The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Mashi Council of Katsina State has threatened to recall a member of the House of Representatives representing Mashi/Dutsi Federal Constituency, Mansur Mashi, over comments he allegedly made against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Chairman of the party in Mashi Council, Armaya’u Doka, at a press conference, called on the reps member to retract the comment or face recall.
“The honourable said ‘Buhari had to leave the scene the way the late (late ex-president) Yar’Adua did,’ so that his vice, Yemi Osinbajo, would take over, and that such is the only way Nigeria could make progress at before 2023.
“The audio of what the lawmaker said is out there for all to listen to. By the grace of God, APC will win in the 2023 general elections and the party will continue to grow stronger in followership.
“We call on the APC at the state and national level to call him to order and the National Assembly (to) suspend him for making such comments.
“If our call is not heeded to, we, as members of his constituency, have the right to take necessary action that is within the law,” Doka said at a press conference.
”The lawmaker likened the APC to a football team that had lost followership.
“He said that our great party, the APC is like a football team, Barcelona and Madrid. Once the match is over everyone goes his way. That APC may not win in the next general elections.
“Another thing that worries me most is describing us his constituents, who voted him into office, as illiterates and ‘ignorants’. This is a member that does not even have a constituency office. He never comes back to see his people,” Doka added.
