The caretaker committee of the APC in Gombe State has said that Sen. Muhammad Danjuma Goje is the only obstacle to the progress of the party in the state.
Chairman of the committee, Captain Bala Jibrin, disclosed this to newsmen in Gombe after a stakeholders’ meeting with the chairmanship and councillorship candidates of the party, ahead of the February 25 local government elections.
The national headquarters of the APC had last year disbanded officials of the party in Gombe State and inaugurated a caretaker committee.
Captain Jibrin said Sen. Goje was the only problem in the party because he always insisted that things must be done his way.
He also accused Sen. Goje of sending political thugs to harass him during the meeting in an effort to scuttle the gathering.
Our correspondent reports that Captain Jibrin was physically assaulted by some youths before the commencement of the meeting, and that it took the intervention of security personnel to bring the situation under control.
“We have no problem with those who came into the party from the PDP. I will say the only stumbling block to APC in Gombe State is Sen. Muhammad Danjuma Goje.
“In my opinion, he wants to scuttle the whole thing,” he said.
Sen. Goje could not be reached before filing this story.
