APC crisis: I’m still in charge — Ganduje boasts

Africa-Press – Nigeria. Former governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Ganduje, says he remains the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, following the reversal of his purported suspension by his ward executives.

Justice A. M Liman of the Federal High Court in Kano stopped Ganduje’s suspension on Thursday.

The court also barred all the respondents and their agents from implementing the decisions reached at the executive meeting of the APC held at the Ganduje Ward of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area on April 15 2024, pending the determination and hearing of a suit filed by Ganduje for the enforcement of his fundamental rights.

The judge also asked the parties to maintain the status quo before the purported emergency meeting of the alleged executive members of the APC ward.

Justice Liman gave the order while ruling on a motion ex parte filed by Ganduje for the enforcement of his fundamental right to fair hearing.

While reacting to the development, Ganduje appreciated the party executive members and ward officials from Ganduje Ward for distancing themselves from the purported plot to remove him from the party’s leadership and membership.

He attributed the development to the plan of Governor Abba Yusuf of the New Nigeria Peoples Party, NNPP, to weaken the APC in the state ahead of the 2027 general election and other electoral contests.

The APC national chairman said, “In fact, what is happening is that it is an incursion into our political party by the NNPP government of Kano in order to destroy our party.

“They are so concerned that in their first year in office, they have seen their failures right from the destruction of the economy of Kano State to increased political violence in and also destruction of political morality in Kano State.”
