Suspension Saga: Ganduje Secures Court Leaves To Serve Ward APC Leaders Through Village Head



The National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, APC, Dr Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, has secured Federal High Court leaves to serve Court Order on his Ganduje’s APC Ward Leaders through Village Head.

The Court granted an application by the APC national chairman Abdullahi Umar Ganduje for substituted service on APC Ganduje ward executive members who had suspended him from the party.

Justice Abdullahi Muhammad Liman granted the application moved by Ganduje’s Lawyer Hadiza Nasiru Ahmad Esq on Tuesday.

The ward executives led by one Haladu Gwanjo and 8 others had on 15 April suspended Ganduje from the party for alleged infractions.

The federal high court had on the 18 April granted an interim order asking parties to maintain status quo pending hearing and determination of the fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Ganduje against his suspension.

The APC national chairman is seeking for a declaration of the court that his suspension from the party by the ward executives was illegal and ultra-vires having not given him opportunity to defend himself which he said amounts to denial of his fundamental right.

Ganduje is also seeking 100 million naira general damages against the respondents for violating his right to fair hearing.

His counsel explained that when the respondents are served with the court summons through the village village of Ganduje in Dawakin Tofa local government area of Kano state, a date would be fixed for hearing in the matter.

Justice Usman Na’Abba of the Kano state High court had on 17 April granted an interim order affirming the suspension of the APC national chairman by his APC ward executive members.

The judge later granted an order restraining his earlier order.
