Why Maryam Suleiman was suspended

On Sunday, the Kaduna state APC leadership announced the suspension of Maryam Suleiman, its women leader, after she defended the state's former governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

Her suspension followed her criticism of the claim by the state governor, Uba Sani, that his government inherited a high debt profile from that of El-Rufai.

The governor disclosed that his administration inherited a debt of $587 million, N85 billion, and 115 contractual liabilities from his predecessor.

However, the women leader of the APC in the state expressed strong opposition to the governor's remarks, describing him as treacherous.
