APC Disregards Court Order Restraining National Chairman Ganduje, Alleges Fraud

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared its refusal to comply with a court order restraining the National Chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje, from participating as a party member, citing fraudulent acquisition of the order.

The decision follows an ex parte order granted by a Kano State High Court, which directed Ganduje to cease his involvement in the party’s affairs, including presiding over the National Working Committee (NWC).

The court order stemmed from an application filed by two executive members of Ganduje’s ward, Dawakin-Tofa Local Government Area, who sought Ganduje’s suspension. However, the APC’s National Working Committee denounced the order, labeling it unlawful and pledging non-compliance.

Speaking to journalists after a meeting between Ganduje and his ward executives, the National Legal Adviser of the APC, Prof Abdulkareem Kana, asserted that the order was unlawfully obtained without proper notification to the party.

Kana highlighted the party’s grievances, emphasizing that they had lodged complaints with law enforcement agencies and intended to pursue further action against those responsible for the order’s procurement.

The APC expressed suspicion over the authenticity of the order, alleging fraudulent documentation and manipulation. In response, the party declared its refusal to recognize, respect, or adhere to any orders resulting from such fraudulent means.

Moreover, the APC announced plans for its Ganduje Ward executives to lodge a petition with the National Judicial Council against the judge who issued the order, reiterating their disassociation from the individuals involved in obtaining the order.
