The caretaker committee, through its secretary, Sen. John James Akpanudodehe, had on Monday, warned Marafa to submit to party supremacy or be sanctioned.

But reacting to the threat, Marafa in a statement on Wednesday explained that he cannot be silenced by the threat of the caretaker committee.

He further explained, “Expelling me from the party will only aggravate the problem. It will herald the beginning of the agitation; rule of law must be respected.”

He added that the committee is illegal and alien to the constitution of the party, stressing that the party is building everything on nothing.

Rather than the expulsion threat, he observed that the committee or the chairman should respond to he raised.

Senator Marafa stated that the function of the Mai Mala committee is to plan a convention just as its name implies, adding that Mai Mala is the chairman of the APC convention planning committee and not APC itself.
