The crisis in the Taraba State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has taken a worsening dimension with the suspension of its governorship candidate, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, over alleged anti-party activities about one week to the governorship election.
Consequently, the party directed him to “suspend the related illegal activities (campaign) and appear before the fact-findings committee on March 13 2023 to defend the allegations raised against him in a petition or face heavy consequences.
When contacted, Bwacha said, “Fake news. The signatories are not ward officials of APC. You (can) double-check with the party, please. It's the handwork of desperate losers in the primaries.”
His suspension which was contained in a letter dated March 8 and signed by all the Mararaba, Donga Local Government ward executives of the APC, was obtained by our correspondent on Sunday.
