As reported by Daily Nigerian, the former national chairmanship aspirant of the APC, Mohammed Saidu-Etsu, filed a suit seeking the nullification of the appointment of Ganduje as the national chairman of the ruling party by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party.

In a suit filed at the FCT High Court Abuja on Friday, May 3, Mr Etsu asked the court to declare the appointment illegal, patently unconstitutional, null, and of no effect.

He urged the court to grant injunction restraining Mr Ganduje from parading or representing, or holding out himself as the national chairman of the APC in any form or guise, whatsoever.

This came after the court restrained the police from arresting APC ward executives who purportedly suspended Abdullahi Umar Ganduje.

Justice Yusuf Ubale Muhammad of a Kano high court granted an exparte on the matter on Thursday, May 2.

Meanwhile, the executive council of Ganduje’s ward, led by Haruna Gwanjo, suspended the former Kano governor.

According to Gwanjo, the former governor has to clear his name of corruption allegations regarding his long-standing dollar case.
