President Bola Tinubu and the national Chairman of the ruling All Progressive Party (APC) Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje have been called upon to immediately withdraw the membership card of the party’s flagbearer for House of Representative (HoR), Kachia/ Kagarko Federal constituency, Kaduna state.

The duos are also urged to change the party’s candidate Hon. Gabriel Sale Zock, ahead of 3rd February by- election of House of Representative (HoR), for Kachia/ Kagarko Federal constituency, over involvement in alleged anti-party activities.

The call was made by group known as ‘Concerned APC Members Kaduna State’ (Kachia/Kagarko Federal constituency), in a petition statement in Kaduna signed by 7 members including Zakariya Danjuma of Gumel Ward, Agbenego Dogara of Awon Ward, Junaidu Yahaya of Kachia Urban and four others.

“Reference to the above subject matter, we the concerned APC Stakeholders in Kachia/Kagarko Federal Constituency of Kaduna State write to draw the attention of Mr. President and the National chairman of the Party, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, to the activities of the current candidate and flagbearer of the APC in the upcoming by- elections of Kachia /Kagarko Federal Constituency, Kaduna State”, they stated.

According to the APC stakeholders, the flagbearer and former Member House of Representatives, Gabriel Sale Zock, supported the Labour Party candidate during the Presidential elections.

They added that “During the last elections, his bloc and followers were advised to not support the APC Governorship candidate during the elections. He advised them to withdraw their support before and during the elections, he didn’t show up to his Constituency during the Governorship elections in March 2023.

“When he lost elections he announced his withdrawal from active politics and promised to join the Former Vice- President in private business.

“He is constantly fanning the flames of division and disloyalty to the Party faithfuls in the constituency.

“He and others have constituted a group of moles in collaboration with Members of the past administration to mudsling and attack the current Administration of Mr. President with false narratives via various media platforms.

“The above are a few of his grievous actions that are affecting the Party in the Constituency today”, they lamented.

In their prayers the group stated that “Your Excellency, following the cancellation of the House of Representatives election of Kachia /Kagarko Federal Constituency by the Court of Appeal and withdrawal of certificate by INEC from the PDP candidate elect; if the Party is to be victorious at the by – elections come 3rd February 2024, the candidate Gabriel Sale Zock has to be changed and his membership card withdrawn as a result of his antipathy activities and disloyalty to the Party.
