The APC Dawakin Tofa Local Government chairman, Inusa Dawanau, told newsmen that those behind the suspension of the national chairman were caught in anti-party activities, adding that their records of meetings with the opposition were exposed.

The party's state working committee adopted the suspension of the ward APC leaders and sanctioned the perpetrators for six months. A special investigations panel has been set up to verify several allegations against them.

The Kano APC chairman, Abdullahi Abbas, said the LG party leaders' decisions have since been adopted.

He said:

"We have evidence of meetings between the state government officials and those that suspended the National Chairman. The state working committee has agreed to sanction them for six months, and they are suspended."

However, one of the party men accused against Ganduje, Halliru Gwanjo, said they decided to suspend him from the party due to the bribery allegations levelled against him by the Kano state government.

Court gives verdict on Ganduje's bribe video

Legit.ng earlier reported that a Federal High Court in Kano ruled that the allegation against Abdullahi Ganduj was a federal matter, and only the EFCC or the attorney general of the federation could investigate him.

The court said the state government did not have the legal standing to investigate the APC national chairman over the alleged dollar bribery scandal.

Ganduje is under investigation over bribery allegations after being seen collecting bonds of dollars from a contractor in a video when he was governor.
