Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje

Court blocks the suspension of APC national chairman, Ganduje of the ruling party.

His suspension, announced by his local ward executives over bribery allegations, was deemed null and void by the APC.

Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the former governor of Kano State and current National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has successfully obtained a court order to prevent his suspension from the ruling party.

VerseNews reports that Ganduje’s suspension was initially announced by the executive members of his ward in the Dawakin-Tofa local government area of Kano State, citing allegations of bribery and misconduct during his tenure as governor.

The legal adviser of Ganduje Ward, Haladu Gwanjo, accused him of gross misconduct and misappropriation of public funds over his eight years in office.

In response to the suspension, Ganduje took legal action and secured an ex parte order from the Federal High Court in Kano, stopping his suspension and allowing him to continue presiding over the National Working Committee of the APC.

Justice Usman Na’abba of the Kano State High Court initially granted an order restraining Ganduje from parading himself as the National Chairman of APC and participating in party affairs.

However, Ganduje filed a counter-motion on April 16, 2024, and secured a favorable ruling on April 17, 2024.

Ganduje in the application pleaded for an order of the “Honourable Court restraining all the Respondents, their servants, agents or privies from Implementing and or given effect to the purported decision reached during the purported emergency meeting of the alleged Executive members of APC Ganduje Ward, held at Ganduje Ward of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State on the 15th April, 2024 pending the hearing and determination of the substantive application for the enforcement of fundamental rights of the Applicant.

“An order mandating all the parties to maintain status quo before the purported emergency meeting of the alleged Executive members of APC Ganduje Ward, and to stay all action in respect of this matter pending the hearing and determination of the substantive application.”

Granting Ganduje’s prayers, Justice Liman stated, “After reading the affidavit in support of Motion sworn to by Sulaiman A. Sulaiman, Adult, Male, Muslim, and a Nigerian Citizen of No. 38 Bargery Road, Kano, and filed at the Court Registry.

“And after hearing Jazuli Mustapha Esq. with Hadiza Nasir Ahmad Esq. move in terms of the Motion Paper, it is hereby ordered as follows:
