A Kano State High Court has affirmed the suspension of the former governor and current national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

The order is sequel to an exparte motion filed by Haladu Gwanjo and Laminu Sani through their counsel Ibrahim Sa’ad.

Justice Usman Mallam Na’Abba granted the exparte order on Wednesday, April 17.

The court also restrained Ganduje from further parading himself as a member of the party.

The plaintiffs, who identified as executive members of APC Ganduje ward, said they brought the motion on behalf of the executive members of the ward.

Recall that Gwanjo, who identified as the party’s ward Legal Adviser, had announced the suspension of Ganduje on Monday.

Subsequently, the court ordered, Ganduje should desist from presiding over all affairs of the National Working Committee (NWC) of APC.

Meanwhile, the APC says it has petitioned the Inspector General of Police over Ganduje’s purported suspension.
