The former governor of Gombe State, Danjuma Goje, has been expelled from the All Progressives Congress. Danjuma Goje is currently a Senator representing Gombe-Central senatorial district.
The Gombe state chapter of the APC announced today that he was expelled for anti-party activities. According to the state chairman of the party; “Having gone through the rigours of campaigns and the 2015 general elections, some of our members, led by Senator Danjuma Goje, have decided to have parallel state executives of the party.
“Secondly, one of our senators representing Gombe-South, Danjuma Goje, is grossly involved in anti-party activities and we have, therefore, decided to expel him from the party from the first day of July, 2015, to instill discipline in our great party.”
It is unclear whether this expulsion will lead to a court action asking Danjuma Goje to vacate his senatorial seat.
