Again, Shekarau’s Faction Defeats Ganduje’s Camp In Court
A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court has refused an application by members of the Kano State All Progressives Congress (APC) loyal to Governor Abdullahi Ganduje to set aside the judgment which upheld congresses of the party held by another faction.
The court presided by Justice Hamza Muazu also declined jurisdiction on the application to stay execution of the judgment pending the determination of an appeal at the Court of Appeal.
The court had on November 30, 2021, upheld the ward and local government congresses won by members believed to be loyal to Senator Ibrahim Shekarau and Senator Jibril Barau (Kano North) numbering about 17, 908 members.
The court had refused a preliminary objection by members loyal to Governor Ganduje seeking to uphold the fresh congresses.
