~Says it is inspired by greed, avarice
The chairman of APC Bako ward, in Yola South local government, Hamidu Jika Shago has debunked the rumoured suspension of the state organizing secretary of the party, Mustapha Ribadu saying that it amounts to storm in a tea cup.
Some exco of APC Bako ward have in a letter to the acting chairman of the party Samaila Tadawus announced their resolve to suspend Ribadu over alleged anti-party and other sundry misdemeanors.
But in a letter to the acting chairman of APC, Samaila Tadawus, Shago said he was neither aware of the action nor participated in it saying that the purported suspension was akin to child’s play as it contravenes the party’s statutes on disciplinary action

Re: RESOLUTION FOR THE SUSPENSION OF THE STATE ORGANISING SECRETARY OF APC, ADAMAWA STATE IN PERSON COMRADE MUSTAPHA ATIKU RIBADU.
The above subject refers.
I received the news of the purported suspension of Mustapha Atiku Ribadu, a patriotic, selfless and hardworking member of our great party with utter shock and trepidation as I’m neither aware of such purported action nor pertook in it.
I wish to use this medium to therefore disabuse the minds of the teeming APC members in Adamawa State hat no such action took place as it is in the realm of rumour since it was not a child of constitutionality.
For clarity, I wish to draw the attention of our party faithfuls that article 21.3 and article 27 of our great party stipulated the actions that must be observed before a member could be suspended such as the approval of the venue by the party leadership, letter of query to the erring member and right of fair hearing.
All these constitutional provisions are not adhered to. It is in this respect I wish to notify my respected state chairman and peace loving members of our party that no such action took place.
I also call on the party organ to disregard social media hype spreading such unfounded, fake and malicious story.
While calling on our respected leadership to beam it’s searchlight on some agents provocateurs who want to destroy our party, please accept the assurances of my highest regards.
