Tofa-led APC executives deny being behind Ganduje’s suspension


Executives of the All Progressives Congress in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Ward in Kano State, have denied being behind Monday’s suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Abdullahi Ganduje.

The rebuttal was made on Wednesday by the Legal Adviser of Dawakin Tofa Local Government Ward in Kano State, Halliru Gwanzo, when he led a 27-member delegation on a solidarity visit to Ganduje at the party secretariat.

Gwanzo stated that he knew nothing about Wednesday’s court case filed against the former Kano State governor.

The development is coming two days after the same politician told journalists in Kano that the decision to suspend the former governor was taken by the APC ward leadership.

Gwanzo explained that the bribery charges filed against Ganduje by the Kano State Government and his arraignment scheduled for Thursday as the reason for their action.

Gwanzo, while addressing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday claimed he was impersonated, begged the ruling party to probe the matter and punish those found culpable.

According to him, “I am here today with 27 members from our ward in Dawakin Tofa Local Government in Kano State to tell the whole world that we know nothing about the purported suspension of our national chairman. It is not true.”

He said that he was surprised, just like every other person, to see his name again as one of the plaintiffs that took legal action against him this morning (Wednesday), saying that it is utterly false.

According to him, he knows nothing about all the allegations, and used the opportunity to call on the leadership of their great party and the National Working Committee to go after the impersonators.

He suggested that they should not be spared, believing that they know it is orchestrated by the NNPP government and the Kwankwasiyya group.
