Another judge halts Ganduje’s suspension from APC



The national chair of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Abdullahi Ganduje has obtained a court order halting his suspension by the party. 

The high court ruling came after Ganduje filed an ex parte motion seeking to enforce his fundamental right to fair hearing.

The respondents in the application are the police, Department of State Services (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and nine other individuals.

On April 15, APC executives in Dawakin ward, Tofa LGA of Kano, suspended Ganduje over alleged corruption charges.

Subsequently, the working committee of the APC in Kano nullified the suspension and punished the ward executives.

The court ordered that henceforth, Ganduje should desist from presiding over all affairs of the national working committee (NWC) of the APC.

But in a turn of events, Usman Na’Abba, a judge of the high court of Kano, upheld the suspension.

In the ex parte order delivered on Wednesday A.M Liman, another judge of the Kano high court, said the purported suspension should not be implemented until the case is heard and determined.

That all the parties are hereby mandated to maintain status quo before the purported emergency meeting of the alleged executive members of APC Ganduje Ward, and to stay action in respect of this matter pending the hearing and determination of the substantive application,” Liman said.

The judge subsequently fixed April 30 to hear the former governor’s appeal.
