The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has taken a new twist as new executives emerged from Ganduje’s ward, issuing fresh suspension on acting National Chairman of the party, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje.

Ganduje was last week suspended by another faction of the party executives in his ward led by Haladu Gwanjo.

Citing alleged corruption among other offenses, Gwanjo said that the decision to suspend the ex-Kano governor was taken by nine executive members of the party in Ganduje ward.

But another faction represented by Ahmad Ganduje emerged to declare support for the national chairman, insisting the ward officials were satisfied with his leadership style.

However, in yet another twist, the group led by the secretary of the ward Jaafar Adamu has disclosed to journalist on Sunday that 11 out of the twenty-seven executive members of Ganduje ward were the legitimate ward excos legally elected on 31st July, 2021.

Jaafar, who is also a nephew to Ganduje said, “We are the authentic executives of Ganduje ward and have passed a vote of no confidence and imposed new suspension on Dr Umar Ganduje for a series of reasons.

“First we have suspended Dr. Ganduje’s membership for creating internal conflict among party members at the ward level. Another major reason why the authentic executives resolved to suspend Ganduje is the issue of anti-party activities he generated during the 2023 elections, which resulted in the party’s failure in the state”.

He emphasized that the two factions claiming to be executives were imposters orchestrated by Ganduje and other bad elements in the party.

As of the time of filing this report, the State Executive Council had not reacted to the development.
