Alleged Misappropriation of Funds: Kano Court Affirms Ganduje’s Suspension from APC

The Kano State High Court sitting in Kano North Western Nigeria has granted an exparte order restraining the embattled National Chairman of Nigeria’s ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Abdullahi Ganduje, from parading himself as member of the party.

The court also directed that Ganduje should henceforth desist from presiding over all affairs of the National Working Committee of the APC.

The application granted by Justice Usman Malam Na’abba on Tuesday followed an exparte motion filed by Ibrahim Sa’ad on behalf of two executive members of the party in Ganduje’s ward, Dawakin-Tofa local government area of the state.

The two executives include the assistant secretary of the Party Laminu Sani and the legal adviser Haladu Gwanjo, from part of the nine ward executives who suspended Ganduje two days ago from the party.

The court further directed that the four parties joined in the suit; the All Progressives Congress, the National Working Committee, the Kano State Working Committee and Abdullahi Ganduje, to henceforth, maintain status quo from April 15th, pending the hearing and determination of the suit.

Justice Na’abba also directed that the APC State Working Committee should stop interfering with the legally and validly considered decision of the executives of Ganduje’s ward, essentially on any action endorsed by two third majority of the executives as provided by the party’s constitution.
