Stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the North Central region have thrown their weight behind the suspension of the party’s National Chairman, Dr. Abdullahi Ganduje.

They are also demanding that the seat previously held by Abdullahi Adamu be returned to their zone.


Addressing the media in Abuja on Sunday, APC stalwarts expressed their discontent with what they perceive as the imposition of Ganduje on the party, which they deem a violation of the party’s zoning process.

This move comes following a fresh suspension imposed on Ganduje by a faction of the Ganduje Ward in Dawakin Tofa Local Government Area of Kano State.

The ward’s Legal Adviser, Haladu Gwanjo, announced the suspension, citing an alleged bribery case involving Ganduje and his wife.

Despite efforts by the Kano APC to thwart the suspension, including the suspension of the ward executives involved, a new court injunction upheld Ganduje’s suspension.

Speaking on behalf of Concerned North Central APC Stakeholders, Muhammad Etsu, emphasized their support for Ganduje’s suspension and called for the return of the party chairmanship to their region.

They argued that it was improper to replace Abdullahi Adamu, a North Central politician, with Ganduje, who hails from the North West.

Etsu appealed to President Bola Tinubu and the National Executive Committee of the APC to intervene and uphold Ganduje’s suspension while efforts are made to restore the chairmanship position to the North Central.

Sunny Moniedafe, an APC chieftain from Adamawa, echoed the sentiments of the North Central stakeholders, asserting that zoning principles should be respected within the party.

He emphasized that the chairmanship position rightfully belongs to the North Central and should be retained following Adamu’s departure.

However, Ganduje’s Senior Special Assistant on Public Enlightenment, Chief Oliver Okpala, dismissed the concerns raised by the stakeholders, attributing them to individuals in need of psychiatric evaluation.

He urged the federal government to take action against those instigating the crisis within the party, accusing them of undermining democratic processes.

Despite the legal complexities surrounding Ganduje’s suspension, the push for the reclamation of the APC chairmanship seat by North Central stakeholders underscores the ongoing power struggles within the party.
