He maintained that El-Sudi since he became the Chairman of the party makes all the decisions by himself.
He stressed that his arrogant decisions are always made together with some of his stooges through whom he implements them. He further asserted that this “autocratic” structure of decision-making has caused a lot of internal divisions within the party.
He maintained that the decision has resulted in disaffection and disharmony in the state chapter of the All Progressive Congress Apc in Taraba State. This has caused a lot of tension among party members, as those who are not part of the decision-making process feel as though their voices are not being heard. Additionally, those who are part of the decision-making process may begin to feel as though they are being asked to unquestioningly submit to the decisions of the leader, leading to disaffection, mistrust, and disharmony.
“His attitude has the ridiculed Apc, disaffection, and unnecessary litigations.
Don’t forgets, a few day days ago, the Supreme Court cancel the gubernatorial primary election and some other primary elections held by the party in the state.
In large part, the issues lead to litigations which resulted from El-Sudi’s inability to reconcile and accommodate varied interests within the party.
Again, the five local government chairmen removed and replaced by El-Sudi were reinstated by the court but El-Sudi has deliberately refused to obey the judgment of the court” he said.
According to him, despite the Court ruling against El-Sudi on the removal of the five chairmen, he recently went ahead to purportedly remove two (2) chairmen of Lau and Jalingo Local Governments which was revolt and same led to serious tension which threatened security and peace within the entire APC family and support in the state.
“We, the entire Exco of Taraba state APC hereby resolved to disassociate our good selves with the unconstitutional manner of removing elected officers of the Partconcerningto the aforementioned chairmen.
In all, the conductSudi to favor some party members and disfavor some, and not to provide a level playing ground and fairness to all party members, has created widespread disaffection among the party faithful.
Given all the above infractions by El-Sudi and his retrogressive style of leadership, we passed votes of no confidence in him to continue as the Taraba State APC chairman.
We have therefore invoked the powers conferred on us by Article 21(d)(vi) of the APC Constitution and have removed him from office as the APC Chairman Taraba State” he said.
