BREAKING: APC Expels Former Gombe Governor, Danjuma Goje


The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kashere Ward of Akko local government area of Gombe State, has expelled Danjuma Goje, a former governor of the state and senator representing Gombe Central in the National Assembly, over alleged anti-party activities.

The Kashere ward level had recently constituted a panel to probe the alleged anti-party activities of the Senator and former governor of the State, during the just-concluded 2023 elections.

Addressing journalists in Kashere, the APC Ward chairman, Tanimu Abdullahi, explained that the party took the unanimous decision to expel Goje after finding him guilty of anti-party activities such as his failure to attend the Gombe State APC campaign rally presided over by the national chairman of the party, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, failure to attend the presidential campaign rally in the State, which was attended by President-elect and vice president-elect.

Abdullahi added that the Senator was also accused of boycotting all campaign tours of the party in his Central senatorial zone, Akko federal constituency, State constituency and ward units.

“The committee also deliberated on the allegations against Goje of hobnobbing with opposition parties and their candidates with the intent to undermine the success of the APC in Gombe State and Nigeria in general.

“Open support to opposition party candidates by hosting the NNPP gubernatorial candidate and the PDP Akko Federal House of Representatives candidate in his residence and offered support against the interest of his party, the APC, among many other instances,” he added.

Abdullahi further stated that other offences committed by Senator Goje included “making pronouncements that undermined the APC administration in the state and sponsoring campaign of calumny with the intention of inciting the public against the APC administration in the state.

“Giving clear directives to his associates and proteges to work against the interest of the APC in Gombe State by ensuring only Senator Goje is elected on the APC platform (Using the Goje Kawai slogan) while working towards the defeat of other APC candidates at all levels.

“That the executive council of the All Progressives Congress in Kashere ward has decided to expel Senator Muhammadu Danjuma Goje from the All Progressives Congress for his numerous anti-party activities that are in breach of Article 21, Section A, subsections ii, iii, vi and vii of the APC constitution.”
