The Taraba governorship candidate for the All Progressive Congress (APC), Senator Emmanuel Bwacha is currently in the face of the storm and the national chairman of his party, Abdullahi Adamu doesn’t seem to be coming for him.
The Taraba Chapter of the APC suspended Sen Emmanuel Bwacha from the party yesterday for anti-party activities regarding his candidacy in the election.
His suspension which was contained in a letter dated March 8 and signed by all the Mararaba, Donga Local Government ward executives of the APC, was obtained by our correspondent on Sunday.
The decision came on the heels of another contentious Federal High Court judgment which ordered the independent National Electoral Commission to recognize Bwacha as the governorship candidate of APC in Taraba State.

The suspension letter reads, “The Ward Executives of APC in Mararraba Ward, are in receipt of a petition dated February 22 2023 bordering on series of complaints levied against you (Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha) on various acts of indiscipline, misconduct, and for all intent and purposes pursuant to Article 21 of the APC constitution as follows:
(1.) Complaints on various acts of indiscipline, misconduct and insubordination of (sic) the chairman of APC Donga Local Government, Hon. Habu Abdul Rahman as per the judgment of the Federal High Court in Suit No. FHC/CS/13/2022.
(2.) Disobedience to the Supreme Court judgment delivered in the case of CHIEF David Sabo Kente Vs Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha on February 1 2023, and infraction on the Electoral Act 2022 and Article 21(ix) of the APC constitution 2022.
(3.) Other infamous conducts capable of bringing the party into hatred, ridicule and disrepute, contrary to Article 21 (ii) of the party’s constitution.
“The party is dissatisfied with your erring conducts; disobedience to the Supreme Court judgment, infraction on the Electoral Act, and infamous conducts capable of bringing the party into hatred, ridicule and disrepute.
After the suspension, Emmanuel Bwacha has tried every means to meet the APC National chairman to intervene in his matter but all efforts have proven abortive.
Reports also have it that the national chairman is in support of the suspension, making it difficult for Bwacha to be helped.
