Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman of the Federal High Court, Kano, has fixed May 28 for hearing in the substantive application filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Chairman, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Ganduje is challenging his suspension from the party by factional ward executives led by one Basiru Nuhu Isa.

He was first suspended by APC Ganduje ward executives led by one Haladu Gwanjo on April 15. Another faction emerged and also announced suspension of Ganduje on April 20.

Daily Trust reported that the secretary of the party in Kano, Zakari Sarina, said the suspension by the faction was another case of impersonation.

Ganduje is seeking a declaration that his suspension from the party without giving him opportunity to defend himself amounts to violation of his fundamental right to fair hearing.

He is also seeking a declaration that his suspension by the faction was unlawful, null and void.

Counsel for the embattled APC chairman, Hadiza Nasir Ahmad, applied for service on the respondents by substituted means which the court granted.

Justice Liman adjourned to May 28 for hearing in the matter.
