“The committee will take you further on these issues and allegations and recommend appropriate sanction.
“For the avoidance of doubt, your anti-party activities contravened Article 21(1) (d), (f), (g), (k), (n) and (o) of the constitution of the APGA (2014 as amended) and so, in a situation like this, the provisions of Article 22 (1) (b) of the constitution of APGA (2014 as amended) shall apply.”
Mbaso who is from Ozubulu Ward III, Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the stats contested the House of Representatives election in the last election and waa also the chairman of APGA Aggrieved Aspirants Forum.
Though Mbaso has refuted being served any letter, it was learnt that offences levelled against him include, levelling “frivolous” allegations against the leadership of the party, just as he “has been painting the party black on social media.”
