All Progressive Congress (APC) may expel Deputy Governor of Nassarawa State, Alhaji Damishi Luka-Barau who was suspended on Monday for faulting party’s directive to lawmakers in the National Assembly to block passage of the 2014 budget as well as screening of the service chiefs until constitutionality is restored in the nation and Rivers State in particular.
Interim Chairman of the party, Mr. Standly Buba, told newsmen in Lafia, that his suspension followed a recent interview he granted journalists in Abuja condemning APC directive to the lawmakers.
“The party faulted Luka-Barau over his comment in faulting the decision of the National Executive members of the party that its members at the national assembly should not sign any bill sent by the President. Why is he as a member of the party going against the decision of the national leadership of the same party that brought him to power”, he queried.
He explained that the suspension came through the party’s supporters in Ningo ward from Akwanga local government area of the state.
Buba added that the party will set up a committee to investigate the deputy governor’s action.
“If the outcome of the committee indicts Luka-Barau, we will not have any other option, other than to expel him from the party”, he said.
