National Chairman of the National Action Council (NAC) Dr Olapade Agoro on Sunday asked the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu, to disregard any correspondence on behalf of NAC from Hajiya Rabiu Yasai Cengiz Hassan, on behalf of the political party.
Speaking with newsmen in Ibadan, Dr Agoro declared that Hajiya Hassan has been removed as the NAC’ s National Secretary since July 11, 2017, and that INEC has been duly notified about her removal from the office.
The NAC’ s National Chairman, who made copies of her removal letter available to newsmen, stressed that Hadjia Hassan, who joined the political party in March this year, was only appointed to hold the office for a period of nine months.
According to Dr Agoro, Hadjia Hassan’s removal and subsequent appointment of Sir Goodluck Clement Nwachukwu from Imo state as the new National Secretary of NAC was communicated to INEC through a letter dated October 10, 2017.
He claimed that she was relieved of the office after being allegedly found grossly “incompetent to the top office of the National Secretary of our great political party.”adding
that during the period of time the former National Secretary held the office, she acted contrary to her promise to put her best and also be loyal to the political party, as reflected in her membership application form filled and signed on March 12, 2017.
The NAC National Chairman stated that apart from the INEC, the Inspector General of the Police (IGP), the Director General of the Department of State Services (DSS) and the leadership of the Inter Party Adversary Council (IPAC) were also notified about Hadjia Hassan’s removal.
Speaking further, Dr Agoro said Hadjia Hassan “has no business using NAC’s name to harrass INEC’ s boss in her quest for political relevance.”
“She should stop harassing the distinguished scholar and seasoned administrator of Professorships Yakubu’s status in the distinguished publicity seeking stunts trying to draw attention to her nobody self.”
