OPINION: Suspension of Nasarawa Commissioner by APC, Possibility of a Wrong Decision

According to a story reported by the PUNCH, Nasarawa State Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Dr. Salihu Alizaga was said to have been suspended by the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

Interestingly, Dr. Salihu Alizaga has belittled the decision by the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging them that they lack the right to suspend him.

It could be recalled that All Progressives Congress (APC) is currently using caretaker Committee to manage the leadership affairs of the party across the 36 states of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Interestingly, there are a good number of power that a constituted authority could have enjoy while caretaker or an impromptu leadership arrangement can not enjoy.

Considering the above point, it can lead to legal interpretation of whether the caretaker Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has the power to suspend a member or not.

Besides, before any constituted authority can suspend or remove a registered member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the suspected member must be invited to clarify himself of whatever allegation that is registered against him.

Unfortunately, Dr. Salihu Alizaga insisted that no authority within the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called or invited him to any meeting of the party for interrogation. 

Surely, if the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has not invited Dr. Salihu Alizaga to any meeting for interrogation, his suspension is therefore faulty and may not hold.

If the Nasarawa State chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) fails to reconcile the anomaly in the wrong decision taken by the Nasarawa Eggon Local Government chapter of the ruling party, it is definitely sure that the National Caretaker Committee of the party will lift the purported suspension of Dr. Salihu Alizaga.
