Ibrahim Gaidam for the April 2015 governorship polls. The case was however ruled in favour of Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam.
Apparently irked by the action of Engr. Maihaja who also made attempt to contest as governor in 2015 but was denied by the party, the party leadership in the state took their pound of flesh to expel Engr. Maihaja over what they describe as “flagrant abuse of the party constitution”.
His expulsion was contained in a statement issued and signed by the state secretary of the party, Alhaji Abubakar Bakabe together with the Acting Chairman Adamu Chilariye and made available to newsmen in Damaturu today quoted various sections of the party’s constitution to justify their action.
