Court Sets Date for Ganduje’s APC Suspension Hearing

Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman of the Federal High Court, Kano, has scheduled May 28 as the date for hearing a substantive application filed by Abdullahi Ganduje, the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), contesting his suspension from the party.
Ganduje’s suspension stems from a dispute with factional ward executives led by Basiru Nuhu Isa, sparking a legal battle within the party.
The saga began with Ganduje’s initial suspension by APC ward executives under Haladu Gwanjo on April 15.
However, the situation escalated when another faction, led by Basiru Nuhu Isa, announced Ganduje’s suspension on April 20, further complicating the matter.
In response to the second suspension, Zakari Sarina, the party’s secretary in Kano, denounced the faction’s actions, denoting it as an act of impersonation.
Seeking legal recourse, Ganduje, represented by his legal counsel, Hadiza Nasir Ahmad, argues that his suspension without a fair hearing violates his fundamental rights. He contends that the faction’s suspension is unlawful and void.
During a recent court proceeding, Ganduje’s counsel requested for service on the respondents through substituted means, a request granted by Justice Liman. As a result, the court has adjourned the matter to May 28 for a comprehensive hearing.
