APC: Ganduje ward, LG exco deny suspending national chair

The 27-man executives that formed the leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ganduje ward of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano state led by the Chairman, Ahmed Mohammed Koko, have distanced themselves from the suspension of the party National Chairman.

At a joint press conference by the APC Ganduje ward executives and Dawakin Tofa Local Government executive committee members, the Chairman said the purported suspension of the National Chairman of the party was unfortunate by non-APC members in the ward.

He said, “Those who addressed the press conference were sponsored by the NNPP state government, and from the record of the party at the ward, local government and state, are not card-carrying members of the APC”.

Ahmed Mohammed Koko, therefore, said “the purported suspension was null and void, and would have no effect on the National Chairman.”

He further said: “The ward and local government executives having identified the persons involved in this unfortunate situation, have already prepared to charge them to court for Impersonation and calculated attempts to embarrass and dent the image of the Party and that of the National Chairman.”

Koko, therefore, called on all party members to disregard the purported suspension and remain calm.

Speaking shortly after the press conference, the legal adviser of the ward, Haladu Gwanjo Ganduje accused the group of impersonating him and an attempt to drag him into the issue.

“I was impersonated. I don’t know anything about this but only to hear about it over the news. This is an attempt to drag me into the trouble but God is watching. 

“I will allow this and will surely seek legal action against my impersonators,” Gwanjo pointed out.
