According to the angry youths, the Constituency Chairman, Youth Organizer, Organizer, Communication Director, and Women Organizer were said to have campaigned against Hajia Zuweira Ibrahimah (MP) during the 2020 elections.
Meanwhile, the affected persons have vowed to appeal the decision by the Regional Disciplinary Committee citing unfairly judgment.
