Abuja in continuation of their futile bids to frustrate my anti-corruption campaigns.”
The budget-padding whistleblower maintained that he has a cordial relationship with his party.
The Bebeji Local Government chapter of the APC in Kano State had announced the expulsion of Hon. Abdulmumini over alleged anti-party activities.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday in Kano, the Chairman of the party in the local government, Alhaji Sani Kanti Garka, said Kofa was expelled from the party on four-count charge.
