The Ganduje ward chapter of All progressives Congress (APC) in Dawakin Tofa Local Government area in Kano state has suspended the party’s National Chairman and former governor of the state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The party’s legal adviser of the Ganduje ward, Halliru Gwanjo announced the suspension at a Press Conference in Kano on Monday.

Gwanjo said they decided to suspend the Ganduje  from the party at the ward level due to the allegations of corruptions against him by the state government.

According to Gwanjo,  the suspension begins from today, April 15, until when he is cleared of the corruption allegations.

9 executives members of the party signed the suspension notice at the ward level.

Kano state government had recently dragged Ganduje to court over allegations of bribery and would be arraigned on April 17.

When contacted, the Chairman of APC, Kano state Chapter, Abdullahi Abbas said the party, at the Local Government level, had taken decisive action against the purported suspension of Mr Ganduje.

In a swift reaction, Abbas told newsmen in a telephone interview that the chairman of the party in Dawakin-Tofa, Mr Ganduje’s hometown, told him that those behind the purported suspension had been caught in anti-party activities with their records of meetings with opposition exposed.

The chairman said the State Working Committee had already suspended those behind Mr Ganduje’s suspension for six months, disclosing that a special investigation panel had been set up to verify several allegations against them.

“We at the state level, have since adopted the decisions of the Local Government Party leadership, and they we have commenced investigation into the allegations of anti-party activities against them.

“We have evidence of meetings between the State Government officials and those that suspended the National Chairman, and state working committee has agreed to sanction them for six months and they stand for now suspended”.
