Speaking to reporters on Tuesday at the party’s zonal secretariat in Azare, the APC Ward Chairman, Sa’adu Muhammed, said the lawmaker was suspended for deserting his constituency for six months since his inauguration
Muhammed said that Bulkachuwa did not deem it fit to visit the area to commiserate with them over the outbreak of coronavirus, mass deaths, and or give any donations.
The party chairman also accused Bulkachiwa of not representing the interest of the people of Katagum on the floor of the National Assembly.
