“The party regretted that Abdulkadir has continued to romance and openly work for the opposition party, rather than his supposed party, the APC.
“Leaders of the party have, therefore, called on the national leadership of the APC to urgently do the needful, take all the necessary steps to remove Abdulkadir from office,” he said.
