….Ask court to restrain ex-Kano gov from parading himself as chairman

ABUJA – There appears to be more crisis on the path of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Ganduje, as a fresh suit has been filed at an Abuja High Court, seeking his removal from office.

Recently, Ganduje was suspended from his ward in Kano, although the matter is currently before the Court of Appeal, his fate however would only be determined by the Supreme Court, being the final court in the country.

Unlike the earlier suit, this fresh suit filed on May 3, came from some aggrieved members of the APC in the North Central geopolitical zone, who felt shortchanged with the appointment of Ganduje from the Northwest. Ganduje, APC, the National Executive Committee (NEC) and the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC are 1st to 4th defendants respectively, in the suit marked: CV/2258/2024.

The plaintiff, a former chairmanship aspirant from Nasarawa, Mohammed Etsu, claimed Ganduje’s emergence as chairman of the APC last year was done in violation of agreement reached at the party’s national convention in 2022, wherein the office of the chairman was zoned to North Central.He argued that following the resignation of former Governor Abdullahi Adamu last year as chairman of the party, his successor ought to have come from the North Central zone.

In the affidavit he deposed to in support of the suit, Etsu submitted that, “The emergence of Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje is blatantly a violation of the APC Constitution.”He alleged that the NEC and NWC “in their desperation and frenzy to impose Ganduje on the APC on August 3, 2023, failed to comply with the procedure stipulated in the APC Constitution for the replacement of a National/Zonal Officer in the event of a vacancy.”No date has been fixed for hearing.

Meanwhile aggrieved members of the APC under the platform of Concerned North Central APC Stakeholders, had in a letter signed by Muhammed Saidu Etsu, Gbenga Lubem you AbdulGaniyu Lukman, Bagu Bung Jung, Isa Abubakar Imam, and Mohammed Kabiru Idris, stated that the APC North Central, had resolved to unanimously agitate for their rights and reclaim their mandate.(ThisDay).
