Kano APC voids Ganduje’s suspension, sanctions ward leaders


The State Working Committee of the Kano chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has sanctioned some ward party leaders who earlier suspended the national chairman of the party, Umar Abdullahi Ganduje.

Leaders in Ganduje ward in Dawakin Tofa Local Government had on Monday suspended the APC national chairman.


However, in a quick counter, the party’s local government officials thwarted the suspension and sacked those behind it.


The APC Dawakin Tofa Local Government chairman, Inusa Dawanau, told newsmen that those behind the suspension of the national chairman were caught in anti-party activities, adding that their records of meetings with the opposition were exposed.

Adopting the suspension of the ward APC leaders, the state working committee of the party said they have sanctioned the perpetrators for six months, saying that a special investigations panel has been set up to verify several allegations against them.

The Kano APC chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, said the decisions of the LG party leaders have since been adopted.


He said: “We have evidence of meetings between the state government officials and those that suspended the National Chairman. The state working committee has agreed to sanction them for six months and they stand now suspended.”


However, one of the accused party men against Ganduje, Halliru Gwanjo said they decided to suspend him from the party due to the allegations levelled against him by the Kano state government on bribery.
