APC Kaduna State Suspends Women Leader for Criticizing Governor’s Debt Remarks

The Kaduna State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended its Women Leader, Maryam Suleiman, following her criticism of Governor Uba Sani over the state’s inherited debt from the previous administration. The party cited allegations of gross misconduct as the basis for Suleiman’s suspension.

In a suspension notice dated March 31 and signed by the APC Chairman and Secretary of Badarawa/Malali ward, the party accused Suleiman of actions that tarnished the governor’s reputation. The suspension letter further alleged her involvement in orchestrating an attack on the governor’s political adviser, Manzo Maigari, by purported thugs.

Citing a violation of Article 21, 2 (v) of the APC constitution, the party announced an indefinite suspension pending a thorough investigation into the allegations against Suleiman.

Governor Uba Sani had recently lamented the substantial debt inherited from his predecessor, Nasir El-Rufai, during a Town Hall Meeting. He disclosed the state’s financial challenges, including debts totaling $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities, inherited from the previous administration.

In response to the governor’s remarks, Maryam Suleiman criticized Sani in a viral video, accusing him of mismanagement and admonishing him to take responsibility for his administration’s failures instead of attributing them to El-Rufai.
