A fresh leadership crisis has hit the Bauchi State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress as the State Working Committee of the party on Thursday passed a vote of no-confidence on the embattled Chairman, Babayo Aliyu Misau.
27 out of the 37 members of State Working Committee passed the vote of no confidence at an emergency meeting that held at the secretariat of the party. The 27 members consequently announced his removal as the Chairman and replaced him with the Deputy Chairman, Mohammed Hassan Tilde in line with the Constitution of the party.
The State Legal Adviser Rabiu Garba made the announcement while briefing Journalists at the State Secretariat of the APC on Thursday.
“Babayo Aliyu has failed as Chairman, we are therefore left with no option but to pass a vote of no confidence on him so that we can move ahead as a political party”
“As you can see, 27 out of 37 members of the State Working Committee are here, we discussed the lingering leadership situation in the party and agreed to remove Babayo Aliyu Misau as the Chairman. Therefore, from now, he has ceased to be the Chairman” he said
He stated that the former Chairman was called to order on several occasions but he refused to change, leading the party contrary to the guidelines and constitution of the party.
The Legal Adviser said that the decision has been communicated to the National Secretariat of APC in Abuja as well as the National Chairman, Umar Ganduje.
In his acceptance, Mohammed Hassan Tilde described the development as necessary considering the fact that the APC under Babayo Aliyu Misau was fast losing relevance since the conclusion of the 2023 General elections.
