Barrister Gua’ar, according to the party in a letter dated 22nd February, 2019, was suspended for alleged anti-party activities during the last elections and disobedience to party leadership.

This is due to your refusal/disobedient to abide by the party’s directive within the stipulated time frame. Sequel to this, I hereby notify you of your suspension from the party until further notice,” the party said in a letter signed by the party’s chairman in the local government, Alhaji Abdullahi Kwana.
