The Kano State High Court has issued an order to stop the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Abdullahi Ganduje, from acting as a member of the party.

The court also said that Ganduje should not be involved in the activities of the National Working Committee of the APC.

This decision was made by Justice Usman Na’abba after an application was filed by Dr. Ibrahim Sa’ad on behalf of two executive members of Ganduje’s ward in Dawakin-Tofa Local Government Area.

The two members, Assistant Secretary Laminu Sani and Legal Adviser Haladu Gwanjo, were part of the nine ward executives who suspended Ganduje on Monday.

The court instructed all parties involved, including the APC, NWC, APC Kano State Working Committee, and Ganduje, to maintain the current situation until the substantive case is heard on April 30, 2024.

Justice Na’abba ruled in favor of stopping the State Working Committee of APC Kano from interfering with the decision made by the executives of Ganduje ward. The decision was legally made and valid, with the support of a two-thirds majority of the executives as required by the party’s constitution.

The ex parte order read, “An order is hereby granted directing all parties in the suit APC (first), APC National Working Committee (second), Kano State Working Committee APC (third), Dr. Abdullah Umar Ganduje (fourth), to maintain status quo ante belum as of April 15, 2024.

”The order thereby restraining the first respondent (APC) from recognising the fourth respondent (Ganduje) as a member of APC and prohibiting the fourth respondent (Ganduje) from presiding over any affairs of the NWC and restraining the state Working Committee from interfering with the legally and validly decision of the ward executives of Ganduje ward.

“That the fourth respondent (Ganduje) is prohibited from parading himself as a member of APC or doing any act that may portray him or seem to be a member of APC pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.”

Allub Times reports that nine members of the Ganduje ward suspended him over corruption allegations made against him by the Kano State Government.
