“Take your sack in good faith”, Ganduje tells embattled Kano APC Ex-Co

Kano State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has told the factional executives of the All Progressives Congress, (APC), loyal to him to accept the recent court judgment sacking them in good faith.

Ganduje, who stated this at a meeting with members of his faction in Africa House, Government House, Kano on Sunday, said he would no longer be distracted by party crisis but would rather focus more on developmental projects.

Recall that an Abuja High Court had on 30 November sacked the leadership of the APC faction in the state loyal to the governor. The court declared the executives of a faction loyal to a former governor of the State, Ibrahim Shekarau, who is the current senator representing Kano-Central, as duly elected leaders of the party in the State.

The court reaffirmed the judgment last Friday.

Governor Ganduje asked the sacked Ex-Co members to take the judgment in good faith and should not resort to violence, adding that the meeting was convened to intimate the Party officials of his decision. He, however, did not say whether they would appeal the judgment or not.

He said the judgment came even though they followed all the procedures during both wards and local government congresses of the party and in accordance with the normal Party directives.

Earlier in his remarks, the embattled factional chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, said all the party leaders in the 44 local government areas of the State have passed a vote of confidence on Ganduje.

“This is the message of Party Ex-Cos that their loyalty to the governor is intact. Whatever will happen, they said they are with you (Governor Ganduje)”, Abbas stated.
