The Ward Chairman of Balanga Local Government Area (LGA), Mohammed Kaka, said the ward executives, after their deliberations and investigation, found Senator Amos guilty of gross misconduct against the party during the last general elections and had, therefore, expelled him.

Kaka, along with his ward executives, while addressing journalists in Bambam, said Senator Amos was called and suspended after explaining the allegations against him.

He said the Senator was also called earlier to come and defend himself over the allegation of anti-party activities levelled against him but he failed to turn up.
