APC Affirms Abdullahi Ganduje as National Chairman, Disregards Suspension Order

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asserted that Abdullahi Ganduje, the former governor of Kano State, remains the national chairman of the party, dismissing his purported suspension.

Felix Morka, the National Publicity Secretary, emphasized this stance during an interview on Arise Television. He stated that the party would not recognize the initial court order affirming Ganduje’s suspension as national chairman, noting that Ganduje had not been served any summons regarding the order.

Morka clarified that the party supported the recent ruling by a Kano Federal High Court, which called for a stay of the suspension order. He highlighted that the court’s decision was based on the recognition that those behind Ganduje’s suspension were not recognized members of the party.

The Federal High Court, presided over by Justice A.M Liman, halted Ganduje’s purported suspension after he filed an ex parte motion seeking to enforce his fundamental right to a fair hearing. The court ruled in favor of Ganduje, considering the respondents in the application to be non-recognized members of the party.

Morka criticized the initial court order, stating concerns about its issuance on an ex parte basis without proper consideration for fair hearing. He emphasized that the APC had not been officially served with the order, casting doubt on its legal validity.
