Kano govt behind my ‘Africa Magic’ suspension, Ganduje alleges

Share this article

The National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Dr Abdullahi Ganduje has said no amount of sponsored impostors and illegal suspension can distract him from making the governing party the first choice for electorates.

He noted that he was not moved by the recent purported suspension allegedly orchestrated by the Governor Abba Yusuf- led administration in Kano State.

Ganduje spoke on Tuesday at the National Secretariat of the party when the Forum of APC State Chairmen paid a solidarity visit and passed a vote of confidence on him.

According to him, the leadership of the party remained focused despite the needless distractions.

“We were so astonished when we heard the news (of his suspension) but we were not surprised when we discovered that the great threat that APC overwhelmingly poses to other parties is real and Kano State is not an exception.

“The government in Kano State is behind this drama. Even the drama is one kind of drama that is called Africa Magic. This is Africa Magic and it is not leading democracy anywhere.

“It is a negative innovation where members who belong to a different political party, not even our members, let alone being elected executive members of either the ward or to the highest level at the state, meeting themselves and taking resolutions that affect the nation as far as our party is concerned, that is not acceptable.

“Our party cannot be distracted, we assure you. Our attention cannot be diverted. We are focused. We know where we are heading to. We know our objectives and we know to achieve our objectives”.

Passing a vote of confidence on the National Chairman, the acting chairman of the Forum of APC State Chairmen, Hon Cornelius Ojelabi, said they were at the party’s National Secretariat to affirm confidence in him.

The Lagos APC chair said: “We are here to let you know that you are the captain of the ship. We are here to let you know that these are also your foot soldiers in the 36 states of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and FCT.

“We are here to show our solidarity and sincere commitment to appreciate what members of the nwc have been doing in standing by you by giving you total support. We feel it is important that the act of that solidarity should not be left to the National Working Committee NWC alone.

“Today, we bring the solidarity of the 36 states and the FCT to tell the public that we are solidly behind you. You have started a journey of growing our party, restructuring it, growing it and we are pretty sure that you are in course. You keep briefing us on the steps you are taking.

“For any person or group who are not even in our party to think they can come and derail us, it won’t work”.

Members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party also expressed support for the National Chairman.

The National Vice Chairman (South South), Hon. Victor Giadem passed their votes of confidence on Ganduje.
