The Ganduje Ward Executive Committee and the Dawakin Tofa Local Government Executive Committee have strongly condemned the alleged suspension of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje.

Ganduje Ward in Kano State’s Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area has suspended the APC chief.

However, in a joint news conference on the same day, Ganduje Ward Chairman Ahmed Koko stated: “Those who addressed the press conference were sponsored by the NNPP state government, and from the records of the party at the ward, local government, and state, are not card-carrying members of the APC.”

Koko claimed that the alleged suspension had no legitimacy.

“The purported suspension was null and void, and would have no any effect on the national chairman,” he told reporters.

Furthermore, he announced the committee’s intent to pursue legal action against the individuals involved, stating, “The Ward and Local Government Executives, having identified the persons involved in this unfortunate situation, have already prepared to charge them to court for impersonation and calculated attempt to embarrass and dent the image of the Party and that of the National Chairman.”

Appealing for calm among party members, Koko said, “We call on all Party members to disregard the purported suspension and remain calm.”

Led by Haruna Gwanjo, the ward executives had suspended Ganduje over allegations of corruption.

Gwanjo said that Kano’s former governor must clear his name of corruption allegations regarding his long-standing dollar case.
