The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has upturned the purported suspension of Sen. Barnabas Gemade and Prof. Terhemba Shija from the party by its Benue State chapter.

A statement on Thursday, 11 May 2023 in Abuja by the National Publicity Secretary, Barr Felix Morka, disclosed that the party had set aside the suspension in Benue, hence Gemade, Shija and five others remain valid members of the party.

Morka wrote: “The attention of the National Headquarters of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been drawn to media reports of the purported suspension of Senator Barnabas Gemade, Professor Terhemba Shija, and five others by the Benue State Executive Committee of our Party.
