A Kano State High Court has affirmed the suspension of the national chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje as member of the party.

The court presided over by Justice Usman Malam Na’abba on Tuesday affirmed the suspension following an exparte motion filed by Dr. Ibrahim Sa’ad, Esq, on behalf of two executive members from Ganduje ward, in Dawakin-Tofa Local Government Area. The members are the assistant secretary, Laminu Sani, and legal adviser, Haladu Gwanjo (plaintiffs) who were part of the nine-ward executive members who suspended Abdullahi Ganduje two days ago.

The plaintiffs, who identified as executive members of APC in Ganduje ward, said they brought the motion on behalf of the executive members of the ward.

Gwanjo, who identified himself as the party’s ward legal adviser, was the one that announced the suspension of Ganduje two days ago.

Subsequently, the court ordered, that henceforth, Ganduje should desist from presiding over all affairs of the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC.
