With the suspension of the APC’s candidate for governor, Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, due to suspected anti-party conduct approximately a week before the election, the problem in the Taraba State chapter has gotten worse.
As a result, the party warned Bwacha that he would “face severe repercussions” if he didn’t “stop the related illegal activities (campaign) and come before the fact-finding committee on March 13, 2023 to answer the allegations filed against him in a petition.”
Yet when asked for comment on the situation, Bwacha responded, “False news. The signatories are not APC ward representatives. Please confirm with the party once more. It was created by primaries losers who were desperate.
The Middle Belt Times on Sunday was able to receive the letter that contained his suspension, which was dated March 8 and signed by all of the APC’s Mararaba, Donga Local Government ward executives.
The choice was made shortly after a contentious ruling by the Federal High Court ordering the independent National Electoral Commission to recognize Bwacha as the APC’s candidate for governor of Taraba State.
